This thesis describes the approaches applied to attempt to solve the numerical problems of the regional atmospheric model incorporated in the coupled modelling of regional water balance and anthropogenic land cover change in Amazon basin. For computational efficiency, the previous atmospheric model is evaluated at monthly scale. In order to cope...

During the 2011 Great East Japan Tsunami, the world’s deepest breakwaters in Kamaishi and Ofunato, which had been designed to reduce tsunami damage, partially failed after over-topping. The failure was due to a combination of sliding, over-topping induced foundation scour and foundation bearing capacity failure. Hindcasting this failure required...

In Bangladesh, groundwater from shallow aquifers is used for communal drinking water supply on a large scale. This water is often polluted by naturally occurring arsenic, causing the largest scale poisoning through drinking water in the world (D. v. Halem, S. Bakker, G. Amy, & J. Van Dijk, 2009). In this report, a highly arsenic affected...

At the Shonai River around Nagoya, Japan, several flood related problems occur. These problems occur at different locations, each with its own problems or limitations. The desired safety level as requested by the government is that the river should be able to have a discharge which has a probability of failure of once in 200 years. At many...

MOSES DSS web-platform aims to assist stakeholders such as governments and farmers in order to manage water irrigation distribution in a higher efficiency and sustainability. The constructed algorithms are focused on forecast using weather models, data, as well as satellite multispectral observations in such a way that a 7-day ahead crop water...

A freshening of the boundary current (Labrador current and West Greenland Current) supresses deep convection in the Labrador Sea. Furthermore, the fresher water contributes to the ``strength'' of Irminger Rings and increases their life time. This leads to a larger spread of high EKE into the interior of the Labrador Sea and confines the deep...

After the earthquake in 2015 that struck Nepal, students of the Delft University of Technology commenced the multidisciplinary project program “Shock Safe Nepal”. This report describes the effort of the sixth group of students who travelled to Nepal. Following conclusions and specific recommendations of Team 5, the present research has one main...

Every year the second years of the bachelor Applied Earth Science have a geological fieldwork in Southern France. To supervise the students after a day in the field the idea is to collect a 3D model database of the outcrops in the field. This is done by photogrammetry and the open-source program MicMac.
In this report an acquisition protocol...

The Morgan-Morgan-Finney (MMF) model is identified as the most appropriate hillslope soil erosion model for high resolution global application with the objective of identifying relative erosion risk areas and modelling the effect of land cover changes on erosion at a catchment scale. This is justified by its simple model structure, low input...

Japan and the Netherlands have very different physical, historical and cultural contexts but they share a vulnerability to extreme flood related events and have, in both their (relatively) recent pasts, had to recover from such events: be they the floods of 1953 in the Netherlands or the tsunami that hit Japan’s east coast in 2011. This paper...

Failure of slopes has been a frequently occurring hazard, which leads to loss of life and resources. To stabilize the slopes, vegetation has been used, where stump of plant roots act as passive piles by providing mechanical reinforcement. In this research, effect of spacing of trees on load transfer mechanism in a slope has been studied and...

The submerged floating crossing (SFC) considered in this study has demonstrated significant sustainability based on provided assumptions. the SFC has appeared to be a sheltered and sound idea appropriate to satisfy its expected capacities and to tackle given environmental conditions. The structure of the proposed SFC is intended to withstand all...

In the Netherlands flood protection is immensely important for the safety of the nation. The shocking outcome of the 1953 flooding proves this point. In modern days, the development of socioeconomic and climate change factors casts doubt on the effectiveness of conventional approaches to flood risk management. Consequently, this project explored...

Relative sea level rise and climate change represent long-term threats for the ecosystems and flood defence system in the Wadden Sea. Moreover, the flood-dominant tidal basins in the area lead to sedimentation in the navigational channels used by the ferry services that connect the mainland to the Dutch Wadden islands. This report provides flood...

Two polluted Ghanaian lagoons are investigated and possible engineering solutions are suggested and researched.
The first lagoon is the Sakumo lagoon, located between Accra and Tema. This lagoon is connected to the sea through a small culvert, which enables a limited amount of water exchange. Since a few years, fishermen have been unable to...

Tropical cyclones have the ability to very quickly increase in strength. This process is called rapid intensification and as a result, tropical cyclones can transform into hurricanes. Rapid intensification is related to the availability of heat and the amount of negative feedback of the ocean on the tropical cyclone. Negative feedback results in...

‘What are the aesthetic implications of designing with nature?’1 A question that Ralph Knowles tried to answer in his paper Solar Aesthetics and that immediately attracted my attention, so much that I tried to make it my aim for the project. Following the decision to design a house in northern Italy, the most direct and simple response to nature...

The contemporary architecture is often based on our usual methods of energy-focused sustainable buildings. These seem to strive toward excessive insulation and mechanical ventilation to create a sustainable building. It is driven by adding technical measures later in the project rather than creating sustainable architecture. In this report I...

The main goal of this project is to determine the optimal location for an OTEC installation with a minimum lifespan of 30 years off the coast of Barranquilla and to make an anchor mooring design for the floater on which this installation is located. Bluerise has identified an area near the coast of Barranquilla for which OTEC can be applied....
