The hydropower development in the Mekong Basin affects the silt and clay concentrations in the river which has ecological as well as socio-economic effects on the Mekong Delta and its inhabitants. Therefore, the first objective of this research was to obtain a better understanding of the effect of hydropower development on the silt and clay load...

A personal weather station (PWS) is a set of weather measuring instruments that is owned and operated by an individual, club, association, or business. Even tho these stations might be less advanced as the professional stations, the amount of amateur stations that are active is much higher. With these PWS networks in full effect and still...

Ceramic ultrafiltration is a promising technology for water reclamation, but issues with membrane fouling and the removal of organic micro-pollutants have limited its development. Recent research has shown that catalysis-based ultrafiltration has the potential to address these problems. In this study, catalysis-modified (CuFe2O4 and Pd)...

The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...

The Mekong Delta is facing some complicated challenges in the near future. Its geographical location and the fact that it is a delta result in low elevation levels which makes it vulnerable to inundation. This problem will only become bigger in the future due to the effects of climate change. To get funding from organisations like the world bank...

Recirculation and infiltration of leachate in landfills are performed to accelerate the process of stabilizing organic matter in waste. At landfill De Kragge (Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands), leachate recirculation and infiltration measures started in March 2018. This research aims to provide insight related to leachate flow throughout the...

The Catterline Bay, located in North East Scotland, is prone to erosion processes. Using Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) two point clouds were obtained in 2019 and 2022 from this area of ca. 0.2 km<sup>2</sup>. Here, a methodology was proposed and tested to assess how erosion processes can be monitored from high resolution point clouds in small...

A monitoring case study of the hydrologic performance of the Aquaflow infiltrating road foundation. The results show a good performance in peak delay of 4 - 8 hours, volume retention of 50% to 97% and peak reduction of 15% to 76% for varying rainfall events and initial soil conditions. The results are promising for future implementation to...

The wastewater system in the Netherlands is ageing, which increases the probability of failure of the systems as time progresses. A vital failure mechanism is leakages, which occur in leaky connections, joints, or at cracks and holes along the pipe. Eventually, leakages result in infiltration of groundwater into the sewer pipe or exfiltration of...

Humans have a long history of intervening in natural river systems. These human interventions affect how water and sediment interact with the bed and banks of the river. The interaction between water and sediment is called morphodynamics and is an important component of the natural ecosystem of the river and its surroundings. This research aims...

Anticipatory action requires models that can accurately and reliably predict the impact of natural hazards. However, impact forecasts are often underestimated when consecutive hazards are not considered. In the Bicol region in the Philippines, typhoons trigger 90% of landslides, causing a lot of fatalities and damage to infrastructure and...

The objective of this thesis is to assess the effects of climate change on the initial, transient and equilibrium response of mixed-sediment river. Climate change will cause changes to hydrographs, which in turn affects sediment transport capacity and thereby the river bed profile. In order to create a better understanding of the processes in...

Though slow sand filtration is one of the oldest and effective means of drinking water treatment, the mechanisms contributing to bacteria and viruses removal are not well understood. The lack of understanding of actual removal potential and different mechanisms occurring in the filter bed has limited the development of new filter design and...

There is a growing demand for detailed and accurate landslide maps and inventories worldwide. The mapping of landslides is essential for emergency response, disaster mitigation and a better understanding of landslides. Currently, it is still difficult to detect the timing and extent of landslides accurately through satellite imagery. Most often...

"Landfills form the final stage in waste processing and are sources of multiple environmentally harmful emissions. Due to the biodegradation of organic material, methane, a strong greenhouse gas, is released into the air and soluble pollutants, like ammonium or heavy metals, are flushed out of the landfill waste. In modern landfills, the waste...

In this study, the effects of extreme flood events on vegetation and morphological patterns in a natural river were investigated. For this purpose a new vegetation-development model was introduced and linked to a hydro-morphodynamic Delft3D Flexible Mesh model. Based on the results in this study it can be concluded that the direct effects of an...

Drinking water safety is critical to public health and the stability of drinking water quality is highly related with drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs). Antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and their hosts are the two major concerns in drinking water, however, the knowledge of fate of ARGs and their hosts were limited due to the current...

According to the United Nations, eutrophication is the most prevalent water quality problem. Developing countries especially are struggling to manage the increasing volume of untreated wastewater. A preliminary study of a Dutch-Indian partnership, developing universal watermanagement (LOTUSHR), has shown some indication of ortho-phosphate...

In Indonesia, river pollution due to inorganic solid waste has become an enormous issue. This article explores the (re)production of relations between communities, river and inorganic solid waste in the Surabaya River Basin. It does so by analysing activities based on interviews, observations and measurements. It tries to explain the current...
