Live Pole Drains (LPDs) are a plant-based drainage system used to drain natural slopes and prevent shallow gully erosion. LPDs are a Nature-based Solution built by placing a live fascine in a shallow ditch or gully along the slope direction, allowing moderate fluxes of surface runoff or seepage to infiltrate and high water fluxes to be conveyed...

The Vietnamese Mekong Delta, a vital region in the country’s economy, faces the dual challenges of coastal erosion and mangrove degradation, which threaten its long-term sustainability and flood protection capabilities. This research focuses on the coastal area of the Bac Lieu province, characterized by severe erosion and degrading mangrove...

Rivers play a crucial role in shaping landscapes and supporting ecosystems. This is demonstrated by the tiger habitats in and around Bardia National Park in West-Nepal, which rely on the Karnali River. This study contributes to a larger effort aimed at sustainably managing these tiger habitats. Monitoring the rivers in this remote area is...

The study of water is without question an important one. We can learn a lot by studying the theory but in the end, it is essential to actually go out into the field and see the hydrological processes in practice for ourselves. The educational value of fieldwork lies not only in seeing theory become reality but also in experiencing the...

Groundwater extraction has increased significantly in Nepal. In combination with climate change, this might lead to accelerated groundwater resource depletion. No recent research has been done in the assessment of these resources in the Banke district development area in the Terai. This study aims to assess whether the intensification of...

Under the current climate change projections, droughts and extreme rainfall events are becoming more common and intense. During sustained droughts, soil cracks can develop in the topsoil of a dike. These soil cracks can enhance the infiltration and drainage of the dike, affecting the dike stability. This study’s main objective is to better...

Due to rising temperatures, rainfall patterns around the world are being affected, causing extreme precipitation events to become more frequent and intense, resulting in an increased probability of severe flash floods. Thailand is no exception to the increased risk of these hazards, which is why Early Warning Systems are being set up. Since...

Climate change causes an increase of precipitation intensity and frequency, which leads to an increased amount of landslide occurrences. Therefore, there is an urgent need for prevention measures. The risk of landslide occurrence can be mitigated by decreasing the pore water pressure in a hillslope, e.g. by drainage from the subsurface. The...

Leaching of phosphorus (P) from agricultural land is an important source of eutrophication in the Bollenstreek in the Netherlands. This is because floriculture has led to high P concentrations in the sandy soils with low organic carbon content, which are characterised by a low retention capacity for P. In this study, P concentrations in...

Empirical-statistical rainfall landslide initiation thresholds are popularly used for early warning systems to discriminate between the occurrence and non-occurrence of rainfall-induced landslides. However, the few studies that have derived landslide initiation thresholds for landslide-prone and data-scarce Rwanda rely solely on the limited in...

Colloidal particle swarms can show settling velocities over a thousand times as fast as that of a single particle. The transport of colloidal particles is thus strongly affected by the formation and behaviour of these particle swarms, which could have important implications for the widespread use and prevalence of colloidal particles. Swarming...

Myanmar lacks a water quality monitoring system to monitor changes in water quality in the Ayeyarwady Basin. This study aims to find to what extent changes in water quality can be measured in the Ayeyarwady basin and to identify requirements for a water quality monitoring system. In this study, the current water quality monitoring systems of the...

Surface water tracing experiments help to identify the flow paths of in-stream mass transport. This provides useful information for developing mitigation measures for contamination, and thereby for solving environmental problems. Salts, fluorescent dyes and isotopes are commonly used tracer substances.<br/>However, it is well known these tracers...

The validation of satellite retrieved soil moisture over a tropical region (Bago, Myanmar) has been conducted in this research. The downscaled soil moisture products of VanderSat using the Land Parameter Retrieval Model, were compared with an in-situ soil moisture network that operated between 2017 and 2018 and a newly placed network installed...

The Netherlands is a country prone to flooding. Recent assessments led to the insight that protection levels of many flood defences should be increased. Integrating reinforcement measures is a difficult task as many dikes are situated in densely populated areas. Conventional reinforcement measures include berm construction or the implementation...

The Gulf of Mottama, located in the southwest of Myanmar, is home to morphologically interesting processes. An entrance of around 100 km wide narrows into a funnel­shaped bay towards the Sittaung River in the north. The entire estuary region is subject to strong dynamic morphological activity which is alleged to be driven by the large tidal...

Rapid urbanization has altered the natural hydrological cycle of the Tub Ma catchment, inducing major floods after heavy rainfall events. For that reason, structural mitigation measures were built, including floodwalls along the channel and a pumping station at the outlet. However, no operational rules were available for operating the river...

Meltwater features play an important role in the stability of the Antarctic ice shelves. They can destabilize ice shelves by exerting additional loading forces due to the weight of the water concentrated on one location. However, it is possible that developed meltwater networks transport water from an ice shelf into the ocean. In this way, they...
