River discharge is traditionally required with a lot of measurements and data. However there are areas where discharge data is not available. In this research a tool is developed based on hydraulic geometry relations to estimate the discharge of a river in bank full state near Narok, Kenya. With the help of the Global Navigation Satellite System...

Fully distributed hydrological models take into account the spatial variability of a catchment, and allow for assessing its hydrological response at virtually any location. However, these models can be time-consuming when it comes to model runtime and calibration, especially for large-scale catchments. Meanwhile, deep learning models have shown...

In July 2021 severe flooding occurred in the South of Limburg, Belgium, and Germany due to heavy precipitation. Extreme precipitation events like this are expected to occur more often in our changing climate. Urbanization is thought to be another contributing factor to the July 2021 flood event. The Netherlands is expected to increase...

Floods are the most frequent natural disaster and due to climate change the frequency and intensity of these events are increasing. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important to obtain accurate estimations of extreme discharges. Statistical modelling is widely used to estimate extreme discharges by fitting observed extreme discharges to an...

Capillary barrier systems (CBSs) have been demonstrated to be effective in deviating infiltration in a landfill cover. However, their performance when combined with a cover soil optimised for methane oxidation had not been tested in the field yet. This study aimed to describe the water balance of a test field where such a configuration was built...

The Bui Dam, the second-largest hydropower dam in Ghana, plays a significant role in the sustainable energy mix of the country. It is managed by the Bui Power Authority (BPA) and has a capacity of hydro-clean generation of 404MW, contributing to 17% of the country’s total electricity generation. However, decision-making at the dam lacks the use...

The integrated management of river catchments is a challenge to be addressed by many water authorities, where some of them even today do not yet incorporate the aquifers’ status in decision-making. This situation has led to the depletion of many aquifers, deeply affecting the drinking water supply, agriculture, and industries. This challenge is...

Under future warmer climates, drought events are projected to occur more frequently with increasing impacts in many regions and river basins. This study focuses on exploring the potential of the LSTM deep learning (DL) approach for operational streamflow drought forecasting for the Rhine River at Lobith with a lead time (LT) of up to 46 days. ...

Modeling the relationship between rainfall and runoff is a longstanding challenge in hydrology and is crucial for informed water management decisions. Recently, Deep Learning models, particularly Long short-term memory (LSTM), have shown promising results in simulating this relationship. The Transformer, a newly proposed deep learning...

In this thesis, an easily reproducible modeling approach was developed for assessing the climate change impact on streamflow. This approach was tested by using it to assess the impact of climate change on streamflow in 5 different contrasting catchments across the United States. Many studies show that climate change is expected to influence...

The Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) is an important component of the climate system and is a key contributor to future sea level rise, as it is storing frozen water that would raise sea levels by 7.4 m should it all melt (Bamber et al., 2018). Of particular concern is the amount of global warming we are facing now and in the future, as it is becoming...

Recent reports show that deforestation in Latin-America has been severe over the last decades. Especially Brazil is subject to an alarming rate of forest loss, which will remain a factor in the coming decades. In addition to deforestation, there is an increasing amount of hazards like floods and mudslides. These hazards result in major damage to...

Floods and droughts, also known as hydro-hazards, are phenomena that generally involve detrimental consequences to society and environment. Traditional practices for risk assessment consider flood and drought independently. However, they are two opposite extremes of the same hydrological cycle. Omitting their interaction might lead to an under-...

The water balance model has been an indispensable tool for quantifying water supply and demand and regulating water resources for decades. By convention, hydrologists use in-situ measurements of river discharge for model calibration. Whereas hardly is it possible for areas suffering from data storage. Researchers have been working on methods...

Hydrological models are designed to represent the interactions between the<br/>physical process and the water storage in short-term or long-term forecasting. The hydrological models in climate models (also know as Land Surface Models) aim to represent hydrological processes and interactions at a global scale. In this research, one Land Surface...

Rainfall-runoff modelling is essential for short- and long-term decision-making in the water management sector. The accuracy of streamflow predictions of hydrologic models increases with the availability of and the access to streamflow observations. Therefore, one of the key challenges in the field of hydrology is to produce Predictions in...

Human interventions in the White Volta River in Ghana increase the flood risk in living spaces of the local communities, causing great challenges in the area. Burkina Faso has built a hydropower dam near the border with Ghana which has a large impact on the discharge extremes of the White Volta River. As a result of poor water management of this...

Urban climate adaptation is generally attained --- in a hydrological perspective -- by implementing stormwater management techniques, such as grey, blue and green adaptation measures. Implementing such multi-functional adaptation measures touches on the interests of many stakeholders who need to work together to find resilient and suiting...

Accurate estimates of terrestrial water storage variations (TWSV) are critical for a variety of applications, e.g., model calibration and climate studies. This study aims to find the added value of river run-off data for regularizing GRACE mascon solution, from which TWSV can be estimated. Most subbasins of the Mississippi Basin show an...

Droughts are considered to be one of the most damaging, yet least understood, natural hazards of all. Despite their prevalence, a thorough understanding of them lacks because they are such complex phenomena, and their manifestation can differ depending on the region they occur in. Monitoring hydrological variables and processes is imperative for...
