Plastic pollution in aquatic ecosystems is a global problem. Rivers transport large quantities of litter from land to the oceans. Plastics of different sizes and properties are widely present at various locations in river systems. Concerning macroplastics, previous studies mainly focussed on floating plastics, however, substantial parts of the...

Along river banks, on the transition zone between the river and see, tidal marshes can develop. The tidal marshes accommodate multiple plant and fish species. As a result of the stressful conditions in tidal marshes, unique intertidal ecology develops. However, due to the densifying of the river banks, tidal marshes are disappearing. <br/...

This study investigates the many dynamics of the Manyame Catchment and comes up with recommendations on how to adapt or become more resilient to the risks at hand. The bad politics and forthcoming economic situation of Zimbabwe has led to instability and dramatic inflation over the last decade. This has resulted in a terrible investment climate,...

Direct measurement of river discharge is difficult, time consuming and costly. Therefore a rating curve is often used to estimate the river discharge. Limited measurements under extreme conditions result in extrapolation of the rating curve for high flow conditions. This induces uncertainties and errors in the stage-discharge relation. Recently...

The main focus of this project is to gain insight into feasible strategies for sustainable water supply in a community inhabited by indigenous people. This was done by an intervention study in a small village called El Progreso in the province of Colon, on the Caribbean coast of Panama. The project aims to provide safe drinking water to the 80...

Climate models predict increased Arctic precipitation and subsequent Arctic freshening as a response to increased green house gas concentrations. Eulerian studies have shown that with increased Arctic precipitation AMOC (Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation) strength decreases. Decrease in AMOC strength comes with a decreased...

Conventional practices of rating curve computation fall short in many aspects. They are data-intensive and are notoriously inaccurate in high-flow regimes as a result of extrapolation of low-flow curve fitting. By making use of a simple commercial UAV, a physically-based rating curve is computed that is substantiated by a detailed representation...

The direct measurement of discharges in rivers can be time-consuming and costly. The discharge is commonly estimated indirectly by means of a curve, relating water level to discharge. This so-called rating curve is traditionally determined by fitting a curve to a number of observations, which induces several uncertainties and difficulties: 1)...
