Compliance through deterrence is the major criteria for the implementation of environmental laws. The study conducted by Jerry and Amy, (2023), showed that this compliance through deterrence was implemented only to not allow the violator to have an economic advantage over the non-violator. The data obtained in the study, indicated that...

Climate change imposes an increasingly big challenge worldwide regarding floods and droughts. The Netherlands is no exception to this, as it has been increasingly hit by these phenomena in recent years, especially in the south of the country. The July 2021 flood in the Geul catchment intensified discussions on climate resilience. It prompts...

Urban areas are prone to extremely high temperatures as a result of climate change and the urban heat island effect. Urban micro-climate modelling has become an important tool to evaluate the effect of heat mitigating measures and develop climate-sensitive urban designs. However, many models lack the accurate fine scale simulation of...

Snijders, Kevin (author)
Urban areas often experience temperature imbalances, resulting in higher temperatures than their rural surroundings, known as the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect. This effect has adverse consequences such as heightened heat-related morbidity and mortality, amplified energy demands, aggravated water scarcity, and diminished urban living comfort....

Understanding wind profiles in urban areas is vital for various applications including urban planning and environmental science. This study aims to characterise the modification of wind profiles in The Heat Square through anemometer observations, focusing on the influence of building morphology. Previous studies have endorsed methodologies that...

This study investigates the dynamics of seasonal precipitation in Suriname with the help of moisture tracking and Sea Surface Temperature correlations. Prolonged drought periods, heavy precipitation events and accompanying flash floods and landslides are expected to increase in Suriname in the coming years. Reliable seasonal precipitation...

Suriname is highly vulnerable to hazards that are climate change related, such as droughts and floods. Knowledge about future precipitation in Suriname is needed for the population of Suriname in order to adapt to climate change effects. By analysing 32 CMIP6 models, this study investigates the impact of climate change on precipitation in...

In this research, the use of spatially applied adaptive pathways for rainwater resilient redesign of urban areas is investigated. It is explored how adaptive pathways can contribute to the integration of the climate stress of pluvial flooding in the planning process for the redesign of existing urban areas. This is done by developing adaptive...

The sea level is rising, possibly by one meter, by the end of this century. The Netherlands is preparing for this scenario through Kennisprogramma Zeespiegelstijging (KP-ZSS). One of the goals is to determine the hydraulic effects of sea level rise (SLR) on the current system. For the flood risk analysis within<br/>KP-ZSS, the current strength...

The Pearl River Delta region, where the author of this project grew up, has been a source of inspiration due to the devastating impacts of natural disasters such as flooding, hurricanes, and storms on the limited freshwater resources in the area. Water is a crucial necessity for the inhabitants of the PRD, but the complexity of the water system,...

On the 13th and 14th of July 2021 a cold pit caused extreme precipitation along with record discharges in tributaries of the Meuse. These discharges caused floods in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.<br/><br/>Extreme precipitation occurrence and its intensity are expected to increase in the area due to climate change, increasing flood risk....

This research explores the frequent urban flooding problems typically experienced in South-East Asian cities. Heavy rainfall during the monsoon period in combination with rapid urbanisation in the past decades causes an increasing amount of inundation events in the case study area Hanoi. The damage caused by these floods results in major...

Concrete is affected by a variety of environmental factors, and its temperature varies with time and other meteorological factors. The subsequent construction of the Heat Square is supported by an analysis of concrete temperature changes and their environmental influences. This article evaluates the variation of concrete block temperature by two...

The Geul river, a tributary of the Meuse located in the south Netherlands, Belgium, and part of Germany, is vulnerable to extreme hydrological events, such as floods, droughts, and erosion. There is evidence that these conditions are exacerbated by land use and climate changes. This thesis focuses on investigating the temporal variability and...

Flash floods are a major concern in hydrology and natural hazard science due to their high potential of causing fatalities and damages. They are caused by short, high-intensity rainfall and characterized by a flood event happening within six hours of the onset of precipitation.<br/>In July 2021 an extremely large rainfall event took place in the...

Managing water resources for the future is challenging, given the wide range of climatic and hydrological uncertainty. To support decision makers in formulating robust adaptation plans and finding their way through the broad range of available climate data and models, decision scaling was introduced: an approach for bottom-up climate...

To encourage climateadaptive building in the Netherlands the Covenant ClimateAdaptive Building (CKAB) was developed by a consortium of stakeholders (Convenant klimaatadaptief bouwen in ZuidHolland, 2018). This nonbinding agreement proposed standards for six (climate) aspects in order to adapt the Netherlands to a changing...

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are useful tools to manage rainwater and reduce pollutants in urban environments. Their use, as sustainable solutions, can mitigate the effects of climate change and urbanization. The existence of different definitions of performance is one reason for delaying more implementation of SUDS. Deciding on the...
