Additional thesis - Precipitation and especially rainfall are very important for the world’s population. It has its positive and negative side like providing water and contrary causing floods. Therefore it is of utmost importance to make clear and accurate weather predictions. The revolution of GPS in the last few decades gave a new opportunity...

Additional thesis - To improve weather monitoring, local near-real time weather forecasts and climate monitoring, a dense network of sensors should be set up. As shown already in the 1990s, GPS is a promising measurement device to form a dense network for meteorology observation. Because of economic reasons, a network of dual frequency GPS...

Additional Thesis - All around the world many species are dying out locally or entirely due to interferences in their habitats. One of the big problems for marine life is the creation of migration barriers which preclude migrating species to complete their life cycle.Fish passages are a way for migrating species to get around obstructions in a...

Additional thesis - Rapid advancements in satellite observation technologies have resulted in an unprecedented availability of remotely sensed rainfall characteristics. These freely available precipitation measurements could be of great value for improving current weather prediction, particularly in developing countries where other data is...

Reservoirs are often operated to meet two or more objectives that sometimes may conflict. An example of this conflict is to keep storage low enough to maintain spare capacity for flood protection, but also to keep it high enough to maintain reliability of water / hydropower supply. Optimising the control decisions of reservoirs can provide a...

Conventional hydrological models use a deterministic approach. One could think of it like a black box, having an input, parameters, relations and an output. The parameters are calibrated by comparing the model output with observations of the system response (for example river runoff). When assessing the uncertainty in models the focus is often...

Vietnam these days is facing some major problems, such as a rapidly growing population which increase the pressure on the environment. Furthermore, fast urbanization which leads to concerns about urban planning and sufficient infrastructure. While the perception amongst the Vietnamese population prevails that the government is solely in charge...

Since the 1990th Sasol, a local Non-Governmental-Organization (NGO), builds sand storage dams, to mitigate the consequences of droughts in the semi-arid county of Kitui, Kenya. Sand storage dams are dams constructed in ephemeral rivers which increase the storage capacity of the riverbeds. The water stored by sand storage dams enables local...

Small leaks in water supply networks often remain undiscovered, resulting in large amounts of lost water. Moreover, small leaks can grow larger over time and may result in pipe bursts, having negative consequences for the surroundings. An automatic leak localization method is required to decrease the search area and hence localize small leaks...

The climate and the urban systems are changing, leading to new challenges and opportunities in the urban environment. Adaptation to these challenges is needed, using the vulnerability assessment areas that are vulnerable can be identified. Vulnerability is the likelihood a system experiences harm and is the combination of both risks and...

This thesis presents a ComMod applications in Surabaya River basin, Indonesia. The ComMod approach was applied in parallel with the Negotiated Approach (NA). The NA is developed based on rich experiences in capacity building for IWRM, aiming to empower local communities in WRM at a high level. In this ComMod application, the NA provides a...

This thesis discusses the applicability of assimilation of artificial SMAP data into a quasi steady state hydrological model to improve soil moisture estimates. The model used for this research was SIMGRO and since no real SMAP data were available at the time of the research, artificial SMAP data were used. The ensemble Kalman filter was used to...

The overarching aim of this research project was to establish a sustainable urban water management design for Hoboken City to decrease vulnerability to extreme precipitation and improve urban quality. By carrying out a functional analysis of the area and the technical analysis of the water system, recommendations were made for soft and natural...

The Pampanga and Angat River Delta, located on the northern side of the Manila Bay in a large alluvial plain, are regularly confronted with worsening fluvial and tidal floods. Subsidence rates up to 4.5 cm/year due to excessive groundwater extraction are the main cause of the worsening floods. Five measures are presented to reduce the floods: -...

Decision Support Systems (DSSs) that are used nowadays by water managers often predict states that do not correspond with the observed states. This is caused by changing parameters in the real systems, while the parameters used in the current DSSs are kept at a fixed level or follow a temporal pattern that does not always represents reality....

As a result of expected increase of rainfall intensities due to climate change, there is an increasing demand for reliable flood damage models for urban areas. Most existing models focus on damage prediction using stage-damage curves, which mainly apply to fluvial or coastal floods on a regional scale. Pluvial flood- ing, however, often takes...

The use of global precipitation datasets such as TRMM, WFD etc. for data scarce regions is gaining popularity since they provide forcing input for hydrological models. They make up for the lack of ground based data or the poor quality of whatever is available in many parts of the world. Using these datasets would be perfect if they were free of...
