Personal weather station (PWS) networks have the potential to supply precipitation data at high spatial and temporal resolution for urban hydrological modeling. Past research has shown promising results on the quality of PWS data, for example from Netatmo gauges, but studies on other PWS brands are limited. This thesis assesses the quality of...

Experiments using fiber-optical set-ups for distributed temperature sensing (DTS) were conducted in the LIAISE (Land surface Interactions with the Atmosphere over the Iberian Semi-arid Environment) field campaign during 15-30 July 2021 in the north-east of Spain. Three DTS set-ups were installed to measure temperature profiles along varying...

Potthoff, Eva (author)
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...

Hydrological models are often used to evaluate future changes in streamflow. Despite the strong aware- ness of non-stationarity in hydrological system characteristics, model parameters are often assumed stationary and obtained through calibration on past conditions. The representation of system change in hydrological models is challenging, as a...

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...

Protecting forests from agricultural expansion and wildfires while the world population is growing and the climate is warming remains one of the biggest challenges humanity currently faces. While global modelling and regional observation based studies have found significant effects from deforestation on precipitation, leading mostly to drying...

Torrential rain from tropical cyclones can have a devastating impact, causing loss of life and billions in damages. To better understand the risk faced by coastal communities, it is important to estimate how often a tropical cyclone could occur and how much rainfall it will produce. One way to do this is by analyzing past storms and building...

The assessment of potential evaporation or reference combined evaporation and transpiration is among the most important components for many hydro-climatic applications such as irrigation design and management, water balance assessment studies, and assessment of aridity classification indices. Aridity classification indices such as UNEP,...

The current intensification of the hydrologic cycle, in combination with expanding settlements in flood prone areas, makes an increasing share of the global population exposed to flood risks. Many parts of the world are, however, still lacking the data needed for flood risk management and risk reduction. The recent development of information and...

Bioswales contribute to climate resilience, as they positively impact the urban water infrastructure by improving the water balance and water quality. However, current bioretention design ignores the facts that different designs in different soils and climatic locations produce different performance results.<br/>The effect of polder conditions...

Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the most vulnerable regions in the world to climate change. This is largely driven by the dependence on rain fed agriculture for food production. At the same time African climate observational networks have been in decline since the 1990s. A new kind of rainfall sensor (the intervalometer), which counts the arrival...

Repeat-pass acquisitions with coherent Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems, preserving both phase and amplitude, are more readily available than ever (Bruzzone, 2016). Phase measurements from SAR systems have seen widespread use in the Interferometric Synthetic Aperture (InSAR) technique to measure deformations and elevations since the late...

Our climate is changing. In the Netherlands, higher rainfall intensities and longer periods of drought are expected in the coming years. Urban environments have to be adapted in order to maintain (or improve) the living standards that we have set for today. Models of the urban drainage system play a vital role in the identification of flood...

Nowcasting, synonymous for short term (0-6h) forecasting of precipitation with high detail in terms of location, timing and intensity, is a dynamic field of research in weather forecasting that is relevant in mitigating the impact of severe weather events. Along with the development of remote sensing instruments, the first methods that were...
