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...
