Accurate weather forecasting plays an important role in predicting precipitation events. With the warming climate the precipitable water vapour in the atmospheric is increasing. Since weather parameters as precipitable water vapor have a high spatial variability, interpolation of water vapor data over an area of hundreds of kilometer does not...

Gathering accurate and reliable precipitation data is essential in developing countries, since it applied to a wide range of applications, from improving short term weather models to global climate change research. The most common way of acquiring rainfall measurements is the rain gauge. However, this traditional measurement equipment requires...

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...

Europe is a continent with diverse climatic conditions. The dominant climates are the Oceanic, the Mediterranean and the Continental ones. The western part of Europe has an oceanic climate, southern Europe has a Mediterranean climate and eastern Europe has a continental climate. Because of such heterogeneities, a vast range of extreme climatic...

Water scarcity has been a growing problem for many places around the world as water usage has been increasing with double the rate of population growth in the twentieth century. As agriculture accounts for 70 percent of global freshwater withdrawals, fresh water availability will thus face even greater stress (World Bank, 2013). Sustainable...

This study aims to characterize the variation in stomatal conductance and leaf water potential of corn plant in height over time on a diurnal time-scale and on a seasonal time-scale, under well-watered and water stressed conditions.<br/>An additional objective was the development of a protocol for plant-water relation measurements in radar...

A large part of the world population lives in deltas or in the vicinity of a river which provides many advantages, such as access to transportation, food and drinking water. Inundating floodplains are a natural and recurring phenomenon which is for instance a way to irrigate soils, but drawbacks occur when people or infrastructure are harmed by ...

Plastic debris in water systems form a major problem for our ecosystem because it is extremely persistent in the environment and the global plastic production is still increasing without adequate measures to prevent pollution. Apart from the importance of reducing the amount of plastic entering the ocean, clearing the rivers from debris is...

Fog harvesting is a sustainable drinking water solution for arid climates. Previous studies have developed an analytical model to predict the fog water collection efficiency as a product of aerodynamic and deposition efficiency as independent factors. In this study, we tested the assumption that deposition efficiency stays unchanged when the...

Water management is becoming increasingly important in the world. Population growth, climate change, and increasing demands placed on infrastructure call for a smart and standardized approach. The data needs to stay at the source and sharing information in a more efficient way is becoming increasingly important. To make this possible in the...

Polder areas as typical in the Netherlands require real time control on the water levels. Efficient pumping is a subject with increasing interest due to a required use of 20% green energy by 2020 set by the government. In 2010, the energy requirements already exceeded 175 GWh per year. For optimal control, water level predictions are important....

The role of water storages at greenhouses will change in the future due to three trends in climate change, upscaling of greenhouses and changes in regulations. These three trends force the local water authority and the greenhouse sector to anticipate on future problems. First step in this process is to understand the hydrological response of...
