Google Location History Timeline could be used in the future to track mobile devices of users with a Google account. The Department of Forensic Digital Technology in the Netherlands Forensic Institute might consider using it as available data for evidence in its investigations. A part of this research is to assess the accuracy of the locations...

Van Tiggelen, M. (author)
In this report, a least-squares approach is described for retrieving the 3D structure of the electron concentration in the Earth’s upper ionosphere and plasmasphere, using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data-sets from Low-Earth-Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Due to the lack of horizontal radio wave geometries, the method uses assumptions...

Atmospheric particulate matter (aerosols), originating from both natural and anthropogenic sources, is affecting the regional and global climate through direct, indirect, and semi-direct effects on the radiative energy budget of the Earth-atmosphere system. In order to quantify these effects it is necessary to determine the load of aerosol...

Today’s climate warming is unequivocal. Evidence from observations and satellite records show that Arctic Ocean is losing its summer sea ice cover with a rapid pace and is dominated by young and thinner ice. The ice loss has already caused heating of the overlying atmosphere. At the same time, the Greenland ice sheet (GIS) surface mass balance...

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...

The Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) onboard the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) has provided measurements of vegetation structure and together with upcoming follow-up missions such as ICESat-2, vegetation changes may be studied globally in the near future. In this research project, ICESat’s individual ability to...

Laser scanning technique is an upcoming technique for many engineering purposes. Terrestrial laser scanners have become widely accessible for companies, universities and research centres in the last decade. A green-wavelength terrestrial laser scanning device is available for scan projects at the Delft University of Technology. Green-wavelength...

The traditional approach to studying and characterizing exposed, sedimentary, or layered, rock outcrops has depended on both the experience of the geologist involved and on the accessibility of the rock surfaces themselves. Morphological characterization of an outcrop, such as its layered rock orientation and thicknesses, are features that can...

Air pollution has become one of the most serious problems societies worldwide are facing, thus there is an emergent need for air quality monitoring to quantify pollution level and supervise pollution sources. One of the main pollutants, nitrogen dioxide, mostly comes from human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels, vehicle exhaust and...

Double degree of Master of Science in Applied Geophysics at Delft University of Technology, ETH Zürich and RWTH Aachen University. - In 2004, Rijkswaterstaat provided geopotential differences between the benchmarks of the Normaal Amsterdams Peil (NAP) network to the Bundesamt für Kartographie und Geodäsie (BKG) for the realization of the...

Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is one of the nitrogen oxides (NOx) pollutants. Not only the NO2 itself is toxic to human health, but also the precursors of a number of hazardous secondary air pollutants, such as nitric acid, tropospheric ozone and nitrate component of particulate matters. Besides, NO2 is also an essential substances involving in ozone...

Thor, R. (author)
The outermost strong part of a planet is called the lithosphere. When loads, such as volcanoes, sediments, or intrusions, are applied to the lithosphere, it flexes. The amount of flexure is controlled by the flexural rigidity of the lithosphere. The elastic thickness Te is the thickness of an equivalent fully elastic spherical shell which flexes...

This study shows how historical topographic maps of the Zuid-Limburg mining area can be used to estimate the effects of mining activities on vertical ground surface motion. Coal has been the most important energy supplier for the Netherlands from the 19th century until the discovery of the large Slochteren gas field. After 1960, mining of coal...

Oost, R. (author)
Observations show that the Greenland ice sheet is losing mass with accelerating pace. Ice discharge trough outlet glaciers contributes approximately for half of the mass loss. However, the role of marine-terminating outlet glaciers on the response of the Greenland ice sheet to climate change is relatively unknown. In recent years, observations...

Hazardous whirlwind and tornado events are uncommon in the Netherlands. Though, the phenomenon is more frequently spotted over the last years, where significant damage is reported. In the United States, literature studies suggest that due to the increase of the Earth's surface temperature tornadoes will become more frequent and intense. This...

Many different Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are currently in orbit or are being deployed. Research on positioning techniques using these satellites is ongoing. The Curtin GNSS Research Centre has developed a software tool for further testing of these techniques. This thesis represents the testing done on the Curtin PPP-RTK User...

The current vegetation monitoring method of Rijkswaterstaat is a manual, time consuming and costly method and therefore only is performed once in six years. The vegetatielegger is a map, which shows the standard situation of the vegetation types that are allowed at any location in the river foreland area of the Netherlands. No rougher vegetation...

In this study the prediction of stratocumulus occurrence by the Large-Eddy Simulation model DALES was investigated. The performance of DALES was compared with that of the large-scale weather model RACMO. A method was developed which can consistently initialise the model by assimilation of observations in addition to large-scale weather model...
