In this article, we provide strong evidence for moisture feedback playing an important part in China’s precipitation. Due to the fact that China’s water scarcity has a huge impact on the economy and society, it is not only a problem for the country itself but could become a problem for the whole world in the near future. Most research in the...

This report focuses on the flooding problems in the Lower Moshi area, Tanzania. These floods are the result of the extremely large catchment of the Kilimanjaro region in combination with large peaks in precipitation during the short and the long rainy seasons. The river bordering the area of interest cannot handle these quantities of water which...

Boiler feedwater and steam have to be of high purity, because of the susceptibility of the steam-water cycle to corrosion. Organic contaminants break down in boilers by hydrothermolysis, leading to the formation of organic acid anions, which are suspected to cause corrosion of steam-water cycle components. The impact and behavior of organic...

Currently available land and water use maps don’t meet the needs of hydrologists and water managers in many cases, particularly in developing countries. Existing maps often lack the resolution and detail required by hydrological models, and those that do meet requirements are limited in spatial coverage. The research presented in this report...

Consider an estuary which is described by two governing equations for two variables, the water level 'zeta' and the velocity 'u'. Having two governing equations (Saint-Venant, 1871) is sufficient to perform time integration. The problem statement for a finite domain contains two boundary conditions and an initial condition. However, if the...

Iquique is an important city in the northern of Chile. For the coast of Iquique a seismic gap with a return period of 111 ± 33 years is present. Since the last big event in 1877 only 20 % of the accumulated seismic slip is released. The configuration of Iquique is such that a large future earthquake and subsequent tsunami would generate a...

Three dimensional city models are presently being used in many sectors. The potentiality of three dimensional data has been exploited by many researchers and applications. It has been realized that 3D data are not only for visualization or navigation but to solve more complex problem like urban planning, disaster management, facility management...

About 95-97% of all deaths and a significant part of the economic losses caused by floods occur in developing countries. Despite the resources spent on different measures, flood management arrangements in developing countries are still unable to deliver satisfactory results. The objective of this thesis is ‘to maximize land-use benefits and...

In order to achieve the Millennium development goals of the UN, different initiatives have been established worldwide. One of these initiatives has been developed in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. Through the program Agua para Todos – Agua para Siempre different institutions work together, the common goal being to provide safe drinking water and...

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a proven technology in water treatment nowadays. However, fouling remains a major challenge in the operation of UF, especially in regard to colloidal NOM fouling. In general, a number of colloidal NOM fouling mechanisms may occur, such as adsorption, gel formation. Colloidal NOM fouling is influenced by multivalent...

The Thesis entitled “Filterability and Sludge Concentration in Membrane Bioreactors” aims at explaining the relation between Mixed Liquid Suspended Solids (MLSS) concentration, the amount of solids in the wastewater being treated, also designated as sludge, and filterability, being the ability of the sludge to be filtrated through a membrane, in...

Van Dieren, M.R. (author)
Ongoing urbanisation and the subsequent extensive use of the urban water system can lead to degradation of its surface water quality. In the Netherlands, urban water bodies often suffer from the manifestations of eutrophication due to (historically) high nutrient loadings. This research focused on the enhancement of surface water quality of semi...

Since the end of the last century, polders in the Netherlands have suffered from inundation due to heavy rainfall. Inundation occurrences in 1998 have led to large economic losses, especially in polders with a fast rainfall runoff process due to the high percentage of land occupied by greenhouses. This thesis focuses on water system assessments,...

Areas outside the primary flood defenses, here called unembanked areas have a special status in the Dutch water safety policy. Whereas, primary flood defenses have to fulfill to legal standards and a functional manager is appointed for construction, maintenance and management. For unembanked areas this situation is different; some provinces have...

Stive, P.M. (author)
This research focuses on polder-belt canal systems. More is demanded from these systems every day. Man induced changes, like increasing population density and increasing land value on one hand and climate change in the form of longer dry spells and more extreme precipitation events on the other hand are the main sources. The operation of the...

Introduction Low Impact Development (LID) is an alternative approach in managing stormwater runoff. Its main philosophy is to replicate the pre-development hydrological properties of water catchment. It seeks to first infiltrate, filter, store and retaining the surface runoff near to its source before draining it to downstream. Some of the...

Delta regions worldwide have to cope with increasing pressure on land use and the consequences of climate change and rising sea-levels. Usual methods and solutions are no longer satisfactory for future challenges of flood protection, sustainable energy, and freshwater supply. Consequently, truly innovative approaches and technologies have to be...

IJsselmonde is an island of about 16,000 ha, located in the Netherlands in the delta of the Rhine and Meuse rivers. Following the construction of drainage works some 1000 years ago, the peat soil started to shrink and oxidize, expensive dykes and drainage works became necessary, and conditions for agriculture deteriorated. The island was flooded...
