There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

Rain-fed agriculture is the main source of food in Ghana therefore improving quantitative rainfall estimates is essential for local farmers to predict crop growth using vegetation models. Rainfall dynamics in the tropics is an ongoing topic of research due to their complexity and sub-grid precipitation variability. At the same time, tropical...

The hydrolysis of sludge solids especially for difficultly degradable sludges such as WAS is not fully understood, yet. The first-order hydrolysis rate was shown to function well for most easily degradable sludges and soluble substrates. This description for substrate hydrolysis in the context of anaerobic digestion has the benefit of being very...

As the intensity and frequency of urban heat wave increases in Europe, evaporative cooling from watering pavements has been considered as a promising strategy to regulate urban temperature. The aim of this research is to include evaporative cooling modelling and enhance the surface temperature model SURF-TEMP, which is in development at the...

Over the last decade, a wide range of organic micropollutants (OMP) has been regularly detected in surface water, groundwater and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluent. These OMPs consist mainly of synthetic organic compounds (SOC) such as pharmaceuticals and pesticides. Although their concentrations in water bodies are usually low, they...

By combining satellite observations and model reanalysis winds, a global data set with higher temporal and spatial resolution ocean surface wind fields can be generated. These superior surface wind fields can have various applications, such as wind forcing of ocean models. The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) is responsible for...

Anticipatory action requires models that can accurately and reliably predict the impact of natural hazards. However, impact forecasts are often underestimated when consecutive hazards are not considered. In the Bicol region in the Philippines, typhoons trigger 90% of landslides, causing a lot of fatalities and damage to infrastructure and...

Empirical-statistical rainfall landslide initiation thresholds are popularly used for early warning systems to discriminate between the occurrence and non-occurrence of rainfall-induced landslides. However, the few studies that have derived landslide initiation thresholds for landslide-prone and data-scarce Rwanda rely solely on the limited in...

Groundwater is a major source of drinking water containing various elements out of which arsenic(As) is one of the toxic elements present. It is present in the form of arsenite, Conventionally, As(III) can be effectively removed if it is pre-oxidized to arsenate, As(V), thereby not involving any chemical dosage. There are various techniques to...

Oceanic CO2 capture technology can be used as a negative emission technology, or pre-treatment to reduce inorganic fouling (i.e., scaling) potential when further processing seawater. In this work CO2 from (synthetic) seawater was captured electrochemically via bipolar membrane electrodialysis. Although previous studies showed promising results...

Though slow sand filtration is one of the oldest and effective means of drinking water treatment, the mechanisms contributing to bacteria and viruses removal are not well understood. The lack of understanding of actual removal potential and different mechanisms occurring in the filter bed has limited the development of new filter design and...

The amount of suspended sediment spill released during dredging activities in the Fehmarnbelt strait is monitored along the excavated trench to prevent negative effects on local ecology. Stratification due to the interaction of saline water from the North Sea and fresh water from the Baltic Sea forces bi-directional flow of the layer above and...

Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) is an attractive medium for biogas production in an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) because of its high lipid content. Long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) accumulation is toxic and considered harmful for the biological performance within the reactor as they can be absorbed by biomass particles causing sludge...

Airport operations are highly dependent on safe weather conditions for their daily operations. Especially the visibility conditions are crucial. Low Visibility Procedures (LVP phase M, A, B and C) are defined at Schiphol Airport, resulting in capacity and runway use restrictions. These Low Visibility Pro­cedures are based on a post­processing...

Climate change, population growth and urbanisation contribute to an increasing demand for freshwater resources. In order to face this challenge, stormwater harvesting for aquifer storage and recovery has gained interest over the past decades. However, pollutants from various surfaces are transported with the runoff, posing a threat for receiving...

Hydrologic model performance evaluation depends on streamflow observations that are accurately positioned in the landscape. For distributed hydrologic models, this means that the streamflow observation need to be mapped to a location along the model streamflow network that represents the location of the observation station in a hydrologic system...

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...

The removal of iron from groundwater is essential to avoid aesthetic issues of the produced drinking water and to reduce maintenance cost of the system. The most applied iron removal method of oxidation and filtration produces large volumes of aqueous iron sludge of little value and the method is more likely to fail at high iron concentrations....

Clouds, specifically shallow clouds, are known as a major source of uncertainty in global climate models. Shallow clouds over the global oceans show different spatial patterns and organizations that may be influenced by climate change. Besides, the frequency of these patterns can change the climate feedback of marine clouds in the subtropics....

The validation of satellite retrieved soil moisture over a tropical region (Bago, Myanmar) has been conducted in this research. The downscaled soil moisture products of VanderSat using the Land Parameter Retrieval Model, were compared with an in-situ soil moisture network that operated between 2017 and 2018 and a newly placed network installed...
