All ecosystem services of river are governed by flow regime. The different components of flow regime like topography, geology, and climatic variation contribute to different ecological processes. These ecosystems provide a wide range of direct and indirect benefits to a human being. The ecosystem services such as hydropower, irrigation, drinking...

Underground thermal energy storage (UTES) is an efficient technique to fulfill the heating and cooling demand of buildings. UTES uses stable subsurface temperatures store and extract energy. This study covers two types of UTES systems: aquifer thermal energy systems (ATES) and borehole heat exchangers (BHE). UTES systems in the Netherlands have...

Hydrological regimes of alpine catchments are expected to be strongly influenced by climate change due to their dependence on snow dynamics. While seasonal changes have been studied extensively, studies on changes in the timing and magnitude of annual extremes remain rare. This study investigates the effects of climate change on runoff patterns...

The rootzone storage capacity (Sr) is a crucial part of the hydrological cycle. This storage provides water access for vegetation, in order to meet the atmospheric water demand through transpiration. The spatio-temporal variability of Sr is not well represented in current hydrological and climate models. The root zone...

Water challenges the livelihood of all living beings through its scarcity and its abundance. Due to climate change these extremes will intensify in the future. As mankind continues to cluster in economic centre points, housing areas as well as infrastructure increases. This situation forces the water to run off rather than infiltrate. Inundated...

In this report the hydrological response to multiyear droughts has been researched. Long-term droughts have resulted in an increase in tree die-off in affected areas. As the hydrological response is related to the vegetation in a catchment, it is of interest to find out whether catchment response regarding rainfall-runoff is different after a...

Due to global warming, temperatures are expected to rise and, with it, the increase in moisture holding capacity of the atmosphere. Changes in precipitation extremes with temperature are governed by the Clausius-Clapeyron relationship (CC), which states that precipitation increases 7% per degree of warming. While global models and observations...

In 2018 The Netherlands experienced the most severe drought since 1976. In response to this, the Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management established the 'Beleidstafel Droogte'. An external scientific committee took part in the Beleidstafel Droogte. One of their key recommendations was to introduce other drought indicators since the...

The objective of this study is find out whether maximum daily discharge of the Geul and Rur catchments can be forecast using machine learning (ML) methods, and if so, to what extent. In addition, these ML models are compared to a conceptual model to see which performs better. A second objective is to test whether soil moisture content (SMC) and...

Waterschap Brabantse Delta (WBD) has the intention to implement measures that enhance the baseflow. Baseflow consists of the groundwater flow and a small part of the interflow. During dry periods, streams are dependent on the baseflow. Enhancing the baseflow has a proper effect on the ecologically relevant quality of waters, and is therefore...

Most people of Malawi are dependent on rainfed agriculture for their livelihoods. This leaves them vulnerable to drought and changing rainfall patterns due to climate change. Over time, farmers have adopted local strategies and knowledge that help reducing the overall vulnerability to climate variability shocks. One other option to increase the...

The temperature of drinking water is an important parameter, affecting physical, chemical, biological and aesthetic properties of the water. Currently, measurements exceeding the legal limit of 25ᵒC at the tap are exceptional. However, there are reasons to believe that the number of exceedances will increase due to climate change and...

Snow in mountainous areas is of great importance for the water supply in many catchments. To get data on snow cover, ground station data is not enough and, in many catchments, not available. Therefore, satellite data is used to measure snow cover. In this thesis the MODIS daily snow cover dataset (MOD10A1) is used. These images are obstructed by...

The thermal recovery efficiency of High Temperature Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (HT-ATES) systems can be limited due to the effect of buoyancy flow of the injected hot water. This thesis has researched the application of a Multiple Partially Penetrating Wells (MPPWs) as a well design method to counteract the effect of buoyancy flow and...

In Indonesia, river pollution due to inorganic solid waste has become an enormous issue. This article explores the (re)production of relations between communities, river and inorganic solid waste in the Surabaya River Basin. It does so by analysing activities based on interviews, observations and measurements. It tries to explain the current...

The Philippines is a country located in the typhoon belt of the Pacific. Its location makes it typhoon prone and on average around 20 typhoons enter the country every year (Asian Disaster Reduction Center, 2008). This natural phenomenon can have disastrous effects and therefore, good preparedness is of special importance. Traditionally weather...

Flooding is globally one of the most damaging natural hazard. Flood risk will most likely increase in the near future due to increases in flood frequency attributed to climate change and growth in population and wealth in flood prone areas. This growth in wealth and population is increasingly considered as a major driver for the increase in...

Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) is a sustainable technology that provides thermal energy to buildings in temperate climates. The principle of ATES is to temporary store thermal energy in aquifers in a warm and cold well in order to use this thermal energy for heating and cooling in the next season. Because the available subsurface space is...

This thesis proposes an approach for tackling the problem of data-shortage in hydrological modelling. A hydrological model, in the context of this thesis, translates meteorological data to stream-flow of a river, for a specific catchment. A model incorporates parameters that describe the dynamics of a chosen model, in this case a FLEX (Flux...

In recent decades, sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) are more often seen as an addition to, or a replacement of, traditional piped urban drainage (UD) systems. Unfortunately, failures in SUDS still occur regularly, resulting in malfunctioning systems, water nuisance and high costs. To learn from past experiences and to ensure that SUDS...
