Nowcasting high-intensity precipitation is crucial for emergency services and municipalities when making weather-dependent decisions. This research implements and trains a deep generative model for nowcasting using a cleaned precipitation radar composite dataset spanning 15 years, with a 5-minute temporal and 1 km spatial resolution.<br/><br/>We...

The city of Amsterdam faces the challenge of monitoring and assessing 200 kilometers of historic quay walls, of which much is deemed to be in poor condition. A key monitoring technique used is photogrammetry resulting in deformation testing. The fundamental data source forming the basis of this deformation analysis is a collection of overlapping...

The railway industry is constantly growing to meet the demand of society for stable, accessible and sustainable transportation. With this growth, the need for the railway to be reliable increases, requiring frequent surveying and maintenance. Fugro's RILA (Rail Infrastructure aLignment Acquisition) mobile mapping system contributes by making the...

During a solar eclipse, sunlight incident on the Earth is reduced due to the (partial) shadow of the Moon. Atmospheric trace gas concentrations which are influenced by the amount of available sunlight, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>), may be affected due to the disrupted photolysis processes. Large-scale observations of the increased...

Mixed-phase clouds, which have a significant impact on the global climate, are complex systems where liquid water and various types of ice particles coexist at temperatures below the freezing point. A key process in mixed-phase clouds is riming which alters microphysical and scattering properties of ice particles. Cloud radar is a powerful...

Uncertainty in the radiative forcing from anthropogenic activities since the Industrial Revolution is dominated by how clouds respond to aerosol. Climate projections are limited by this uncertainty. The cloud response to aerosol is influenced by the meteorological conditions of the atmosphere wherein the cloud is suspended. Understanding the...

Over the years, InSAR has become an indispensable tool in the study of ground deformation, including volcanic deformation, and this continues to be the case in times of improved technology. Since the volcanoes on the Caribbean islands of Saba and St. Eustatius are active, the implementation of an InSAR-based monitoring system is crucial to...

In September 2022, Greenland experienced an extraordinary late-season melt event, characterized by temperatures exceeding the melting point at Summit Station for the first time on record and surface melt appearing across one-third of the ice-sheet. This thesis investigates extreme melt events at the Summit in Greenland, focusing on the...

Semantic segmentation, a task vital in the creation of 3D point cloud models for buildings, is aimed at assigning meaning to individual points. However, due to the vast volume of unstructured point cloud data, precise semantic segmentation remains challenging. Significant progress has been observed in recent years with the application of deep...

The 3D point cloud representation of building holds significant importance in developing a comprehensive smart city model. However, due to the substantial volume of point cloud data and its inherently unstructured nature, accomplishing semantic segmentation of the point cloud poses a formidable challenge. Recent years have witnessed substantial...

Unequal deformation of the soil can cause deformation or damage to buildings, like tilted facades or cracks in walls. This research investigates how deformation of a building can be analyzed using Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR) data. Cyclomedia captures LiDAR data yearly in the Netherlands making it possible to analyze either one or...

Over the period 1901-2012, the average global sea surface temperature has increased by 0.89 °C due to climate change and it is expected to increase consistent with global warming. As a consequence, marine ecosystems have become more susceptible to change in species and ocean chemistry. Due to the increase in sea surface temperature, the ocean pH...

This study integrates strategic decisions and operational control systems in autonomous shipping. By providing ships with situational information and adding a virtual operator, we show that vessels can make informed choices regarding their route and engine settings. To demonstrate this integration, we developed new components that were tested in...

Coastal areas are appealing for human beings and are the most populated areas of the world. Therefore, coastal processes have large impacts on economy and on millions of people's lives. Not only processes such as erosion, extreme events, and flood events must be understood and monitored, but the uncertainty given by the rapid climate change on...

The Alps are experiencing a gradual reduction in snow cover due to rising temperatures, impacting the landscape and dependent ecosystems. While several models have been developed to study snow cover in the region, there is a lack of visual representations. This research employs a Conditional Generative Adversarial Network (cGAN) to generate a...

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is an ice sheet situated on the island of Greenland. It has a surface area of about 1.74 million km² and contains a volume of ice equivalent to 7.4 m of global mean sea level rise. The GrIS is vulnerable to climate disruptions such as anthropogenic climate change. As a result of increased greenhouse gas emissions,...

Atmospheric rivers transport 90% of all atmospheric moisture in the mid-to-high latitudes, while covering only 10% of the Earth’s surface at any given time. Atmospheric rivers occur infrequently, and atmospheric river frequency in the polar areas is especially low, but they can have a large impact on the cryosphere when they make landfall. They...

Ocean currents play a crucial role in many scientific and industrial applications. Contemporary measurement techniques are limited in spatial coverage or spatial resolution. This study presents a proof-of-concept for a new measurement principle that merges optical satellite imagery of Kelvin wakes with data from the Automatic Identification...

There are multiple types of objects distributed along the rail trackside to support the operation of railroads. Damage to those objects will result in delay and cancellation of trains. Therefore, the maintenance of the objects is important to ensure the safety of railway operations, and the key to maintenance is to know the accurate position of...

Traditionally, archaeological investigations, especially archaeological remains detection, mostly depend on human observation. In order to find the objects in large areas, a lot of fieldwork has to be done and it takes a long time for archaeologists to travel around. Nowadays, the development of LIDAR provides accurate 3D geometric information,...
