Localization is a problem of ’where we are’. Localization techniques help people understand their surrounding environment based on extracted position information in a geographic reference map. The development of global navigation satellite system (GNSS), light detection and ranging (LiDAR), computer vision (CV), etc., enables us to apply...

Severe wind gusts associated with mid-latitude convective storms contribute to an increasing amount of natural hazard related losses in Europe. Modifications of the atmosphere associated with anthropogenic climate change are projected to increase the frequency of favorable conditions for convective storms, and it is absolutely critical to...

The Netherlands has for long been witnessing problems due to subsidence. While urban infrastructure is mostly safeguarded from differential settlement by deep pile foundations, the same cannot be said about greenhouses. The greenhouses of the Netherlands has enabled the country to become the largest exporter of vegetables, second only to the...

Under urban sprawl the trend of new established complex structures has rapidly increased. In this context little importance has been given to maintenance, even if this represents an important step in combating and avoiding disasters and developing improved future structural designs. Over the last years low-cost Global Navigation Satellite System...

Coastal dunes habitats are in the transition zone of marine and terrestrial ecosystems and therefore have high biodiversity in terms of animal and vegetation species. These species provide important ecosystem services to the human kind. Due to the development and operation of Maasvlakte 2, an increase of nitrogen emission is expected in the...

This research attempts to investigate the coastal flow structure horizontally. The flow cases with different flow directions, including perpendicular and parallel to the shoreline directions, are selected by analyzing the New Europe Wind Atlas (NEWA) reanalysis data. After the cases are determined, high-resolution Weather Research and...

Semantic segmentation of aerial point clouds with high accuracy is significant for many geographical applications, but is not trivial since the data is massive and unstructured. In the past few years, deep learning approaches designed for 3D point cloud data have made great progress. Pointwise neural networks, such as PointNet and its extensions...

Remote retrieval of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) over the Earth’s surface is a critical component of monitoring the surface processes of our planet. NDVI is a widely used and useful indicator of vegetation health and quantity ­ however its retrieval using satellite data is hindered by the frequent presence of clouds in the Earth...

The Antarctic ice sheet is a complex system highly influenced by global and local processes and characteristics including a varying bedrock elevation and structure of the solid Earth and a changing climate. Sea level rise has a high impact on society and the improvement of forecasts are vital to generate both adaptation and mitigation strategies...

Due to increasing global population and increasing food demand, crop yield needs to be improved to forestall potential food shortages. To achieve optimal crop yield, irrigation is applied to replace water losses due to evapotranspiration (ET). Information on ET should be applied to optimize water allocations and water use. In this study, the...

A variety of statistical methods are available to detect sudden changes, or breakpoints, in time series when used as multi-temporal change detection technique. However, these methods are unreliable in the presence of noise. Neural nets might detect breakpoints better. These deep learning models are able to generalize and optimize well, even in...

The TU-Wien developed a soil moisture retrieval algorithm that uses the incidence angle dependence of backscatter to obtain soil moisture estimates (Wagner et al., 1999). The core of this algorithm is a second order Taylor expansion with which the backscatter is normalized at a reference angle. Studies have shown that the first and second order...

Under urban sprawl the trend of new established complex structures has rapidly increased. In this context maintenance plays a major role and monitoring of such structures represents a first important step in combating disasters. Over the last years low-cost Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) equipment has faced rapid and important...

Satellite altimetry is an important technology used to measure sea level with high spatial and temporal resolution. Sentinel-3, a Copernicus satellite mission, offers three types of variables captured simultaneously for the first time; sea level (SSH), sea surface temperature (SST) and ocean colour (OC) variables. Sea level is measured with SAR...

We use ground and space geodetic data to study surface deformation and gravity change at Kīlauea volcano from January to September 2015. This period includes an episode of heightened activity in May 2015, which we refer to as ’the May 2015 event’. The data set consists of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), tilt, visual and seismic time...

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) has been developed in recent several decades, which provides a new technique for timing, positioning and navigation. And GNSS positioning is a basic service to us, both in daily life and scientific research. During high-precise positioning, ambiguity resolution is a key factor that has a huge influence...

Understanding the river dynamics is very important to be able to make use of all river functions and to protect ourselves against floods. Hydrodynamic models are used to predict river behaviour and one of the input parameters is the river geometry. In-situ measuring of river geometry can be very expensive and time consuming. Remote sensing...

The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model is used to investigate the horizontal spatial resolution sensitivity by simulating the 1953 Dutch storm, the grid sizes are 27, 9, 3, 1, 0.5 km from domain 1 to domain 5 respectively. Overall, the the probability density functions of wind speed of all time do not show higher resolution...

Europe is a continent with diverse climatic conditions. The dominant climates are the Oceanic, the Mediterranean and the Continental ones. The western part of Europe has an oceanic climate, southern Europe has a Mediterranean climate and eastern Europe has a continental climate. Because of such heterogeneities, a vast range of extreme climatic...

Almost four million people in the Netherlands who live below sea level are protected by 17000 km of dikes against the water. Since deformation can be an indicator of a developing failure mechanism, information about this parameter can help authorities to detect weak spots in the dutch water defense structures. <br/>In this research, Radar...
