Inland flooding along with its casualties is expected to increase. Climate change, urban expansion on floodplains, degraded ecosystems due to human interventions, lack of effective emergency flood risk management plans contribute to flood intensification and risk exposure. The heretofore flood mitigation practices seem to stop short of both...

Cities worldwide are faced with the challenge of adapting to the effects of climate change as well as acting against climate change, in order to keep the urban area liveable in the future. To facilitate climate adaptation and mitigation on a national level, the Netherlands drew up guidelines to induce the energy transition, as part of the ...

Continuous functioning of sewer systems and water distribution networks is crucial for liveability, public health and economic prosperity in urban areas. Progressive deterioration of these underground water infrastructures leads to an increased probability of failure. Maintenance is needed to ensure a desired level of functioning. For...

Rivers have long since exceeded their natural purpose of discharging excess water, by becoming subject to many practical applications demanded by present day society [61]. In order to comply withthis variety of needs and demands, the necessity for proper water management arises, which in turn requires data and knowledge of hydrological...

Water is cherished as treasure in traditional Chinese culture and expected to stay in harmony with human. However, the disharmony between water and urban life is looming especially after over thirty-year rapid urbanization in China with notable global climate change. Faced with water-related issues, e.g. flooding, water pollution, water shortage...

Current climate change characterized by increasing temperature has led to an increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme droughts that have more prolonged and profound ecohydrological and social impacts. By paying attention to the hydrological change before and after extreme drought and the patterns of drought recovery of ecohydrological...

Humans have always populated in the vicinity of river systems, where thesupply of water, nourishment and transportation is obtained from the river.However, inundation is a re-occurring problem and impact of floods are ex-pected to increase due to climate change. Accurate flood forecasting andearly warning is critical for disaster risk management...

This thesis aimed to elucidate the effects of dissolved organic matter on the applicability of electrocoagulation (EC) with iron electrodes for per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) removal from landfill leachate. The research methodology consisted of an experimental and a computational part. Galvanostatic EC experiments were...

Ephemeral rivers are common hydrological features in Southern Africa where periods of up to 9 months occur, without significant rainfall. These rivers are important in the Kitui region of Kenya, where water shortage impedes rural and urban development. The seasonal rivers of Kitui provide suitable water for domestic, livestock and agricultural...

Biofouling and scaling are ongoing challenges for reverse osmosis (RO) membranes application in wastewater reclamation. Adequate RO feed pretreatment is necessary for biofouling and scaling control. The objective of this thesis was evaluated the effectiveness of ion exchange treatment with weak acid cation (WAC) and strong base anion (SBA)...

Chennai, one of the largest cities in India, has been suffering from ‘’too little, too much and too polluted’’ water. As a response, in 2002, the local government took a step forward at the policy level by mandating the provision of rainwater water harvesting structure for every building. This system contributes to take advantage of the excess...

In this study, an unsupervised classification approach is used to investigate and characterize the spatial and temporal variability of MetOp-A ASCAT backscatter (σ◦) and the TUW SMR vegetation parameters across mainland France between 2007 and 2017. Currently, soil moisture data is retrieved from ASCAT backscatter measurements using the TU Wien...

With climate change increasing its mark on all aspects of the hydrological cycle, societies all over the world living in flood-prone areas are increasingly exposed to flood hazards. In many parts of the world, especially in less developed areas, societies lack knowledge and data to predict future flood events. By predicting a future flood event,...

For drinking water companies in Netherlands, the current conventional treatment technique may not be fully capable to cope with potential future problems resulted from climate change, salinization and social developments, such as population growth. Innovative technologies like reverse osmosis and more strict drinking water standards are expected...

For drinking water treatment applications, it is possible to predict the external porosity of an expanded bed of granular activated carbon in fluidized conditions. A new model has been developed with a 2% relative prediction error. <br/><br/>In order to supply sufficient and safe drinking water, water utilities use a treatment train consisting...

The Maurikse Wetering is a tributary of the Line river in the centre of the Netherlands. As the catchment is situated between and in close proximity to the larger Nederrijn and Waal rivers, intercatchment groundwater flow (IGF; groundwater flow crossing topographic divides) might have a significant influence on the water balance of the Maurikse...

Along river banks, on the transition zone between the river and see, tidal marshes can develop. The tidal marshes accommodate multiple plant and fish species. As a result of the stressful conditions in tidal marshes, unique intertidal ecology develops. However, due to the densifying of the river banks, tidal marshes are disappearing. <br/...

Flooding currently affects 100 million people on average per year globally, and the number is increasing. The performance of dikes under extreme conditions is crucial to societal flood protection. By deploying measurement instruments in and around the embankment, more accurate insights into the actual status of the dike can be achieved that can...
