Small to medium-sized man-made freshwater reservoir are a reliable source for drinking water supply, hydropower generation and irrigation purposes worldwide. However, water volumes in these reservoirs can be significantly affected by prolonged droughts, resulting in severe impacts on society (Kozacek, 2014; Mahr, 2018). To mitigate the impact of...

This thesis aims to assess the applicability of the CRCTool for evaluating the effectiveness of NBS for mitigating tropical urban floods in the city center of Paramaribo. Assumptions related to urban flood mitigation were tested, a sensitivity analysis for the most sensitive parameters was performed, and the hydrological behaviour of groundwater...

Hoogelander, Vincent (author)
In this thesis, an easily reproducible modeling approach was developed for assessing the climate change impact on streamflow. This approach was tested by using it to assess the impact of climate change on streamflow in 5 different contrasting catchments across the United States. Many studies show that climate change is expected to influence...

Under the current climate change projections, droughts and extreme rainfall events are becoming more common and intense. During sustained droughts, soil cracks can develop in the topsoil of a dike. These soil cracks can enhance the infiltration and drainage of the dike, affecting the dike stability. This study’s main objective is to better...

Regional climate model (RCMs) simulations are used in hydrological (climate-change) impact assessment studies. However, RCMs exhibit noticeable deviation from observation, and can show large variation in ensemble projections (biases). The objective of this study is twofold, first to assess the robustness of two high-skill bias-correction methods...

The future hydrological response of a river system is often predicted using hydrological models that are calibrated on past observations. By using static model parameters it is assumed that hydrological systems do not change in time. For long-term predictions, this is in clear contrast with the notion that vegetation actively adapts its root...

Vonk, Martin (author)
Transfer function noise (TFN) modelling is a form of time series analysis which regularly uses the recharge as a stress to explain the groundwater table fluctuations. Often the recharge flux is estimated as a linear combination of the precipitation and the (potential) evaporation. However, this is a simplification of the actual hydrological...

Large parts of the world rely on rainfed agriculture for their food security. In Africa, 90% of the agricultural yields rely only on precipitation for irrigation purposes and approximately 80% of the population’s livelihood is highly dependent on its food production. Parts of Ghana are prone to droughts and flood events due to increasing...

Due to climate change, temperatures are rising worldwide resulting in sea level rise, higher evaporation and possible changes in precipitation patterns. These effects of climate change influence salt intrusion, particularly by affecting the freshwater supply. In The Gambia also a planned hydropower dam and possibly future irrigation development...

The construction of drinking-water reservoirs in previously free-flowing river basins introduces challenges in operational water management, especially in data scarce environments. Often resulting in effectively un- gauged basins. In order to be able to estimate the expected increase in water supply, the hydrology of the ungauged sub-basins must...

Rapid urbanization has altered the natural hydrological cycle of the Tub Ma catchment, inducing major floods after heavy rainfall events. For that reason, structural mitigation measures were built, including floodwalls along the channel and a pumping station at the outlet. However, no operational rules were available for operating the river...

Globally, water demand is rising and resources are diminishing. In the context of climate change and a growing world population, a further increase in water scarcity seems inevitable. Aiming towards a sustainable future, water should be used as efficiently as possible by minimizing water losses, which can be higher than 50% in some drinking...

The root zone storage capacity is a critical determinant in hydrology, playing a major role in the partitioning of precipitation into evaporation and runoff. Besides, it is an important parameter in climatological and hydrological models. Understanding of the root zone storage capacity and its major determining processes is therefore fundamental...

In 2008 the Red Cross Red Crescent (RCRC) started with Forecast-based Financing pilots to improve existing Early-Warning Early Action systems. Forecast-based financing is a new methodology to prepare, deliver and respond in a more effective and efficient manner, based on hazard forecasts. Actions are triggered when a forecast exceeds a danger...

Worldwide landslides cause a great amount of damage, as is also the case in Rwanda. Here more and more slopes fail as anthropogenic activities such as building, farming, or deforestation, are moved to marginal lands such as hillslopes. To investigate the hydrological response of typical hillslopes in North Western Rwanda five landslides are...
