Creeks are essential for salt marshes by conveying water and sediment through this geomorphic system. In this paper, we investigate the mechanisms that determine the residual sediment flux using measurements conducted in tidal creeks in salt marshes of the Yangtze Estuary. A main creek and a secondary creek were studied to explore whether the...

In modern society, critical operations, such as emergency response and public safety, rely on communication systems, in this context also referred to as mission critical systems. These systems must meet strict availability requirements, since any failure can lead to severe consequences, including loss of life. Traditionally, dedicated private...

The controller placement problem concerns the placement of controllers on Software-Defined Networks such that a pre-defined objective is optimized. In this thesis, we conduct research on the controller placement problem with network availability as the performance metric. Unlike other approximate evaluations, we compute the exact value with the...

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...

<br/>The NMCAs (National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies) of European countries have different cadastral survey accuracy standards (European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency, 2019). In order to meet these standards, the appropriate equipment and services should be determined. The augmentation service Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS),...

Until recently, tenders in Europe were awarded to wind farm developers based on the highest auction prices or the lowest subsidized bids. The wind industry has suggested that non-price-related criteria should be considered for tenders, like plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result of the sustainable tender criteria, greenhouse gas...

Future communication scenarios will require massive Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) by the use of multi-beam antenna systems. Maximizing the number of beams for a given antenna size is paramount given that the space allocated to the antenna is often limited. This work aims at evaluating the maximum number of beams by analyzing the SIR in...

Often, individual, communal, regional, or even national conflicts arise when water resources are shared and used. For equitable water-sharing strategies to be implemented, adequate collective action is required to allocate water – not limited to, but specifically in irrigation systems. In this research, we develop an Advanced Irrigation...

Girls and women in Uganda lack Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) information, and proper tools and facilities to manage their periods. There are different methods that girls in rural areas use to manage their menstruation such as cloths or pads. This project focuses on menstrual pads as they are hygienic, absorbent, and comfortable. Therefore,...

The Meuse is a river in West-Europe which rises at the Langres Plateau and flows from France through Belgium and the Netherlands. The river has always been an important shipping route, even though its navigability has been problematic in the Netherlands. To solve this problem seven weirs were constructed in the Dutch part of the Meuse. They are...

Deep-sea mining may be just a few years away and yet society is struggling to assess the positive aspects, such as increasing the supply of metals for battery production to fuel the green revolution, versus the potentially large environmental impacts. Mining of polymetallic (manganese) nodules from the deep ocean is likely to be the first...

The literature on irrigated agriculture is primarily concerned with irrigation techniques, irrigation water-use efficiency, and crop yields. How human and non-human agents co-shape(d) irrigation landscapes through their activities and how these actions impact long-term developments are less well studied. In this study, we aim to (1) explore...

While over the last century food systems have become more controlled, standard-ized and globalized, the plants and animals that form the basis of our food production still show seasonal fluctuation. The growth and reproductive cycles of these organisms follow seasonal weather patterns, including changes in rainfall, light exposure and...

An Advanced Irrigation-Related Agent-Based Model (AIRABM) of farmers' decision-making mechanism and feedback among farmers is developed. The model explores the interactions among human and non-human agents in the irrigation system. In this paper, we discuss harvest patterns as they result from more equal or unequal water distribution in the...

In sandy beach systems, the aeolian sediment transport can be governed by the vertical structure of the sediment layers at the bed surface. Here, data collected with a newly developed sand scraper is presented to determine high-resolution vertical grain size variability and how it is affected by marine and aeolian processes. Sediment samples...

Aircraft LRU (Line Replaceable Unit) MROs (Maintenance, Repair Organization) struggle to meet service levels. To stay competitive, literature describes two strategies; increasing contracted fleet size and not reaching projected repair turn around times. Besides these two strategies, literature does not describe the use of triple echelon order...

Climate change causes more and more extreme weather events such as increased frequency and intensity of heavy rainfall and at the same time longer periods of drought. Together with the growing population of urban areas these extreme weather events are putting a high pressure on water resources and infrastructures, as well as on water management...
