Besides global warming, climate change is expected to result in (among others) an increased number of extreme precipitation events and a rising sea level. In the future, this can be the cause for an increased number of high river discharge events in combination with high water levels on the North Sea, which goes hand in hand with an increased...

Monitoring structural behavior of earth structures during construction and in service is a common practice done for safety reasons, consolidation control and maintenance needs. Several are the techniques available for measuring displacements, water pressures and total stresses, not only in these geotechnical structures but also at their...

Over the past decade, research on the impacts of climate change on immovable cultural heritage (ICH) in the polar regions (Arctic and Antarctica) has slowly increased. This article offers a systematic review and synthesis of the publications about climate change impacts on the diverse ICH and climate change adaptation in the polar regions....

Buildings are an important part of society's environmental impacts, both in the construction and in the use phase. As the energy performance of buildings improve, construction materials become more important as a cause of environmental impact. Less attention has been given to those materials. We explore, as an alternative for conventional...

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management looks into the possibility of raising the awareness of Dutch citizens as policy measure to encourage travellers to travel in a more conscious and more climate-friendly manner. Scientific literature, however, shows contradictory results on the effectiveness of this measure. An ongoing academic...

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...

With the Urban Heat Island Effect on the rise and 66% of the global population expected to live in the cities by 2050, new ways of building for this urban growth need to be researched. In this report the cooling effects of green and water structures on urban landscapes are examined. To realize this, we opted to recreate a 3D model of the chosen...

Climate change is an omnipresent issue in politics, industry, science, and society. Scientist knew of its existence for several decades, but only recently has the perception of it shifted from a solely environmental problem to a matter of international security. Climate change is thought to impact the likelihood of extreme weather events,...

The Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) is an important component of the climate system and is a key contributor to future sea level rise, as it is storing frozen water that would raise sea levels by 7.4 m should it all melt (Bamber et al., 2018). Of particular concern is the amount of global warming we are facing now and in the future, as it is becoming...

A planetary sunshade is a large, reflecting disk built to shield the Earth from a small fraction of solar irradiance, partly compensating global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions. As a specific form of solar geoengineering, the sunshade is an emergency solution that would be implemented to prevent catastrophic climate change, while...

Drastic oil palm plantation expansion has left Kalimantan low on lowland rainforest. Deforestation is accompanied by environmental consequences of establishing and operating a monoculture, as well as effects on biodiversity. Sacrificing spatial complexity comes at the costs of (microclimate) cooling potential, soil erosion, nutrient seepage,...

Climate is changing. It is widely accepted that irrespective of the emission reductions efforts, adaptation to the already committed climate change is a must in the coming decades. Flooding is one of the most devastating climate-induced hazards, calling for adaptation across scales: from government-led adaptation (e.g. dikes), to personal...

Humanity faces the unprecedented global challenge of climate change. The sheer complexity and uncertainty of this problem renders mere intuitive reasoning insufficient. To aid global climate negotiations, Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) are used to analyze the interplay between climate and the economy. More specifically, IAMs account for how...

The widespread concerns about climate change, as well as the major enabling factors for the transition that are required to guarantee its control, necessitate research and a tool that can provide insight into the future of copper mining.The world's copper supply is primarily concentrated in a few producing locations: Chile, Peru, Democratic...

We all know the possible consequences of global warming, rising temperatures, flooded cities and destroyed ecosystems. One of the causes is the emission of gases, predominantly CO2, which is increased by the growing E-commerce market. E-commerce companies rely on recommender systems to stimulate users to purchase products. We are convinced that...

Background:<br/>Climate change is affecting Uganda through the worsening floods that happen on a yearly basis. These disasters are claiming the lives and livelihoods of local communities, which lead to more challenges such as economic consequences and forced migration. Immediately after hazards like floods strike, local communities are always...

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 Geul river, a tributary of the Meuse located in the south Netherlands, Belgium, and part of Germany, is vulnerable to extreme hydrological events, such as floods, droughts, and erosion. There is evidence that these conditions are exacerbated by land use and climate changes. This thesis focuses on investigating the temporal variability and...

Ever since the reconstruction after World War II, it has become impossible to imagine our streets without the automobile. A car-centred public space has become the status quo, while this appears to have far-reaching consequences for both climate and society. Herefore, the transition toward more people-centric cities is brought into full swing....
