The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is an ice sheet situated on the island of Greenland. It has a surface area of about 1.74 million km² and contains a volume of ice equivalent to 7.4 m of global mean sea level rise. The GrIS is vulnerable to climate disruptions such as anthropogenic climate change. As a result of increased greenhouse gas emissions,...

The validity of current prediction methods for the formation of contrails from modern turbofan engines is investigated. A modelling framework has been developed for estimating the impact of engine configurations on contrail formation by analyzing the physics of the mixing between core and bypass flow. Within this framework, Engine Performance...

This contribution presents an assessment at a regional (island) scale of the beach erosion due to storm events under Climate Change. The approach adopted to assess beach erosion at the island scale consisted of three modules. First, the location, dimensions and other attributes of the Cypriot beaches were recorded on the basis of widely...

Offshore wind electricity generation will play a key role in the transition to a sustainable energy sector. In 2020, the European Commission presented their Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy which includes 300 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2050 (European Commission, 2020). This research focusses on the steel mass development of OWT structural...

Hydrological regimes of alpine catchments are expected to be strongly influenced by climate change due to their dependence on snow dynamics. While seasonal changes have been studied extensively, studies on changes in the timing and magnitude of annual extremes remain rare. This study investigates the effects of climate change on runoff patterns...

As a low-lying city, Shanghai faces threats from typhoon and spring tide under the condition of climate change and land subsidence. With high water level at the toe, the sea embankment is likely to be overtopped and breached, finally resulting in inundation inland.  The objective of this research is to study climate change...

European agriculture and water policies require accurate information on climate change impacts on available water resources. Water accounting, that is a standardized documentation of data on water resources, is a useful tool to provide this information. Pan-European data on climate impacts do not recognize local anthropogenic interventions in...

Sellés Valls, Susana (author)
In spite of the major and broad consequences of adverse climate change impacts on ports in general, relatively little and relevant detailed research is made available within public domain. Several studies have addressed climate impacts on transportation infrastructure however very few focus on ports and supply chain. Ports are considered...

Surface water salinization in deltaic areas due to saline groundwater exfiltration is an important issue. Saline surface water will not be appropriate for drinking water production, agricultural and industrial use, and therefore, freshwater diverted from rivers is used for flushing the canals and ditches in coastal areas. The effects of climate...

Hu, Y. (author)
Climate change due to increasing greenhouse gas emissions is likely to alter the hydrological cycle resulting in large impacts on water resources worldwide. Mountain regions are important sources of freshwater for the entire globe, but their role in global water resources could be significantly altered by climate change. Mountains are expected...

Hoes, O.A.C. (author)
The subject of this dissertation is flooding in lowland areas caused by intense precipitation. The probability of flooding will increase when we do not adapt our water systems. For example because of expected changes in climate and the consequences of subsidence, sea level rise, and urbanization. While the probability of flooding will increase,...
