The emission of CO2 is a significant contributor to global warming, with the mobility sector being a major source. The EU has set a goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, requiring substantial CO2 reduction efforts, particularly in densely populated regions like the Rhine-Delta (RDR). This region’s extensive mobility network, serving both...

Currently, the Southwestern Delta is ill. The inability to produce its essential ecosystem services hinders the Delta from being healthy. Systems that make the Delta economy prosper are the main reasons for this obstruction. If current hazards like salinisation, soil depletion, and nitrogen pollution continue; the livelihood of the peri-urban...

The Hollandsche IJssel plays an important role in the freshwater provision of the province Zuid-Holland. Consequently, for Rijkswaterstaat it is key that salt intrusion is minimal in the Hollandsche IJssel. Recent studies noted that salt intrusion in the Hollandsche IJssel is limited due to a phase difference between tidal velocities in the main...

Advances in CMOS technologies and circuit techniques have led to the development of continuous-time delta-sigma modulators (CTΔ Σ Ms) that sample at gigahertz (GHz) frequencies and achieve high linearity [-100 dBc and >120 dBFS spurious-free dynamic ranges (SFDRs)] in wide bandwidths (>100 MHz). However, at low frequencies (≤ 10 MHz),...

The hydropower development in the Mekong Basin affects the silt and clay concentrations in the river which has ecological as well as socio-economic effects on the Mekong Delta and its inhabitants. Therefore, the first objective of this research was to obtain a better understanding of the effect of hydropower development on the silt and clay load...

Voice activity detection (VAD) is the prevailing approach to extracting meaningful speech information from the pervasive noise found in the physical environment. Presently, deep neural networks (DNN) are widely employed as the classifier component in Voice Activity Detection (VAD) systems. However, conventional deep neural networks, like fully...

This study is an analysis of sand mining in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD) with the use of the optical satellite data set PlanetScope. This is done with a detection and classification model of sand mining vessels in the VMD. The classification model is based on machine-learning and it is trained with three classes: sand mining vessels, other...

This thesis describes the design of a 3rd order 1-bit delta-sigma modulator whose input-signal range (0 to 1.95V) exceeds its supply voltage (1.2V). By using a passive input stage and a single-OTA resonator, this beyond-the-rails modulator realizes a 3rd order loop filter with only two amplifiers instead of the usual three and thus achieves...

The Vietnamese Mekong Delta, a vital region in the country’s economy, faces the dual challenges of coastal erosion and mangrove degradation, which threaten its long-term sustainability and flood protection capabilities. This research focuses on the coastal area of the Bac Lieu province, characterized by severe erosion and degrading mangrove...

The Mekong Delta in Vietnam is facing several challenges as a result of climate change. Among others, the effects include an increase in river discharge during the wet season, leading to river floods, and a decrease in river discharge during the dry season. The decrease in discharge results in a shortage of fresh water required for irrigation...

MEMS microphones offer a significant scope to improve miniaturization, integration and cost of acoustic systems, poised to be the preferred microphone option for consumer electronics and medical advancements. A MEMS microphone needs a readout interface to convert the microphone’s output to a digital code for further processing, while its poor...

Transcranial Doppler ultrasound imaging is a crucial tool for both clinical and research applications. Despite its significance, its utility is constrained by the dynamic range limitations of the receiver system. Traditional methods, relying on high-dynamic-range front-end amplifiers and high-resolution ADCs, are often inefficient. These methods...

Flow sensing is essential in various industrial, commercial, and biomedical applications. Although many types of flow sensors exist, thermal flow sensors are widely used due to their simple sensing elements (heaters and temperature sensors) and low fabrication costs. A low-cost interface for thermal flow sensors can then be realized with a...

The acceleration of the sea level rise will have an immediate global impact, especially on the Delta works. This projection increases the challenge for flood protection strategies and the existing flood barriers that currently lack adaptation for the higher water level. As an opportunity from the negative outcome of climate change and the most...

The Blue Heart is the deltaic territory composed of the IJssel Estuary, IJsselmeer-Markermeer, Wadden Sea, and the reclaimed polders of Flevoland and Wieringermeer. The Blue Heart is a globally important node of migration of aquatic species and birds due to its delta estuary geomorphology. However, the same deltaic conditions that allowed...
