In the field of fluid mechanics, there has been a significant shift towards the integration of machine and deep learning techniques to address challenges in reduced-order modeling, flow feature analysis, and control, especially within the realm of active flow control (AFC) for objectives such as lift optimization and drag reduction. Deep...

This thesis explores how forecasts of Dutch government bond yields can be improved by extending the current Dynamic Nelson-Siegel (DNS) model, used by the Dutch State Treasury Agency (DSTA), with stochastic volatility modeling and a Bayesian approach to parameter estimation and forecasting. The primary goal was to determine if the model...

Through several contractions, stiff competition, and increasing passenger expectations, airports must evolve continually. One of the main avenues for this has been improving the efficiency of the security check- points, which are airports’ primary bottlenecks. Operational optimisation methods, such as resource and task scheduling are relatively...

Traffic condition forecasting is fundamental for Intelligent Transportation Systems. Besides accuracy, many services require an estimate of uncertainty for each prediction. Uncertainty quantification must consider the inherent randomness in traffic dynamics, the so-called aleatoric uncertainty, and the additional distrust caused by data shortage...

Bayesian-based data assimilation methods integrate observational data into geophysical forward models to obtain the temporal evolution of an improved state vector, including its uncertainties. We explore the potential of a variant, a particle method, to estimate mechanical parameters of the overriding plate during the interseismic period....

Kazakhstan is recently experiencing an increase in drought trends. However, low-capacity probabilistic drought forecasts and poor dissemination have led to a drought crisis in 2021 that resulted in the loss of thousands of livestock. To improve drought forecasting accuracy, this study applies Machine Learning and Deep Learning (ML and DL)...

As housing development and housing market policies involve many long-term decisions, improving house price predictions could benefit the functioning of the housing market. Therefore, in this paper, we investigate how house price predictions can be improved. In particular, the merits of Bayesian estimation techniques in enhancing house price...

Sub-seasonal drought forecasting is crucial for early warning in estimating agricultural production and optimizing irrigation management, as forecasting skills are relatively weak during this period. Soil moisture exhibits stronger persistence compared to other climate system quantities, which makes it especially influential in shaping land...

In many areas of industry and society, including energy, healthcare, and logistics, agents collect vast amounts of data that are deemed proprietary. These data owners extract predictive information of varying quality and relevance from data depending on quantity, inherent information content, and their own technical expertise. Aggregating...

This study develops a methodology to characterise and forecast large consumers’ electricity demand, particularly municipalities, with hundreds of different metered supply points based on the previous characterisation of facilities’ consumption. Demand forecasting allows consumers to improve their participation in electricity markets and...

The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium were hit by heavy and prolonged precipitation in July 2021. As time passed, weather warnings escalated, leading to evacuations due to predicted floods, including in the Rur catchment. It was difficult to forecast the flooding of the Rur, raising the question of which elements are crucial in a flood...

Punctuality is a key performance indicator for any airline. Hub-and-spoke airlines are particularly committed to on-time arrivals to guarantee passenger connections. Flights that are delayed at departure need to compensate for the lost time whilst airborne. Because fueling takes place well before scheduled departure, predicted departure delays...

Purpose: This paper explores the potential of machine learning (ML) algorithms to mitigate uncertainty in early environmental assessments (ex-ante LCA), which are hindered by prospective nature and limited quantitative data availability. Methods: A systematic literature review with keyword searches on Scopus identified three ML categorization...

Air traffic sector demand and capacity balancing is an important process to enable safe and efficient flight execution. In current operations, demand and capacity are determined based on schedules and flight plans. In reality, disruptions to flights create a different situation that may not have been anticipated by the Air Navigation Service...

The Wadden Sea serves multiple roles: it acts as a protective barrier against severe wave conditions, is a natural habitat for diverse flora and fauna and has recreational purposes. This research provides a comprehensive analysis of the intricate morphological dynamics of the Wadden Sea. By implementing various model schematizations, the study...
