Janssen, D. (author)
The dissertation explores the use of emergency measures, particularly the BresDefender, to prevent or delay levee failure and mitigate the impacts of floods, focusing on the Netherlands' flood protection systems. Levees are vital for protecting low-lying areas, but there's always a risk of failure, leading to significant societal and material...

The mechanisms and by-product formation of electrochemical oxidation (EO) for As(III) oxidation in drinking water treatment using groundwater was investigated. Experiments were carried out using a flowthrough system, with an RuO <sub>2</sub>/IrO <sub>2</sub> MMO Ti anode electrode, fed with synthetic and natural groundwater containing As(III)...

Long-term consumption of groundwater containing elevated levels of arsenic (As) can have severe health consequences, including cancer. To effectively remove As, conventional treatment technologies require expensive chemical oxidants to oxidise neutral arsenite (As(III)) in groundwater to negatively charged arsenate (As(V)), which is more...

To cope with the groundwater depletion problem and achieve sustainable groundwater development, groundwater conservation measures and managed aquifer recharge (MAR) have been implemented worldwide. However, knowledge gaps exit how does the aquifer system respond to these interventions differently and if these interventions are adequate to...

Attention on the use of transboundary aquifers (TBAs) and their cross-border impacts is growing as countries become increasingly concerned about their long-term water security. Cross-border impacts, in groundwater quality and quantity, tend to concentrate in specific parts of TBAs, as they largely depend on the transboundary flow dynamics...

Nitrate leaching from agricultural soils is increasingly found in groundwater, a primary source of drinking water worldwide. This nitrate influx can potentially stimulate the biological oxidation of iron in anoxic groundwater reservoirs. Nitrate-dependent iron-oxidizing (NDFO) bacteria have been extensively studied in laboratory settings, yet...

Groundwater management is a complex task that includes a multitude of actors. It is even more complicated in water scarce countries with less well-established formal water governance structures. In these settings, local government officers have been recognised for their essential role in groundwater management. Often, their role is described...

Groundwater extraction has increased significantly in Nepal. In combination with climate change, this might lead to accelerated groundwater resource depletion. No recent research has been done in the assessment of these resources in the Banke district development area in the Terai. This study aims to assess whether the intensification of...

PWN is responsible for supplying sufficient quantities of high-quality water to its customers. The growing population and the effects of climate change, such as heat waves and droughts, are straining the capacity of the water supply network, especially during dry and warm periods when water demand increases. A significant portion of the drinking...

This research studies groundwater sustainability in the Ramganga river basin of northern India. This region experiences a trifecta of hydrological stressors from groundwater over-extraction, frequent flooding during wet seasons, and agricultural droughts during dry seasons. There is a growing body of interventions known as...

Understanding solute and heat transport processes in aquifers is crucial for monitoring and protecting the groundwater critical zone. Crosshole ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a useful method for enhancing transport characterization in aquifers. Particularly, GPR full-waveform inversion (FWI) can provide subsurface images with resolution at...

Groundwater is an essential source of drinking water, and it often contains contaminants in the form of dissolved metal ions that pose health risks and affect its suitability for consumption. Removal of these contaminants by conventional treatment methods, such as oxidation and filtration, results in additional treatment steps for managing...

García Grez, Felipe (author)
The integrated management of river catchments is a challenge to be addressed by many water authorities, where some of them even today do not yet incorporate the aquifers’ status in decision-making. This situation has led to the depletion of many aquifers, deeply affecting the drinking water supply, agriculture, and industries. This challenge is...

Variable density groundwater models are essential for managing coastal groundwater resources. However, their practical applicability can be questioned due to limited validation opportunities on long timescales associated with the development of fresh-saline distributions. This study addresses this challenge by applying upscaled metamodeling...

Holst, Tjark (author)
Groundwater (GW) makes up roughly half of the global drinking water supply. Conventional iron removal in GW treatment produces approximately 10,000t/d of iron sludge. Iron sludge consists of low-density flocs with low to no commercial value and causes frequent energy intensive backwashing of the rapid sand filter. This study aimed to explore the...

Rapid discharge of excess water has always been the core of Dutch water management. Due to climate change, a change in strategy is required. A future-proof drainage strategy consists of three steps: 1) retention, 2) storage, and 3) controlled removal. This thesis comprises the design and evaluation of an algorithm for groundwater-based Model...

For this thesis a hydrochemical groundwater survey was carried out on the Caribbean island of Curaçao in 2020 as part of the NWO SEALINK project. In order to be well-adapted against anthropogenic and natural pressures, Curaçao needs representative data, yet thorough hydrochemical datasets were only sparsely collected in the wet seasons of 1977...

The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...

For the development of regional landslide early warning systems, empirical-statistical thresholds are of crucial importance. The thresholds indicate the meteorological and hydrological conditions initiating landslides and are an affordable approach towards reducing people’s vulnerability to landslide hazards. This thesis defined different...

Agriculture is considered one of the primary elements for socioeconomic stability in most parts of Sudan. Consequently, the irrigation water should be properly managed to achieve sustainable crop yield and soil fertility. This research aims to predict the irrigation indices of sodium adsorption ratio (SAR), sodium percentage (Na%), permeability...
