Fully distributed hydrological models take into account the spatial variability of a catchment, and allow for assessing its hydrological response at virtually any location. However, these models can be time-consuming when it comes to model runtime and calibration, especially for large-scale catchments. Meanwhile, deep learning models have shown...

The joint ESA/NASA Mass-change And Geosciences International Constellation (MAGIC) has the objective to extend time-series from previous gravity missions, including an improvement of accuracy and spatio-temporal resolution. The long-term monitoring of Earth’s gravity field carries information on mass change induced by water cycle, climate...

This study aims to establish a framework for the growing number of trend analyses that have been performed on river flows in Europe. Most studies apply statistical trend test to fixed periods with relatively short records. Fixed periods are crucial for trend testing, as they provide an appropriate visualisation in a geographical sense. However,...

The research question addressed in this study is ”To what extent does the presence of a cloud forest canopy impact the Mestelá River catchment and how will this affect the various involved stakeholders?”. The study aims to investigate the importance of cloud forests in the Mestelá River catchment, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, related to water...

This research addresses how Ricanau Mofo, a low-lying village in Surinam, can become a more water-adaptive and sustainable village, while it faces land erosion, river bank erosion, changing rainfall patterns and sea level rise. It is urgent to intervene, as these issues are expected to increase in occurrence due to climate change. Constraints...

In order to evaluate measures to increase water availability in and around reservoirs it is necessary to have reliable reservoir water storage models. For that reason, it is necessary to assess the validity of these models. The aim of this research is to do this assessment of two models in data scarce semi- arid regions. The Nakamb ́e catchment...

Climate change imposes an increasingly big challenge worldwide regarding floods and droughts. The Netherlands is no exception to this, as it has been increasingly hit by these phenomena in recent years, especially in the south of the country. The July 2021 flood in the Geul catchment intensified discussions on climate resilience. It prompts...

Capillary barrier systems (CBSs) have been demonstrated to be effective in deviating infiltration in a landfill cover. However, their performance when combined with a cover soil optimised for methane oxidation had not been tested in the field yet. This study aimed to describe the water balance of a test field where such a configuration was built...

Predicting streamflow in a changing climate poses significant challenges for traditional hydrological models. Static parameter sets result from model calibrations over historical data that increasingly encounter the non-stationary impacts on the hydrological system. Endeavouring toward non-stationary model parameters by incorporating time...

Rivers play a crucial role in shaping landscapes and supporting ecosystems. This is demonstrated by the tiger habitats in and around Bardia National Park in West-Nepal, which rely on the Karnali River. This study contributes to a larger effort aimed at sustainably managing these tiger habitats. Monitoring the rivers in this remote area is...

The world as we know it today has largely been shaped by human intervention. Given the importance of water in particular many small-scale interventions in the hydrological system have been applied. In order to predict and monitor how these interventions affect the hydrological cycle, hydrological research has to be performed. In this thesis,...

The Bui Dam, the second-largest hydropower dam in Ghana, plays a significant role in the sustainable energy mix of the country. It is managed by the Bui Power Authority (BPA) and has a capacity of hydro-clean generation of 404MW, contributing to 17% of the country’s total electricity generation. However, decision-making at the dam lacks the use...

Throughout sub-Saharan Africa, agricultural activities in urban and peri-urban areas are threatened by urban sprawl. These activities are important not just for the livelihoods of those who take part in it, but also for the food security of the city. Historically, in Kumasi 40% of the crops in the city are sourced from urban and peri-urban...

This project is a consulting project for Community Cloud Forest Conservation (CCFC) on how to obtain and communicate to relevant stakeholders an understanding of the impact of land use change and climate change on the hydrological balance of the cloud forest ecosystem in the Sierra Yalijux. The outcomes of the project will be used by CCFC and...

The role played by the Mekong River in the organization of land and people is inextricably linked with a particular spatial category. The concept of the hydrological catchment extends the space of the river far beyond the limits of the river’s perennial waterbodies, to encompass vast areas inhabited by millions of people speaking different...

Modeling the relationship between rainfall and runoff is a longstanding challenge in hydrology and is crucial for informed water management decisions. Recently, Deep Learning models, particularly Long short-term memory (LSTM), have shown promising results in simulating this relationship. The Transformer, a newly proposed deep learning...

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...

Debris-flow activity is strongly controlled by hydro-meteorological trigger conditions, which are expected to change in a future climate. In this study we connect a regional hydro-meteorological susceptibility model for debris flows with climate projections until 2100 to assess changes of the frequency of critical trigger conditions for...

Hydrological ecosystem services (HESS) describe the benefits of water for multiple purposes with an emphasis on environmental values. The value of HESS is often not realized because primary benefits (e.g., food production, water withdrawals) get the most attention. Secondary benefits such as water storage, purification or midday temperature...

The principles of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), conservation of natural capital, and water accounting requires Hydrological Eco-System Services (HESS) to be determined. This paper presents a modeling approach for quantifying the HESS framework using the Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). SWAT was used–after calibration against...
