The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS), which stores freshwater equal to more than seven meters of potential sea level rise, strongly interacts with the global, Arctic and North Atlantic climate. In a warming climate, the GrIS has been losing mass and is projected to lose mass at an increasing rate. The interactions between the GrIS and the climate have...

Ocean heat exchanges at the marginal ice zone (MIZ) play an important role in melting sea ice. Mixed-layer eddies transport heat and ice floes across the MIZ, facilitating the pack's access to warm waters. This study explores these frontal dynamics using disk-shaped floes coupled to an upper-ocean model simulating the sea ice edge. Numerical...

In some areas of Antarctica, blue-colored bare ice is exposed at the surface. These blue ice areas (BIAs) can trap meteorites or old ice and are vital for understanding the climatic history. By combining multi-sensor remote sensing data (MODIS, RADARSAT-2, and TanDEM-X) in a deep learning framework, we map blue ice across the continent at 200...

A modeling approach to simulate ice-induced vibrations of vertically sided offshore structures in ice tank experiments is presented. The technique combines replica modeling with the preservation of kinematics during ice-structure interaction. The technique was chosen based on the theoretical understanding that ice-induced vibrations are...

This research investigates the dynamic response of offshore wind turbine (OWT) systems subject to ice-structure-soil interaction (ISSI). To simulate the behavior of level ice sheets, a coupled approach involving the cohesive element method (CEM) and the finite element method (FEM) is applied. For soil-structure interaction (SSI), the Mohr...

Ice, a pervasive element across the Solar System, holds immense importance in understanding the response of the Earth to ongoing climate change as well as the dynamics of planetary bodies. This dissertation investigates ice fractures on terrestrial and planetary ice bodies, focusing on their impact on the melting of ice shelves in Antarctica and...

Hoebus, Laura (author)
In cold regions, the formation and accumulation of ice can cause safety hazards and impede proper operation of equipment. By example, ice accumulation on aircraft wings can increase drag, increase weight, reduce upward force and decrease aircraft speed. <br/><br/>For these reasons, proper anti- or de-icing techniques need to be developed. These...

This graduation thesis studies the CI combustion of ammonia and hydrogen in an ICE. It contains a review of the literature and a modeling study of the ignition and cylinder performance of the AmmoniaDrive test engine. AmmoniaDrive is a NWO-funded research project that aims to decarbonize shipping by introducing an ammonia-fuelled SOFC-ICE power...

Enceladus, one of the icy moons of Saturn, has been of major scientific interest since the Cassini-Huygens mission has explored the Saturn system. This is due to cryovolcanic geysers with complex organic molecules and other ingredients for life in it blasting into space from its subglacial warm ocean. The moon's harsh environmental conditions...

High-frame-rate volumetric ultrasound imaging is highly desired to enable novel clinical ultrasound applications. However, realizing high-quality volumetric ultrasound imaging at a high frame rates (&gt;500 Hz) is challenging. Keeping the cable count and data rate of the transducer device at a realistic level without sacrificing image quality to...

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,...

This thesis describes the design of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) for high-frame-rate 3D intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) probes. The work follows the whole process from the analysis of the application to the testing of a prototype with all envisioned functionality. It starts with the evaluation of the main challenges posed...

With the increasing concerns of the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutants and the push towards sustainable and greener means of transportation, there is a need for new drive systems running on alternative fuels. One fuel that holds significant potential as a marine fuel for the future is methanol. When produced utilising carbon...

Ice impact is quite common and may become critical especially if it involves the transportation sector. Simulation tools may help in the structural design phase to increase the ability to withstand this kind of impact and/or to analyse the effect under extreme weather conditions. Such tools require an accurate description of the mechanical...

The manual application of universal (Rigsby) stage techniques is commonly used to determine the fabric of thin sections of ice viewed with crossed-polarized light. This process can require hours of focus in cold conditions to identify the c-axis of each grain in a thin section. Automated ice texture and fabric methods of several forms exist...

Frost salt scaling of concrete is related to cyclic freezing and melting of a few millimeter thick deicer solution on the surface of the concrete. It is almost absent when pure water is freezing and reaches a maximum at a so-called pessimum concentration that for NaCl is around 3%. Different mechanisms have been suggested to explain this...

Ice losses from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have accelerated since the 1990s, accounting for a significant increase in the global mean sea level. Here, we present a new 29-year record of ice sheet mass balance from 1992 to 2020 from the Ice Sheet Mass Balance Inter-comparison Exercise (IMBIE). We compare and combine 50 independent...
