In the second half of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century the amount of natural disasters has increased rapidly. Due to this rise in occurrences, more people are affected. An important indicator for people affected is the amount of damage to buildings. To gather this information aid workers now have to go into the field to gather data on...

Climate change has been a heated topic in recent years, and the mass loss of ice sheets is one aspect of it. The Antarctic Ice Sheet has experienced certain mass loss in the form of ice-shelf collapse and (sub-)surface melting, but thorough study remains limited due to the remote location of the continent. Therefore, remote sensing is expected...

Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have increased unconventional oil and gas extraction from shale reserves in the U.S. in the last decade, making up more than half of total U.S. oil and gas production at present. This activity results in NOx emissions in the extraction regions that are measurable from space using the Ozone Monitoring...

This report proposes improvements of the land surface model (LSM) used in the turbulence-resolving Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy Simulation model (DALES). Important changes include the infiltration of precipitation, the parametrization of the soil hydraulic functions and the formulation of the soil water extraction by vegetation roots. The...

Lidar systems can provide vertically resolved measurements of the physical and optical properties of the atmospheric particles with high spatiotemporal resolution. In this study, four case studies were analyzed and studied in order to identify the dominant aerosol type over the city of Nicosia in Cyprus: 05 April and 07 April 2015 and 17 April...

Operational nearshore current forecasts based on numerical model simulations are gaining popularity as a measure to increase the safety of swimmers. Applying remotely-sensed bathymetry in these model simulations is often proposed in order to cope with rapidly changing nearshore bathymetry. Errors in the remotely-sensed bathymetry may...

During World War II West Papua was the scene of war between the Axis and the Allies. In this case, it was the Japanese on one side Australian and US forces on the other. After the war a lot of equipment was left in the jungle and because of the low population density on the island some material can still be found to this day. Planes and vehicles...

Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are important air pollutants and play a crucial role in climate change. NOx emissions are important for chemical transport models to simulate and forecast air quality. Up-to-date emission information also helps policymakers to mitigate air pollution. In this thesis, we have focused on providing better NOx emission estimates...

Clouds and aerosols continue to contribute to the largest uncertainty to estimates and interpretations of the Earth's changing energy budget. By comparing relative humidity (RH) and attenuated backscatter ratio (ATB) data and deriving scattering hygroscopic enhancement factors at the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Physics Research ...

More than half of Vietnam's national rice production is produced in the Mekong Delta. Many hectares of rice were damaged due to extensive salinity intrusion during the dry season of 2016. The impact of salinity intrusion on rice production is studied by (1) mapping the impact using remote sensing data (MODIS NDVI time-series) and (2)...

Spatiotemporal ecological modelling of terrestrial ecosystems relies on climatological and biophysical Earth observations. Due to their increasing availability, global coverage, frequent acquisition and high spatial resolution, satellite remote sensing (SRS) products are frequently integrated to in situ data in the development of ecosystem...

The operational use of satellite systems has been increasing due to technological advances and the reduced costs of satellites and their launching. As such it has become more relevant to determine how to better use these new capabilities which is reflected in an increase in application studies in this area. This work focuses on the problem of...

The calibration of hydrological models without streamflow observations is problematic, and the simultaneous, combined use of remotely sensed products for this purpose has not been exhaustively tested thus far. Our hypothesis is that the combined use of products can (1) reduce the parameter search space and (2) improve the representation of...

The North Sea is known for its marine activities, which need ocean data for safe operations. The ocean surface is described using the two-dimensional wave spectrum. This ocean wave spectrum can be estimated using wave buoys, wave models or remote sensing techniques. Wave buoys and numerical models are known to contain inaccuracies, which...

Chlorophyll (Chl) and Total Suspended Matter (TSM) are both important water quality parameters since they influence the amount of oxygen & amount of light penetrating the water. Oxygen and light are vital in marine ecosystems. The Dutch governmental organisation, Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), has been monitoring the water quality of the Dutch part...

Mangroves are forest ecosystems growing in (sub)tropical saline coastal environments. With their unique root structure they serve as important natural coastal protection and provide habitats with excellent conditions for cultivating fish, shrimp and crab species. Despite all benefits mangrove forests are disappearing at alarming rates around the...

Vegetation is a crucial part of the water and carbon cycle. Through photosynthesis carbon is assimilated for biomass production, and oxygen is released into the atmosphere. During this process, water is transpired through the stomata, and is redistributed in the plant. Transpired water is refilled by uptake of water from the root zone in the...
