This thesis delves into glacier dynamics using the 2D Shallow Ice Approximation enriched by satellite remote sensing data on glacier surface velocities and ice thickness, aiming to refine empirical laws for better predicting glacier movements. The integration of such data has been pivotal, markedly enhancing model calibration despite challenges...

In recent years, researchers have proposed a variety of approaches to tackle the problem of orbital debris. Debris targets are diverse, and prior knowledge may be limited, with unknown uncooperative debris targets being the most challenging category. A crucial portion of any debris capture scenario is the observation phase during the approach....

During a solar eclipse, sunlight incident on the Earth is reduced due to the (partial) shadow of the Moon. Atmospheric trace gas concentrations which are influenced by the amount of available sunlight, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>), may be affected due to the disrupted photolysis processes. Large-scale observations of the increased...

Sand waves can have a significant impact on offshore activities, and with the global push for sustainability and more renewable energy sources, these negative impacts will become more prevalent. Sand waves in the North Sea have a height up to a couple of meters and a wavelength between 100 and 1000 meters. The migration or change in asymmetry of...

Agriculture plays a critical role in the economy and environment worldwide, and the provision of real-time, reliable information on large-scale agricultural activity is essential for precision agriculture and global economic prosperity. In this context, remote sensing, especially through Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), can play an important role...

Recent policy initiatives in Europe emphasize a movement towards nature-based solutions in flood management; however, a quantitative relationship between specific flood management measures and indicators of ecological health and biodiversity is difficult to establish (Penning et al., 2023). In the Netherlands, several studies have been conducted...

Mountains are important suppliers of freshwater to downstream areas, affecting large populations in particular in High Mountain Asia (HMA). Yet, the propagation of water from HMA headwaters to downstream areas is not fully understood, as interactions in the mountain water cycle between the cryo-, hydro- and biosphere remain elusive. We review...

Regional-scale assessment of the damage caused by earthquakes to structures is crucial for post-disaster management. While remote sensing techniques can be of great help for a quick post-event structural assessment of large areas, currently available methods are limited to the detection of severely-damaged buildings. Furthermore, remote...

Earthquakes have devastating effects on densely urbanised regions, requiring rapid and extensive damage assessment to guide resource allocation and recovery efforts. Traditional damage assessment is time-consuming, resource-intensive, and faces challenges in covering vast affected areas, often limiting timely decision-making. Space-borne...

Enhanced and effective hydrological monitoring plays a crucial role in understanding water-related processes in a rapidly changing world. Within this context, image-based river monitoring has been shown to significantly enhance data collection, improve analysis and accuracy, and support effective and timely decision making. The integration of...

Assessing real-world emissions from buses and taxis is vital to comprehend their impact on urban air quality. Such vehicles differ significantly from the majority of the fleet owing to their higher mileage rates. However, few studies have focused on specifically assessing the emissions from this segment of the vehicle fleet. In this context,...

The increasing popularity of helium-assisted blimps for extended monitoring or data collection applications is hindered by a critical limitation &amp;#x2013; single-point failure when the balloon malfunctions or bursts. To address this, we introduce &lt;bold&gt;Janus&lt;/bold&gt;, a hybrid blimp-drone platform equipped with integrated balloon...

Adjustment theory can be regarded as the part of mathematical geodesy that deals with the optimal combination of redundant measurements together with the estimation of unknown parameters. It is essential for a geodesist, its meaning comparable to what mechanics means to a civil engineer or a mechanical engineer. Historically, the first methods...

While image-based georeferencing systems are widely available, none are designed for edge computing on board small satellites in space. Recent advances in autonomous data processing allow points of interest (POIs) to be identified in the captured images, enabling prioritization of data and reducing required downlink bandwidths. Directly...

New mining and exploration projects have revived across Europe with an increasing demand for critical raw materials driven by the energy transition and unstable political conditions. Hyperspectral imaging proves to be an excellent tool for quick and efficient non-invasive mineral exploration. By mounting hyperspectral- and LiDAR sensors on...

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...

The use of radars for remote sensing in atmospheric sciences has become increasingly popular over the past few decades. Weather radars play a crucial role in measuring, interpreting, and monitoring various atmospheric phenomena. However, accurate retrieval of vertical air velocities remains a challenging problem owing to certain deficiencies in...

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...
