Coastal protection is required to keep coastal areas protected during storm conditions. Coastal dunes are a natural defense against flooding and erosion from the sea against storms. Many insights have been obtained regarding the positive effects of coastal dune vegetation on dune formation and growth in the past. Several recent studies have...

As a response to the dry summer of 2018, Witteveen+Bos developed a model for water demand prediction to improve insight into water demands. Validation by water board "Hunze en Aas" has revealed the predictive power of the irrigation model to be very limited. For this thesis project, we developed a methodology for the detection of irrigation of...

Monitoring of the status of vegetation is required for nature conservation. However, doing this for large areas is a time intensive task. Now the use of aerial data from airplanes has made this task easier. However this data source is dependent on the weather conditions and permission to fly in the busy airspace above the Netherlands. An...

From three coherent SAR images it is possible to estimate three interferograms. Combined in a circular way, the sum of the three interferometric phases is called the closure phase which necessarily adds up to zero on a single pixel level. However, if the interferograms are spatially averaged, phase consistency is not guaranteed. In most of the...

Vegetated permeable pavement systems (VPPS) contribute to a more climate-resilient application of urban water management. However, a complete hydrologic evaluation of vegetated permeable pavement systems has not been found in existing literature. This research presents an evaluation of the hydrologic performance of VPPS under Dutch climatic...

Hydrological models are often used to evaluate future changes in streamflow. Despite the strong aware- ness of non-stationarity in hydrological system characteristics, model parameters are often assumed stationary and obtained through calibration on past conditions. The representation of system change in hydrological models is challenging, as a...

Salt marshes can contribute to coastal protection, but the magnitude of the protection depends on the width of the marsh. The cross-shore width of the marsh is to a large extent determined by the delicate balance between seaward expansion and landward retreat. The influence of the magnitude of daily occurring mild weather conditions and...

The presence of surface water on the canopy affects radar backscatter. However, its influence on the relationship between radar backscatter and crop biophysical parameters has not been investigated. The aim of this study was to quantify the influence of surface canopy water (SCW) on the relationship between L-band radar backscatter and...

Industrial agriculture results in environmental burdens due to the overuse of fertilizers and pesticides. Fungicides is a class of pesticides whose application contributes (among others) to human toxicity and ecotoxicity. The European Union aims to increase organic agriculture. For this reason, this work aims to analyze climate change,...

The last years, capacity of vegetation to reduce wave impact is receiving considerable attention. To predict wave attenuation processes within vegetation fields reliable estimates of vegetation parameters are needed. This proves to be difficult for woody vegetation as it consists of complex branch structures, characterized by varying branch...

The world around us is rapidly changing and evolving. In a new report by the World green structure committee, the building and development industry are liable for 38.8% of all CO2 emissions internationally, with operational outflows (from energy used to warmth, cool and light structures) representing 28%. Our designed structures depend upon many...

Dikes hold back water and protect the land behind it from flooding. Due to rising sea levels, land subsidence and more extreme weather patterns, the function of dikes become increasingly important. To ensure dike safety, dikes are regularly inspected. With about 22,500 kilometers of dikes in the Netherlands, this is a very slow, costly and time...

Large areas of the Netherlands are below the sea level, and a network of primary and secondary (regional) dikes protect these areas from inundation. Regular assessments and monitoring are implemented with the intention of ensuring the safety of the protected areas. However these assessments usually ignore that these dikes are subject to various...

Sea turtles are a popular tourist attraction that offers travelers a unique nature experience. As a part of Saudi Arabia’s 2030 vision, an unprecedented amount of tourism development is being carried out under the ‘Red Sea Development Project’. The aim is to develop hyper-luxury islands in a sustainable and ecologically friendly way by closely...

Salt marshes are ecosystems with significant economic and environmental value. They provide numerous services, including nutrient removal, habitat provision and carbon sequestration (Barbier et al., 2011). They are also widely recognised as nature-based solutions for coastal defence due to their ability to buffer storm waves (Leonardi et al.,...

In the past decade, observations in the German estuaries such as the rivers Elbe and Weser show increasingly serious damage to bank protection structures (groins and revetments). This damage is caused mainly by waves induced by the passing of big container ships in the shallow and narrow maritime waterways. These ship-induced 3D wave fields...

This thesis contributes to the scientific underpinning of the battle against fruit frost. Fruit frost is the freezing damage to blossoms when in the growing season the night temperature drops below 0±C. This results in damaged or undeveloped fruits, and a yield loss for the fruit farmer. Several techniques against fruit frost have been developed...

Mudflats are coastal features present in numerous locations around the planet. Depending on the latitude and local conditions, mudflats can be vegetated by salt marshes or by mangroves and play an important role in coastal evolution. Vegetated mudflats can create a remarkable sea defense and their high ecosystem value has been proven by various...

Droughts are considered to be one of the most damaging, yet least understood, natural hazards of all. Despite their prevalence, a thorough understanding of them lacks because they are such complex phenomena, and their manifestation can differ depending on the region they occur in. Monitoring hydrological variables and processes is imperative for...

Sustainable development can only be achieved with an innovative improvement from the way we currently analyze, design, build and manage our urban spaces. Current digital analysis and design methods for cities, such as visibility analysis, deeply rely on mapping and modeling techniques. However, most methods fall short of depicting the real...
