This project is based on two sustainable construction methods, namely up-cycling (reuse of materials) and vertical farming (green facades). These two concepts are combined to form a ‘Do It Yourself’ double skin façade, a double skin façade made with re-used sliding doors, which is aimed to be capable of developing ‘Edible Green’, which refers to...

The increasing frequency and intensity of extreme events due to global warming and climate change is increasing flood risk. To act, rather than react, nature-based solutions (NBS) involving vegetation and wetlands are being explored on top of conventional solutions like dikes. WHY? There was a dire need for global study quantifying the potential...

It is already acknowledged that Nature-based Solutions can be used to attenuate waves, however it is still uncertain to what extent the vegetation can contribute to decreasing the flood risk. So far mainly small-scale tests have been performed to quantify wave attenuating properties of vegetation. To quantify the effect of more extreme wave...

This study aims to characterize the variation in stomatal conductance and leaf water potential of corn plant in height over time on a diurnal time-scale and on a seasonal time-scale, under well-watered and water stressed conditions.<br/>An additional objective was the development of a protocol for plant-water relation measurements in radar...

In 2003, it was established that the sea dike between Petten and Camperduin was insufficiently safe.<br/>To ensure the safety of the hinterland against flooding, this part of the Dutch sea defence system needed to be strengthened.<br/>During the design process, the most favourable variant was to construct a dune and beach system in front of the...

Vegetation phenology is the interaction between vegetation activities and ecosystem. Accurate monitoring of vegetation phenology is required to build models and enhance the understanding of the relationship between creatures and climate-environment. PhenoCam is a ground-level, webcam based images database recording the growing of various...

3D city models are now common planning and analysis tools. Urban vegetation as a feature in these models, however, is neglected overshadowed by the focus on buildings, so its inclusion in 3D city models is often symbolic. On the other hand, urban vegetation improves the comfort and social well being of a city’s inhabitants and is a resource for...

Since the first telescopes were invented, scientists all over the Earth began to explore the universe. Till now only a microscopic fraction of the universe is discovered, and a lot more is waiting for us to be seen. As the universe is so enormous, a lot of scientists and people are asking themselves whether there is life elsewhere and if there...

Flood defenses are important to keep large parts of the Netherlands dry. These primary flood defences<br/>are every twelve years assessed on safety during the Dutch national safety assessment. In 2017, the new<br/>safety standards (WBI2017) were introduced. These stricter standards caused that in total 251 km of the<br/>primary flood defences...

The Ayeyarwady River is the most important river in Myanmar, connecting the cities Mandalay and Yangon, making inland water transport economically attractive. The Ayeyarwady River has a dynamic character, caused by the significant discharge difference between the dry and rainy season, and the related suspended sediment transport. Point bar...

Vegetation on river banks and bars contribute to the stability of these morphological features; however, the exact processes that contribute to this stabilization are still subject to research. This study has looked into the flow phenomena at the streamwise interface between a vegetated and non-vegetated river bed. Flow velocities in vegetated...

The Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) onboard the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) has provided measurements of vegetation structure and together with upcoming follow-up missions such as ICESat-2, vegetation changes may be studied globally in the near future. In this research project, ICESat’s individual ability to...
