Evolutionary Multi-Objective Direct Policy Search (EMODPS) is a prominent framework for designing control policies in multi-purpose environmental systems, combining direct policy search with multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs) to identify Pareto approximate control policies. While EMODPS is effective, the choice of functions...

This article presents the design of a control strategy for the Calais canal, a navigation canal located in a lowland area in northern France that is affected by tides. Moreover, the available actuators are discrete-valued and the hierarchy of operational objectives is time-varying. All these circumstances render water level regulation of the...

As the impact of climate change becomes increasingly urgent, conflicts over transboundary water resources have become more complex, particularly in light of the role of water in shaping socioeconomic and regional power dynamics. The challenge of optimizing objectives and strategic behavior across multiple stakeholders simultaneously makes it...

Rapid discharge of excess water has always been the core of Dutch water management. Due to climate change, a change in strategy is required. A future-proof drainage strategy consists of three steps: 1) retention, 2) storage, and 3) controlled removal. This thesis comprises the design and evaluation of an algorithm for groundwater-based Model...

The study of water is without question an important one. We can learn a lot by studying the theory but in the end, it is essential to actually go out into the field and see the hydrological processes in practice for ourselves. The educational value of fieldwork lies not only in seeing theory become reality but also in experiencing the...

Groundwater extraction has increased significantly in Nepal. In combination with climate change, this might lead to accelerated groundwater resource depletion. No recent research has been done in the assessment of these resources in the Banke district development area in the Terai. This study aims to assess whether the intensification of...

Model Predictive Control (MPC) has recently gained increasing interest in the adaptive management of water resources systems due to its capability of incorporating disturbance forecasts into real-time optimal control problems. Yet, related literature is scattered with heterogeneous applications, case-specific problem settings, and results...

On the 13th and 14th of July 2021 a cold pit caused extreme precipitation along with record discharges in tributaries of the Meuse. These discharges caused floods in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.<br/><br/>Extreme precipitation occurrence and its intensity are expected to increase in the area due to climate change, increasing flood risk....

Rain-fed agriculture is the main source of food in Ghana therefore improving quantitative rainfall estimates is essential for local farmers to predict crop growth using vegetation models. Rainfall dynamics in the tropics is an ongoing topic of research due to their complexity and sub-grid precipitation variability. At the same time, tropical...

The water quality of the Brantas river in Indonesia is of concern to several agencies on East Java. These agencies all measure its water quality in their own way in terms of locations, rhythms and parameters. The goal of this thesis is to find out if these agencies measure the same and if not, how these measurements differ. From these...

Purple bacteria (PPB), anoxygenic photoorganoheterotrophic organisms with a hyper-versatile metabolism and high biomass yields over substrate, are promising candidates for the recovery of nutrient resources from wastewater. Infrared light is a pivotal parameter to control and design PPB-based resource recovery. However, the effects of light...

Integrated management of water reuse technologies and coordinated operations with other water system components is fundamental to fully exploiting reuse potential. Yet, these technologies are primarily designed considering their individual efficiency more than possible synergies with traditional water management practices. In this paper, we...

Efficient multi-purpose reservoir control policies are crucial in the face of frequent and severe floods and droughts, and to balance water allocation across conflicting demands. Evolutionary Multi-Objective Direct Policy Search (EMODPS) is a popular approach to design control policies for multi-purpose reservoir systems. EMODPS, however, relies...

Participation in demand response (DR) has been explored for many large energy-using assets based on day ahead electricity markets. In this manuscript, we propose the use of multiple electricity spot markets to enable price-based DR for open canal systems in the Netherlands, where many large pumping stations are used for flood mitigation and...

Achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is contingent on understanding the potential interactions among human and natural systems. In Kenya, the goal of conserving and expanding forest cover to achieve SDG 15 “Life on Land” may be related to other SDGs because it plays a role in regulating some aspects of Kenyan...

The Blue Nile is characterised by growing tensions between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt related to increasing demands for water and upcoming unilateral developments. Growing efforts towards basin wide cooperation from the international and scientific community have led to the development of a common decision support tool, the Nile Basin Decision...

Large parts of the world rely on rainfed agriculture for their food security. In Africa, 90% of the agricultural yields rely only on precipitation for irrigation purposes and approximately 80% of the population’s livelihood is highly dependent on its food production. Parts of Ghana are prone to droughts and flood events due to increasing...

In Kenya, where 80% of the land is arid and semi-arid, access to water is an everyday challenge for majority of the people. Methods used to improve access to water in Kenya results to different, and sometimes unexpected outcomes. The water resources assessed have come about through interventions by various agents, majority donor funded. These...

Big data sources can play an important role in revolutionizing the field of water resources research. Time series data with high temporal and spatial dimensions encapsulates with itself numerous factors essential for coming up with robust decisions. In this thesis, we assess one such big data source for efficient water management in the Oum Er...
