The Meuse river facilitates important socio-economic functions. In the light of Integrated River Management (IRM), the question rises whether these functions can be facilitated in future decades (until 2050) as well. The riverbed is expected to degrade over the coming decades, just like in the past century. On top of that, the discharge regime...

The most urgent need for regeneration in the future is a large number of new workers' estates built from the 1950s. The physical and social decay problems of these areas start to become severe in recent years. There has already been some researches and regeneration of the buildings in these areas, but the public space quality is dissatisfied and...

The Netherlands has a long and fascinating history with water to keep its land safe and dry. Recently, when the country is exposed to a changing climate, it is at the turning point to shift from defensive water control to adaptive and integrated management. Landscape design has a role to play in endowing water and water management with new...

The Tsleil-Wautuh Nation (TWN) reserve, Sleil-Waututh, located at the north shore of the Burrard Inlet in Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada) is strongly influenced by climate change. Sea level rise, coastal flooding and shoreline erosion are contributing to loss of land, damages to infrastructure, ecosystem changes and exposure of historic...

As a low-lying city, Shanghai faces threats from typhoon and spring tide under the condition of climate change and land subsidence. With high water level at the toe, the sea embankment is likely to be overtopped and breached, finally resulting in inundation inland.  The objective of this research is to study climate change...

To help combat climate change, promote sustainable development and match the goals set in the Paris Agreement, the Province of Zuid-Holland wants to transition to a circular economy. To make this transition successful, the Province ought to adopt an integrative approach, addressing other elements such as socio-spatial inequality, pressure for...

In many parts of the world, water retained in snowpack and glaciers are critical to the stability of downstream ecosystems and human society. This study sets out to quantify, map, and explain the spatiotemporal pattern of annual snow cover duration, which are quantified by regional differences in the number of annual snow cover days (Dsc) and...

In order to ensure the sustainable development of cities, the existing building stock has to be transformed to stay relevant to the changing needs of urban dwellers and to reduce the economic and environmental impacts of cities on the planet. Thus, innovating and developing a strategy that prepares the built environment for 2050 is of...

This thesis examines the production of an alternative liquid hydrocarbon fuel, namely CO2-methanol, produced utilising DAC, CO2 electrolysis, H2O electrolysis and thermo-catalytic synthesis. The reason for such research lies in a persistent growth in global energy demand, a significant share of which comes from liquid fuels, in the present...

In contrast with other Dutch rivers parts, human measures in the upstream part of the River Meuse did not mainly focus on discharging surplus water, but on retaining water in dry periods. Almost 100 years ago seven weirs were constructed in the River Meuse to enable transport of coals. The structures reach, due to concrete degradation, the end...

Canal Emilio Mitre is a navigation channel that runs through the Rio de la Plata estuary in South America. It grants access to the second largest inland waterway system in South America, covering (parts of) Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. The channel is a main bottleneck for navigation for two reasons; the channel has a...

The current energy infrastructure, energy policy, and the business environment are designed to support the conventional power system. Hence, it is crucial to create a conducive business environment to accelerate the deployment and power generation through solar PV and wind power. This research has adapted the theory of the business environment...

The Greenland Ice Sheet is the world’s second largest ice sheet, storing an equivalent of 7.3 meters of sea level rise. Due to climate change, the Greenland ice sheet is currently losing mass at an accelerated rate. Ice sheet models are used to project long term melt of the ice sheet, which are often forced by output from climate models. Most of...

With the increasing Green House Gas emissions around the world, adoption of sustainable energy technologies is beginning to take a prominent role. As a part of its 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, India has been getting more ambitious in its targets for reducing the emissions intensity of GDP. Both at the central as well as state governments,...

Climate change causes temperatures to rise worldwide. Up until now it is unclear what effect this has on the global water cycle. In this study the output of two GFDL model experiments were thoroughly investigated and used in the moisture tracking model WAM-2layers, accounting for model runs in a past case in the end-20th century and future case...

Nearly all major glaciers in Greenland have reduced in size over the last two decades. An increase in the amount of ice transported from the Greenland ice sheet to the oceans is predicted following an increase in Arctic air and ocean temperatures. One of the last glaciers with a floating ice shelf and draining a substantial area of the Greenland...

A vast majority (84%) of all countries in the world have coastlines and 80-100% of their population resides within 100 km of the shoreline. Studies show a major growth in population in low-elevation coastal zones and a scenario of rising sea level may force millions of people to relocate. To deal with the increased frequency of extreme events...

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...

Accelerated sea level rise (SLR) is predicted to have multiple adverse impacts on the coastal zone, aggravating phenomena such as coastal erosion on sandy coasts. For climate change adaptation planning and informing policy, morphodynamic changes occurring at coastlines are becoming increasingly important. In this study, a calibrated Delft3D...
