Conceptual models in hydrology are widely used, allow for easy interpretation and require little data. Machine learning models in hydrology often outperform conceptual models but lack the ease of interpretability, require large amounts of data and and do not obey physical laws. Hybrid approaches aiming to combine the advantages of both...

For the past 2000 years river training works have been performed on the Dutch rivers. These training works have shaped the river system of today. Another result of the river training works, especially over the last two centuries, is a decrease in biodiversity. To protect the biodiversity some floodplains in the Netherlands have been classified...

The Netherlands is confronted with challenges such as traffic congestion, overburdened public transportation, and obesity. These issues could potentially be mitigated by elevating the cycling modal share. To attain this objective, the Dutch central government has introduced a range of strategies aimed at fostering commuter cycling. This study...

The Bui Dam, the second-largest hydropower dam in Ghana, plays a significant role in the sustainable energy mix of the country. It is managed by the Bui Power Authority (BPA) and has a capacity of hydro-clean generation of 404MW, contributing to 17% of the country’s total electricity generation. However, decision-making at the dam lacks the use...

Featuring the most direct and closest social relationships, the household plays a crucial role in influencing an individual's wants, needs, and behavior. However, the role of intra-household decisions in the connection between the built environment and activity-travel behavior has not been systematically analyzed. This paper adds to the...

In this paper we assume that people could travel in some cases to escape from something, such as their family, colleagues, or residential or work area. The concept of escaping as a driver to travel complements both the mainstream assumption that travel is a derived demand and the idea that people sometimes travel for the fun of it (and thus...

The long-term sediment demand of the Dutch coast is integral to the current Dutch Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management policy. The Coastal Genesis 2 research programme was initiated to address the sustainability of this policy under sea level rise by focusing on key uncertainties in the conceptual model of the sediment demand of the Dutch...

Climate change causes an increase of precipitation intensity and frequency, which leads to an increased amount of landslide occurrences. Therefore, there is an urgent need for prevention measures. The risk of landslide occurrence can be mitigated by decreasing the pore water pressure in a hillslope, e.g. by drainage from the subsurface. The...

This paper reviews approaches to utility registration and analyzes the Croatian utility cadaster and utility registration regulations. In Croatia, utility networks are registered in the national utility cadaster administered by State Geodetic Administration, with private companies obliged to send reports on all changes to the utility networks...

Although games are frequently described as ‘engaging’, what this means exactly continues to be subject of debate in game literature. Engagement is often defined through related concepts like immersion and positive emotions. However, this neglects the fact that applied games aim to provide more than an entertaining experience, and that engagement...

Institutional modelling is a branch of agent-based modelling and simulation (ABMS) that pays special attention to the social structure by incorporating institutions into these models. Institutions, in this regard, are the rules of the system that shape individual behaviour and interaction. Institutional modelling can make use of the...

While agent-based modeling (ABM) has become one of the most powerful tools in quantitative social sciences, it remains difficult to explain their structure and performance. We propose to use artificial intelligence both to build the models from data, and to improve the way we communicate models to stakeholders. Although machine learning is...

This discussion paper proposes a conceptual model for the factors influencing ethical concerns regarding accessibility, building on the idea that people should have a minimum level of access to some destinations (founded in the ethical principle of sufficientarianism), and secondly from the idea that differences in levels of accessibility...

Coastal aeolian sediment transport is influenced by supply-limiting factors such as sediment sorting by grain size. Sorting processes can cause a coarsening of the bed surface and influence the formation of aeolian ripples. However, it is not fully understood what influence sorting processes have on the magnitude of this transport. In this study...

Accessibility is usually evaluated using indicators calculated from spatial data. However, perceived accessibility, defined as the perceived potential to participate in spatially dispersed opportunities, is often poorly reflected by these calculated measures. This paper sets out to explain the mechanisms that lead to these mismatches. A...

Massive quantities of the pelagic brown macroalgae Sargassum spp. (sargassum) have been invading the Caribbean and West African shores since 2011, causing devastating effects on the coastal ecosystem and local economy. Little is known about sargassum beaching dynamics and the capacity of the coastal system to naturally remove beached...

Hydraulic properties of aquifer systems are usually estimated by conducting field experiments, which are called aquifer tests. Different approaches have been applied to simulate the drawdown data, such as graphical type curves, analytical solutions, and grid-based models. Since the type of groundwater system varies greatly from location to...

Migrants are moving in great numbers towards urban areas as a result of urbanization and drivers such as political-, economical- and climate crises. The influx of new people brings new challenges for cities and municipalities to provide for a suitable environment for new and existing citizens whilst preventing adverse effects to occur. Current...

Intertidal bars are naturally occurring morphological features along the waterline of sandy beaches. Present quantitative knowledge on intertidal bar behavior is limited, due to the scarcity of data resources and the limitations of traditional survey techniques. To investigate and quantify the cross-shore morphologic behavior of intertidal...

Citizen engagement with open government data (OGD) can enhance the effectiveness of governments and improve not only the quality of public policy making but also public services provisioning and ability to address societal problems. Although previous research gives insight into citizen’s drivers and inhibitors for engaging with OGD, they have...
