In 2016, 54.5% of the world population was living in urban areas, whereas cities occupied only 2% of the total land. (United Nations: Department of Economic and Social Affairs, 2015). Climate change, inequality, peace and security issues are just some of the factors affecting urban areas and at the same time posing new challenges for urban...

To protect the hinterland, flood defences are often located on the border between water and land. This same border however is also an attractive place to live, which may hamper improvement of flood protections. Closing off a tidal (river) system, especially in case of little discharge, may in this case be a logical consideration. This would...

Up to 44% of EU residents are exposed to noise levels that are detrimental to health. In this context, vertical gardens could play an important role in architectural acoustics, where the main absorber material is the substrate soil. Plants have a beneficial effect for higher frequencies when planted in a large density. In this paper a vertical...

Historically, cities have been shaped by the transport system as it was considered as the most crucial element for economic growth. However, the advance of infomation technology broke the strong relationship between the city shape, the transport system and the economic growth. Since the flow of information is no longer dependant on the physical...

Estimating the length-of-stay, the number of days a bird can be expected to stay at a site, at stopover sites is critical to understanding the migration ecology and estimating the population sizes of birds as they move between breeding and non-breeding sites. Estimating the length-of-stay of migrating animals at stopover sites has an analogue...

Although mismanagement of groundwater resources has resulted in their destruction over centuries, climate change is speeding up this process more than ever. On the one hand, urgent action by government bodies is needed to address the challenge. On the other hand, a vast body of literature proves that bottom-up collective action, although...

Future air traffic control will have to rely on more advanced automation to support human controllers in their job of safely handling increased traffic volumes. A prerequisite for the success of such automation is that the data driving it are reliable. Current technology, however, still warrants human supervision in coping with (data)...

This paper explores the connections between farm modernisation, rural development and the resilience of agricultural and rural systems. The paper starts by ascertaining why agricultural and food systems need to change systemically. Evidence from case studies in fourteen countries is used to explore the possibilities for, and drivers and...

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is under increasing water stress. A rising water demand in the Kathmandu Valley is initiated by urbanisation with a rate of 4.7 % per year and amplified by a growing trend of per capita water consumption. At the same time, water availability seems to deteriorate. However, the severity of the problem is hardly...

The thesis project is a design exploration of a transition for Port of Rotterdam from a nature-based perspective into a productive landscape park. Productive landscape park is a place of co-existence where ecology and industry work together, rather against each other in order to remediate existing ecological damages in the port, promote...

Coastal zones are extensively used by humans for work, living and recreation. About three billion people live and work within a couple of hundred kilometers from a coastline. In addition the coast is an important breeding zone for marine species. This is also the case at Lake Bardawil. Lake Bardawil is a relatively large lake on the north-west...

Additional Thesis - All around the world many species are dying out locally or entirely due to interferences in their habitats. One of the big problems for marine life is the creation of migration barriers which preclude migrating species to complete their life cycle.Fish passages are a way for migrating species to get around obstructions in a...

Fossil fuels will run out in the foreseeable future. Out entire economic system is build upon fossil fuels and building up another base for this economic system is challenging. The only alternative for making materials that normally are derived from fossil fuels is the Bio-Based Economy. Materials in this way get made from biomass, such as sugar...

Granules enriched with anammox bacteria are essential in enhancing the treatment of ammonia-rich wastewater, but little is known about how anammox bacteria grow and multiply inside granules. Here, we combined metatranscriptomics, quantitative PCR and 16S rRNA gene sequencing to study the changes in community composition, metabolic gene...

This master thesis is an attempt to contribute to the understanding of urban water systems through the use of the urban metabolism (UM) framework. By developing steady-state models with STAN, a software used for material flow analysis (MFA), the urban water flows are quantified and analyzed as they enter the system boundary and are transformed...
