Only 1% of the surface water in the Netherlands has been classified as ‘good’, making it the EU member state with the worst quality of surface water (Didde, 2022). Polluted rivers cause problems such as worsened human health, reduced biodiversity, and poor soil fertility. To comply with the Water Framework Directive, there is an urgent need to...

The Nitrogen Crisis has become a focal point for the global community, with the related European policy stirring uncertainty in the agricultural sector. This political unrest has been clearly manifested in the Netherlands, while natural areas remain exposed to high emission levels. Society calls for systematic solutions to the nitrogen issue...

The Netherlands has created a large nitrogen pollution problem in its soils, which is harming biodiversity. By intensifying and industrialized farming, by importing animal feed for dairy production and fertilizer for crop farming, too much nitrogen has accumulated in the soil. Consequently, ecological processes are disturbed due to...

The UNEP-SETAC framework is the most well-known framework for including land use and land-use change (LULUC) impacts in life cycle assessment (LCA) in scientific literature. Yet issues regarding the framework’s validity have been recognized by several researchers and the framework has not been implemented in common LCA practices. Due to the need...

Land administration is the organized and systematic process of establishing and maintaining information about land. The efficient practice of land administration is anticipated to organize land registers for the provision of cross-sector and cross-border land administration services. Such a system should provide fundamental information regarding...

Brackish waters can be found in transition zones between freshwater rivers and saltier seas. These dynamic coastal landscapes harbor multiple functions such as housing, agriculture, nature, and industry. Because of climate change, existing borders between fresh and saline water - and between land and water - are becoming contested. Extreme...

Imaging and inversion with seismic data recorded with sources and receivers at the surface are powerful tools to infer knowledge about the subsurface. However, creating an image with seismic data is unfortunately not as easy as taking a picture with a smartphone. The estimated subsurface models in many situations are far from ideal due to the...

Hazelaar, Sander (author)
New insights into the landing behavior of bumblebees show an adaptive strategy where the optical flow expansion of the landing target is step-wise regulated. In this article, the potential benefits of this approach are studied by replicating the landing experiment with a quadrotor. To this end, an open-loop switching method is developed,...

Panichi, Edoardo (author)
In this thesis, we introduce a novel approach aimed at enhancing the jumping and landing capabilities of quadruped robots. Our method integrates both model-based and model-free strategies and features a behavioral cloning framework designed to reduce computational delays often encountered in trajectory optimization.<br/><br/>Initially, we build...

The Landing Platform Dock vessel is mainly designed to support amphibious operations in which landing operations play an important role. For operating landing craft the vessel has a well dock at the stern, designed to station several landing craft. Landing operations are restricted by the motions of the Landing Platform Dock vessel and by the...

Global Navigation Satellite System is a spatial data acquisition technique, mostly used in navigation and positioning. One of the main components of this technique is the satellite visibility, which refers to the connection between the satellite and the ground receiver. It is known that the GNSS positioning systems are not as performing in urban...

The increasing global population and in-country migration have a significant impact on global land use land cover (LULC) change, which reduces green spaces and increases built-up areas altering the near-surface radiation and energy budgets, as well as the hydrological cycle over an urban area. The LULC change can lead to a combination of hazards...

The decision to refine the existing content and to extend the scope of Edition I of the ISO 19152:2012 Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) is a response to requests from the international Land Administration (LA) community. This response has to be formally organised in accordance with ISO guidelines. This begins with gathering feedback...

ASCAT normalized backscatter (σ<sub>40</sub><sup>o</sup>) and slope (σ<sup>′</sup>) contain valuable information about soil moisture and vegetation. While σ<sub>40</sub><sup>o</sup> has been assimilated to constrain soil moisture, sometimes together with Leaf Area Index (LAI), this study is the first to assimilate σ<sup>′</sup> directly to...
