Giordano, Fabrizio (author)
In this study, plume experiments were conducted to mimic the thermodynamic conditions on Saturn's moon, Enceladus. The icy moon subsurface ocean and cracks in the surface have been simulated by using a liquid water reservoir and a narrow channel, while the low-pressure environment at Enceladus’ surface was achieved with a vacuum chamber. We...

Surgical aerosols in other words plumes are produced during thermal tissue destruction in medical operations. The cellular debris in the form of particulate matter may contain viruses and harmful chemical compounds which can lead to an infectious transmission in case of inhalation. <br/>The goal of this study was to design and produce an...

Buoyancy-driven plumes are natural phenomena that occur in widespread applications, such as geological flows or pollutant dispersion from a chimney. One characteristic of plumes is the entrainment process, where the plume stream drags in ambient fluid and mixes with the ambient fluid, and classic plume theory has used an entrainment coefficient...

The CO\textsubscript{2} Plume Geothermal (CPG) Consortium was created in March 2023 to demonstrate the potential and technical feasibility of CO\textsubscript{2} Plume Geothermal at candidate sites in an integrated academic and industry synergistic collaboration. Following 12 years of theoretical CPG research, the consortium will execute a field...

Aircraft emissions can pose a health threat by degrading air quality. The actual pollution footprint of aircraft is however not well understood. This research therefore explores the potential of performing near-runway measurements with low-cost sensor nodes to analyse the plume composition and pollutant contribution of individual aircraft. The...

This investigation focuses on the premixed conical flame, a mainstay of combustion diagnostics. While extensive studies have explored high-frequency oscillations in the canonical Bunsen flame, little attention has been given to low-frequency oscillations affecting flame fronts. This thesis aims to explain the origins of these oscillations and...

This study is part of an ongoing research project, which aims to increase the physical understanding of the plume formation on Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus. The experimental setup presented in this study is the third iteration of the physical models aiming to recreate the main plume characteristics, where in this study the effects of the channel...

Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

Since the pre-industrial era, methane has contributed as much as 0.5°C to global warming. With a global warming potential of 28-34 times that of CO2 over 100 years, and with 80 times the warming power of CO2 in the first 20 years, methane has a large impact on climate change. Measurements from the satellite instrument TROPOMI help inform on the...

The Cassini spacecraft, observing the Saturnian system for over 13 years, discovered aspects of the planetary system that were previously unseen. One such discovery is the eruption of geysers (plumes) from the Tiger Stripes on the surface of the icy moon Enceladus. An unexpected liquid water ocean exists underneath Enceladus’ icy crust (Postberg...

Deep-sea mining may be just a few years away and yet society is struggling to assess the positive aspects, such as increasing the supply of metals for battery production to fuel the green revolution, versus the potentially large environmental impacts. Mining of polymetallic (manganese) nodules from the deep ocean is likely to be the first...

For green energy transition, the industry seeks alternative resources for nickel and cobalt, the main ingredients for energy storage devices and other applications. Polymetallic nodules lying at the abyssal plain are rich in these mineral resources, which leads to an increased interest in deep-sea mining (DSM) of polymetallic nodules. During the...

Over the past decade, deep-sea mining (DSM) has received renewed interest due to scarcity of raw materials. Deep-sea mining has been spurred by the need for critical resources to support growing populations, urbanization, high-tech applications and the development of a green energy economy. Nevertheless, an improved understanding of how mining...

Flocculation between inorganic sediment, salt ions and microscopic organic<br/>matter present in the marine environment might play an important role in the<br/>dynamics of turbidity currents. The ability to predict, understand, and potentially<br/>leverage the effect of flocculation on turbidity currents will help to minimize the<br/>impact of...

Recently, deep-sea mining has acquired renewed interest from commercial companies due to a rise in the demand of minerals and metals. Deep-sea mining is focussed on different minerals and rare earth elements found in the oceans that are increasingly used in the manufacturing of goods and products related to renewable energy. In order to collect...

Research towards aquathermal energy solutions is still in a pioneering phase. Especially in urban environments, these solutions could potentially form the missing connection between heating supply and demand. This study focuses on the application of these solutions in the city canal waters in the largest city of the Netherlands, Amsterdam ....

Due to the increased demand for materials like cobalt and nickel, there is an interest to mine polymetallic nodules from the deep-sea. These nodules are abundantly distributed along the abyssal plains, e.g., the Clarion Clipperton Zone (CCZ) in the North East Pacific. These nodules lay spread on top of a seabed consisting of very fine clayey...

Since the 13th of October 2017, the Tropospheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) aboard ESA’s Sentinel 5-Precursor (S5-P) satellite enables daily global measurements of carbon monoxide (CO) total column con- centrations at an unprecedented spatial resolution of 7×5.6 km. TROPOMI has the ability to detect distinct pollution plumes, arising from...
