As one of the essential elements in the ecosystem, water often plays a key role in the formation process of the landscape. The polder landscape is one types of hydrological heritage landscape formed by the interaction of water and human beings. However, with the influence of climate change and human activities, the unique polder landscape has...

Aerosol is defined as the suspension of solid or liquid in the atmosphere. While some aerosols do not pose any serious threat to humankind, others have devastating effects. Thus, it is important to understand the type and distribution of these aerosols in the atmosphere. While traditional satellite data pose delays due to the huge amount of data...

The city of Rotterdam has a long and interesting history. It began as a small settlement on the River Rotte, at the place where the river met with the Nieuwe Maas. In 1270, the long dam was built in an attempt to reclaim the swampy land for development. In another word, since its origins, Rotterdam had to adapt to the natural circumstances of...

Biodiversity is declining worldwide because of population growth and the rising demand for goods. Biodiversity is needed for our ecosystem services which provide us with fresh water and medicine which means people are dependent on a healthy biodiversity. Cities want to greenify to battle the urban heat island effect and the bad water...

A significant increase in surface water salinization in low-lying deltas is expected globally due to saline groundwater exfiltration driven by rising sea levels and decreasing freshwater availability. Sustaining fresh water-dependent agriculture in such areas will entail an increased demand for fresh water flushing. Unfortunately, the...

Ongoing sea level rise combined with significant levels of land subsidence cause the everlasting need for reinforcements of the current coastal protection measures to ensure a certain level of coastal safety. Developing countries in the Asian regions tend to suffer from even more severe levels of land subsidence and often lack the financial...

The positive impact of green roofs for the users and the building performance has been demonstrated in research and practice throughout case studies from all over the world. Variations of these interventions have categorized the characteristics that will increase their performance under different climatic conditions. Not only for the building...

Long-term planning in urbanizing deltas has to deal with deep uncertainties in socio-economic development and climate change. Adaptive Delta Management (ADM) has been developed as an approach that acknowledges these and similar uncertainties. The Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 has, in principle, adopted the ADM approach, and it recognizes general...

Extensive usage of vital freshwater is highly undesirable in the current era of climate change and population growth. However, the 6 millionm3/y of brackish seepage that occurs in the deep Horstermeer Polder, located in between the cities of Amsterdam and Hilversumin the Netherlands, is mitigated by using up to 207 millionm3/y of freshwater....

De inrichting van het Nederlandse landschap moet wederom op de schop. Dit keer niet om de delta door ontginning bewoonbaar te maken of door ruilverkaveling efficënter in te richten voor de landbouw, maar om het land in deze tijd van klimaatverandering en bevolkingsgroei bestendiger en leefbaarder te maken voor mens, flora en fauna. Door...

To deal with large uncertainties about future climate and socio-economic developments, planners in deltas are adopting an integrative and adaptive planning approach referred to as Adaptive Delta Management (ADM). Bangladesh has used the ADM approach for the development of its adaptive plan; Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 (BDP 2100). The success...

It is no secret that the climate is changing, however, the severity and speed of this process is under debate. This leads to the question if and when we need to take action to protect the Netherlands against the effects of climate change. In order to deal with the uncertainties in policy- and decision-making, an adaptive approach is desirable....

In dit onderzoek zal antwoord worden gegeven op de vraag: Moet het falen van gemalen mee worden genomen in de watersysteemtoets? In de 6-jaarlijkse toetsing van de waterschappen wordt bepaald of het watersysteem voldoet aan de door de provincie opgestelde eisen voor wateroverlast. Op dit moment wordt er in deze toetsing geen rekening gehouden...

Vietnam is one of the five countries that is severely affected by the consequences of climate change. The extreme weather conditions and the increase of the sea level results in floods in the Mekong Delta, located in the South of Vietnam. Can Tho city, found in the heart of the Mekong Delta, is one of the cities that copes with water related...

We present a systematic approach for salinity sensor placement in a polder network, where the objective is to estimate the unmeasured salinity levels in the main polder channels. We formulate this problem as optimization of the estimated salinity levels using root mean square error (RMSE) as the "goodness of fit" measure. Starting from a...

Hiemstra, Wilma (author)
In an ongoing movement of urbanization, life seems to mostly happen in planned environments while the untouched part of the world sometimes seems to be disconnected from people’s lives. These landscapes can only be fully understood and valued by a physical, sensory experience of it, not by looking at 2D representations. What defines a person’s...

Surface water salinization in deltaic areas due to saline groundwater exfiltration is an important issue. Fresh water diverted from the rivers is used for flushing the canals and the ditches in coastal areas to remove the low quality saline surface water mixed with saline groundwater. Worldwide, deltaic areas are under stress due to climate...

The historic landscape is changing due to global warming. Valuable ecosystems are disappearing and have to be adapted or replaced in order to make the Dutch landscape future-proof. For this reason a new botanical research institute was proposed. The purpose will be the protection of local and global ecosystems along with providing research into...

As the landscape of the south western river delta in the Netherlands is increasingly urbanised, the processes of urbanisation and the dynamics of nature can no longer go in their separate ways. Measures for water safety, that over the course of recent history has been diverting, regulating, and controlling natural dynamics away from the urban...

In the process of urbanization, cities are becoming ever larger and denser, a process accompanied by a dramatic decrease in water permeable surface area. In addition to this, due to climate change, several areas are experiencing extended periods of heavy rainfall and serious droughts, resulting in an increasing water problem in many cities. <br/...
