Polders in the Taihu basin have a history of over two thousand years. The low-lying topography and dense water network create convenient geographical conditions for the reclamation of polders. Later, with the rapid population growth, mulberry-dike-fish-pond was constructed in order to make full use of the limited land resources, which is a...

The Ems Dollart estuary is facing high levels of turbidity, which hinders the growth of algae and impacts the entire ecosystem. In recent years, turbidity has increased here with 0.5 to 3% per year between 1990 and 2010, corresponding to a doubling of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) within 24 years for the upper bound of 3%. This trend is...

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...

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...

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....

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...
