Water inSight provides insight into the ‘water machine’ that forms the basis of the Dutch polder landscape. Authors Inge Bobbink and Suzanne Loen approach the polder landscape from a landscape-architectonic point of view, using technical and spatial analysis drawings, images, plans and experiments to visualise the Netherlands and its water...

New ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal areas or shallow coastal waters. The quay wall and terminal yard are raised to a level well above mean sea level to assure flood safety. The resulting ‘convention-al terminal’ requires large volumes of fill material often dredged from the sea, which is costly. The terminal yard of a ‘polder...

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...

New ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal areas or in shallow coastal waters. The quay wall and terminal yard are raised to a level well above mean sea level to assure flood safety. The resulting ‘conventional terminal’ requires large volumes of good quality fill material often dredged from the sea, which is costly. The alternative...

The purpose of this contribution is to look at different planning contexts into which decisions about subsoil engineering presently need to be integrated. There are many ways of doing as well as theorizing spatial planning; and planning practice is constantly changing. Next to that, soil legislation and management has become more important to...

Hoes, O.A.C. (author)
The subject of this dissertation is flooding in lowland areas caused by intense precipitation. The probability of flooding will increase when we do not adapt our water systems. For example because of expected changes in climate and the consequences of subsidence, sea level rise, and urbanization. While the probability of flooding will increase,...

Carton, L.J. (author)
In this thesis, the practice of map-making and map use is studied among actors involved in spatial planning and water management. The socio-technical mechanisms between knowlegde production and policymaking in Dutch regional planning make up the central object of study, with map images as observable artefacts. In many instances, maps seem to be...

Visser, B. (author)
This study aims at aiming an insight into the rainfall in the Netherlands with regard to the determination of the desirable capacity of draining-mills. With this end in view a statistical investigation has been made of the data of the daily quantities of rain during the years 1890 up to 1939 inclusive, at Boskoop, Leeghwater and Hoorn. First of...

More than 35% of the world’s population live within 100 km of the coast. Groundwater resources in these areas are the main source for domestic, industrial and agricultural use. Worldwide, deltaic areas are under stress due to climate change, sea level increase and decrease in fresh water availability. In addition, in deltaic coastal areas around...

Schuetze, T. (author)
The existing water management in Dutch polders is based on independent water systems for each polder. These are featuring artificial stabilized ground and surface water levels. As a result of the local climate the water levels in the polders are not continuously at a constant level. To maintain a stable water table in the polders, the surplus of...

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...

Van Veen, J. (author)
Historical overview of hydraulic engineering in the Netherlands until 1960. The author wrote the main part of this book during the second world war. The author (1893-1959) advocated at that time strong improvement of the Dutch sea defences, but this was politically not accepted. For that he used the pseudonym "Dr. Cassandra". After 1953 he...
