For cotton cultivation, large amounts of water are necessary. One of the countries facing water challenges related to cotton cultivation is India. India experiences a monsoon weather pattern causing large amount of rain from June to October and no rain during the other months. One of the challenges India’s small holder cot- ton farmers face is...

Oceans cover a significant part of the Earth's surface. The coupling between the upper ocean and the atmosphere is very complicated with defied theoretical understanding, while it is essential for climate studies, weather prediction, and marine ecosystems. With the advent of spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems, surface signatures...

Ice jam events can be devastating for the environment, human infrastructure, and local population. During breakup season, it is of great importance to be informed about the river ice cover condition in order to mitigate breakup flood risk. The Athabasca River near FortMcMurray, located in Alberta, is particularly prone to ice jam events and...

Coastal dunes habitats are in the transition zone of marine and terrestrial ecosystems and therefore have high biodiversity in terms of animal and vegetation species. These species provide important ecosystem services to the human kind. Due to the development and operation of Maasvlakte 2, an increase of nitrogen emission is expected in the...

Falls in the elderly are a leading cause of injury, affecting one in three older adults annually. These fall incidents can lead to various disabling conditions, and therefore have the ability to affect one’s quality of life and independence. Not only are falls potentially taxing to the individual, they are also responsible for a big portion of...

Boron-doped diamond (BDD) is an electrode material applied in high end advanced oxidation processes and electrochemical sensing. BDD has a low background current, is robust and has a high affinity for the production of oxidizing radicals. BDD shows better degradation rates compared to competing electrode materials, and can also be used to detect...

This research has demonstrated the applicability of a DTS system to estimate the volumetric water content in saturated mud material. 2 samples of synthetically generated mud and 1 sample of natural mud from the port of Rotterdam were investigated, first by conventional methods and subsequently also with DTS. The system set-up and heating...

The functioning of the brain depends on the interplay between a large number of neurons. To understand the information processing in neuronal networks, we need tools to record the electrical activity of cells at high resolution. Microelectrode arrays (MEAs) are predominantly used to measure neuronal activity<br/>at high spatial and temporal...

New York was born in the pursuit of profit. Anglo-Dutch War, Independence War, Civil War, World War I and World War II, New York stands at the forefront of every major political change until it becomes the capital of the post-war world. New York opened its arms and embraced the groups that were excluded and expelled from other continents. It...

The master's thesis explores the possibilities of reusing abandoned post-industrial structures and objects of architectural heritage. Objects, which are usually difficult to renovate due to high costs and their poor physical condition, could be filled with new inflatable volumes and thus be filled with new space, function, and life. The work is...

The rise of citizen science has drawn policymakers' attention. With a shift towards participatory and transparent governance, linking policies to citizen science could contribute to create the evidence base and social acceptance for policy-making, and further counter-play populism and post-truth politics. This study aims to gain empirical...

This research focuses on using Sentinel-2 optical imagery to provide a means of high-resolution monitoring and evaluation of changes in Total Suspended Matter (TSM) concentration in the Brantas river basin. In situ spectral measurements as well as laboratory results show an extremely turbid nature of the Brantas River surface water. Current...

The director Andrei Tarkovsky once said, “The image is not a certain meaning, expressed by director, but an entire world reflected in a drop of water.” Different memories, experiences, and imaginary worlds influence perception. Therefore, interpretations of a drop of water can differ significantly. The project is a finite work, which left the...

When we talk about Rome it is difficult not to think about its waters, from the Tiber to the beautiful fountains that adorn the cities. The original territory, where Rome was founded, was incredibly marshy, due to the continuous flooding of the Tiber, but the Romans, thanks to their ingenuity, were able to reclaim the area through sewers and...

Remote retrieval of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) over the Earth’s surface is a critical component of monitoring the surface processes of our planet. NDVI is a widely used and useful indicator of vegetation health and quantity ­ however its retrieval using satellite data is hindered by the frequent presence of clouds in the Earth...
