Global change processes such as sea level rise and the increasing frequency of severe storms threaten many coastlines around the world and trigger the need for interventions to make these often densely-populated areas safer. Mangroves could be implemented in Nature-Based Flood Defense, provided that we know how to conserve and restore these...

Phase unwrapping, also known as ambiguity resolution, is an underdetermined problem in which assumptions must be made to obtain a result in SAR interferometry (InSAR) time series analysis. This problem is particularly acute for distributed scatterer InSAR, in which noise levels can be so large that they are comparable in magnitude to the...

The Wadden Sea is the largest system of tidal flats and barrier islands in the world extending from the northern Dutch coast to the coast of Denmark. Such a large natural area is ofgreat importance to bothhuman beings and ecosystems. Over 10,000 species of flora and fauna are found in theWadden Sea being a perfect habitat due to the relatively...

Flooding is one of the most frequently occurring and damaging natural disasters worldwide. Quantitative flood risk management (FRM) in the modern context demands statistically robust approaches (e.g. probabilistic) due to the need to deal with complex uncertainties. However, probabilistic estimates often involve ensemble 2D hydraulic model runs...

For hundreds of years, ditch water levels in Dutch agricultural peatlands have been lowered to increase the loading capacity of farming parcels. This lowering results in groundwater levels in the middle of the parcels that fall a few decimeters under the ditch levels. When the groundwater level in a peat soil is lowered, newly uncovered peat is...

Pearl river delta is undoubtedly the most promising area and a very dynamic tidal zone, especially in the southeast part of the delta, Zhuhai province, Modaomen estuary. The whole area of Zhuhai is a remote island scattered outside the mouth of the Pearl River,when after several generations of reclamation and these days, 20% of marshland in...

The region of het Groene Hart in the Netherlands currently faces many issues, of which soil subsidence is the most urgent. The problems are mainly caused by the dairy industry, which covers 80% of the region. A fundamental change in land-use is therefore needed. In this paper first the Groene Hart region will be described and explored, after...

Drought and subsidence are two out of several water-related urban climate adaptation challenges many cities in the Netherlands currently face. Drought is expected to increase in frequency and extent due to climate change. Therefore, drought is likely to further pressurize (subsiding) urban areas in the coming decades. Although the impact of...

Subsidence can be observed at various locations in the Netherlands. While it can be due to both shallow and deep subsurface processes, the shallow subsidence is mainly a result from compaction, oxidation and/or groundwater drainage. Moreover, for grasslands on organic soils, in particular pastures on drained peat soils, the vertical position of...

After decades of oil, gas, and coal exploitation, we have learned about some of the unpleasant aftereffects of subsurface resource exploration. Adverse long-term impacts, some known during exploration periods, others only afterwards, may include induced seismicity, land subsidence, or even sinkholes. While geothermal is currently seen as a...

The Tehran basin has been increasingly affected by subsidence during the last few decades due to groundwater withdrawal. Hence, the study of the strength of the power towers (PTs) of transmission lines, as vital structures, is an important subject. In this paper, the persistent scatterer interferometry (PSI) method was applied on data stacks...

In this paper, land subsidence susceptibility was assessed for Shahryar County in Iran using the adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) machine learning algorithm. Another aim of the present paper was to assess if ensembles of ANFIS with two meta-heuristic algorithms (imperialist competitive algorithm (ICA) and gray wolf optimization ...

Land subsidence is a complicated phenomenon, relevant in the Holocene coastal-plain of the Netherlands, that can be triggered by many different mechanisms and components. To cope with the effects of land subsidence, detailed information on which mechanisms are causing subsidence and its variation over time and space are needed. Subsidence...

Shanghai sea dikes are built to protect shorelines, factories, inland buildings and other vulnerable coastal areas against wave action and storm surge. For this reason, there is an urgent need to check whether sea dike in Shanghai can function well. The intuitive influences are sea level rise, severe storm surge, and land subsidence, which...

The Netherlands has for long been witnessing problems due to subsidence. While urban infrastructure is mostly safeguarded from differential settlement by deep pile foundations, the same cannot be said about greenhouses. The greenhouses of the Netherlands has enabled the country to become the largest exporter of vegetables, second only to the...

Delta cities all around the world are under pressure from different forms of climate change effects. Soil subsidence as a result of peat oxidation, and anthropogenic loading of the soil. The soil in many of the heavily urbanised deltas around the world is subsiding faster than the see level is rising as a result of climate change. Few people are...

Subsidence is affecting different parts of the Netherlands. The strongest subsidence is observed in the province of Groningen due to ongoing natural gas extraction. Subsidence is also observed at several locations in the province of South Holland, where the processes of peat oxidation, soil compaction and the withdrawal of groundwater are at the...

Kampung Air is set in the city of Semarang in Indonesia. This city is facing enormous problems due to land subsidence. Kampung Melayu, which is the location of this project, has a rich history based on trade and commerce. However, now it is mostly abandoned and not functioning anymore. This project tries to deal with these problems by creating a...

Momentum transport by boundary layer turbulence causes a weak synoptic-scale vertical motion. The classical textbook solution for the strength of this Ekman pumping depends on the curl of the surface momentum flux. A new solution for Ekman pumping is derived in terms of the curl of the geostrophic wind and a term that depends in a nontrivial...
