The Earth's surface is a complex landscape that is essential for a wide range of applications, from urban planning to environmental monitoring. Digital models of the Earth's surface are generated through mathematical calculations using elevation data collected from various sources and the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) which captures the bare earth...

Estimating sea surface height using cross-track interferometry (XTI) requires high sensitivity because the ocean surface signal is in the order of 10 cm. In addition, the interferometer requires a temporal delay of a few milliseconds to ensure the coherency of the moving ocean surface. We show that a squinted line of sight (LoS), in...

Identifying the vegetation and topographic variables influencing the isotopic variability of xylem water of forest vegetation remains crucial to interpret and predict ecohydrological processes in landscapes. In this study, we used temporally and spatially distributed xylem stable water isotopes measurements from two growing seasons to examine...

Our awareness of ice caps’ and mountain glaciers’ sensitivity to climate change has driven major advances in the application of remote sensing techniques during the past decade. Regarding ESA’s SARIn altimeter CryoSat-2, processing the full waveform to generate swaths of elevation estimates has become standard...

Identification of ontogenetic age classes plays an important role in the fields of zoology, palaeontology and archaeology, where accurate age classifications of (sub)fossil remains are a crucial component for the reconstruction of past life. Textural ageing—the identification of age-related bone surface textures—provides a size-independent...

Tidal flats play an important role in the geomorphological and biological dynamics of coasts. Research on the morphological evolution of tidal flats constitutes one of the key research issues pertaining to the sustainability of coastal ecosystems and related coastal defense issues. In this work, a novel indicator, the surface tidal trail (STT...

The Peninsular Malaysia Geodetic Vertical Datum 2000 (PMGVD2000) inherited several deficiencies due to offsets between local datums used, levelling error propagations, land subsidence, sea level rise, and sea level slopes along the southern half of the Malacca Strait on the west coast and the South China Sea in the east coast of the...

Surface melt is an important driver of ice shelf disintegration and its consequent mass loss over the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Monitoring surface melt using satellite remote sensing can enhance our understanding of ice shelf stability. However, the sensors do not measure the actual physical process of surface melt, but rather observe the presence...

Given the considerable range of applications within the European Union Copernicus system, sustained satellite altimetry missions are required to address operational, science and societal needs. This article describes the Copernicus Sentinel-6 mission that is designed to provide precision sea level, sea surface height, significant wave height,...

This article aims to extent the notion of port-cities and counter the mainstream narrative that port and city, in cases like Rotterdam, have become disunited by reviewing its public spaces in their unique port-city characteristics. These characteristics can be found by systematic approaching and describing public spaces as biographies of place,...

Climate scientists routinely rely on averaging over time or space to simplify complex information and to concisely communicate findings. Currently, no consistent definitions of 'warm' or 'cool' seasons for southern Australia exist, making comparisons across studies difficult. Similarly, numerous climate studies in Australia use either...

Infrastructure, industry and extraction have greatly reshaped the North Sea over the last five decades. These specific elements played and still play a vital role in the growth and evolution of the North Sea and its adjacent countries. Among all the fishing and oil industry have become highly governmentally influenced machines and are imposing...

China is facing the dual challenges of urbanization and motorization(Jing, 2008). The poorly organized urban centers and traditional residential planning are unable to meet the increasingly diverse demand of people. To solve these problems, the TOD model and the emerging community living circle are being favored by policy makers. Promoting urban...

The Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier is an icon of Dutch hydraulic engineering. Downstream of the barrier, large local erosion pits (scour holes) have formed adjacent to the applied bed protection after its construction. It was expected during the design phase that these would develop, but both the magnitude of the scour hole depth as well as...

The water vapor content in the atmosphere can be reconstructed using the all-weather condition troposphere tomography technique. In common troposphere tomography, the water vapor of each voxel is represented by an unknown parameter. This means that when the desired spatial resolution is high or study area is large, there will be a huge number of...

Fabricating large areas of geometrically complex and precisely controlled topographies is required for the studies of cell behavior on patterned surfaces. Direct laser writing (DLW) is an advanced 3D-fabrication technique, which facilitates the manufacturing of structures within various scales (from a few hundred nanometers to millimeters)....

The needs and interests for 3D data based on large-scale topography are increasing. A wide variety of these 3D data needs have emerged in multiple domains and for many different applications. Though, research have shown that the interoperability of this 3D data nowadays still is a challenging task. Many barriers are caused by different...

Patients with orthopaedic implants often experience implant-associated infections (IAI), one of the most prominent causes for implant failure. IAIs are caused by pathogens adhering to the implant surface. One method to prevent IAIs is through the use of surface topography modifications. Cellular behaviour has been shown to be influenced by...

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is one of the most common inspection methods in the semiconductor industry and in research labs. To extract the height of structures using SEM images, various techniques have been used, such as tilting a sample, or modifying the SEM tool with extra sources and/or detectors. However, none of these techniques...
