Understanding the spatiotemporal dynamics of surface water in varied, remote and inaccessible isolated floodplain lakes is difficult. Seasonal inundation patterns of these isolated lakes can be misestimated in a hydrodynamic model due to the short time of connectivity. The seasonal and annual variability of the Dinder River flow has great...

Background. The East Kolkata Wetlands in India (a Ramsar site) are sewage-fed, nutrient-rich water bodies successfully used for fish production. The vermiculated sailfin catfish, Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus (Weber, 1991), exotic to India, has invaded these wetlands. The management and control of this catfish has been hindered, because of...

The Lower Mara River and Wetland, Tanzania, is an important ecosystem and unique water resource for a vast semi-arid area. The river, an affluent of Lake Victoria, and the wetland are experiencing morphological and vegetation changes resulting in channel avulsions and wetland expansion. This study analyses the changes over the last 100 years...

Sediment deposition is one of the key mechanisms to counteract the impact of sea level rise in tidal freshwater wetlands (TFWs). However, information about sediment deposition rates in TFWs is limited, especially for those located in the transition zone between the fluvially dominated and tidally dominated sections of a river delta where...

The presence of vegetation has proven to increase peoples well-being and has multiple other benefits. Unfortunately, there is a lack of green in urban areas. Three solutions exist which could reintroduce green in cities and have a low footprint: green roofs, green facades and living wall system. Living wall systems are visible from street level...

Mangroves are extremely important from the ecological and socio-economic perspectives, but are degrading at an alarming rate nowadays. Besides direct clearance, hydrological alterations or climatic changes, chemical pollution could be a significant contributor of mangrove degradation. To understand chemical pollution in mangroves, the input and...

In the Osaka area in the 1880s, rice was grown mostly in dry fields in upland areas, and a few paddy fields were situated on the natural wet landforms along the major rivers and streams on the Osaka Plain. As the area developed, dry fields became irrigated, and the lowland fields were filled and converted to urban land uses. For the Osaka city...

The project takes its roots in the annual floods that Kochi, a coastal city in South India, is faced with. Along with these floods, the city faces rampant destruction of mangroves and an urban development that follows no particular structure. Being a highly fragile economic and political setup, it is safe to say that urban development takes...

The main objective of the thesis is to develop a design for a vertical green facade with integrated wastewater treatment. Vertical green systems provide a highly versatile type of facade that upgrades equally the building and it’s surroundings. The lack of quantitative benefits though, limit the motives for installing green facades to...

Traditionally, wetlands were considered separately from river basin systems. However, nowadays an integrated approach is becoming common practice in wetland-riverine watershed analysis and management. Such overall wetland management approach implies not only an adequate representation of relevant bio-physical parameters, but also of socio...

In dit rapport wordt een ‘Zoekkaart Kwelders en Waterveiligheid Waddengebied’ gepresenteerd. Deze zoekkaart geeft een beeld van locaties in het Waddengebied waar kwelders mogelijk kunnen bijdragen aan de waterveiligheid. Dit gaat zowel om bestaande kwelders als om het stimuleren van nieuwe kweldervorming. De zoekkaart is gebaseerd op de huidige...

Artificial wetlands are used at different locations in the world as a treatment facility for wastewater of different composition. In order of Rijkswaterstaat several artificial wetlands are constructed for road runoff treatment. In all cases the artificial wetland is preceded by a sedimentation basin / storage buffer. One of them is located...

Dit rapport geeft een samenvatting van relevant onderzoek naar de golfreducerende werking van kwelders en schetst de randvoorwaarden voor kweldervorming. Kwelders vormen een zone in het intergetijdengebied die de golven beïnvloeden door de weerstand van de bodem en de kweldervegetatie. De golfreducerende werking is afhankelijk van de hoogte en...
