Dynamics of rainwater lenses on upward seeping saline groundwater [PhD thesis]
Eeman, Sara \ 2017
seepage - rain - water - groundwater - saline water - vegetation

Zoet water is in het algemeen schaars in vaak dichtbevolte kustgebieden. Grondwater is veelal zout, waardoor landbouw en zoetwater natuur in laaggelegen gebieden (op of onder de zeespiegel) afhankelijk zijn van een dunne zoetwaterlens die zich als gevolg van een neerslagoverschot vormt op het zoute kwelwater. Het begrijpen van de dynamiek van dergelijke lenzen is essentieel in het licht van duurzame ontwikkeling van voedselproductie en natuur onder veranderende omstandigheden zoals zeespiegelstijging en klimaatverandering. De mengzone tussen een dergelijke lens en het zoute grondwater is substantieel, waardoor aanname van een scherp grensvlak niet realistisch is en het gedrag van de mengzone ook van belang is. In dit proefschrift hebben we het gedrag van deze dunne lenzen en bijbehorende mengzone beschreven.

From harmful to useful algae [PhD thesis]
Blaas, Harry \ 2017
algae - algae culture - adverse effects - nitrogen - phosphorus - rivers - eutrophication - waste water treatment - europe

The objective of this study is to analyse past and future trends in nutrient export by rivers to European seas with a focus on the role of algae. Three types of algae will be distinguished: (1) harmful algal blooms in coastal seas, (2) cultivation of micro-algae on land for the production of proteins, lipids and fatty acids, and (3) cultivation of multi cellular algae in seaweed farms for human consumption or other products.
