Toelichting (Engels) This master thesis starts with the research outline in Chapter 2. In that chapter, backward piping erosion and self-potential monitoring are briefly introduced. Also, the principal idea behind applying time-lapse self-potential measurements to monitor backward erosion piping is explained. Chapter 3 describes the theoretical background of both phenomena in greater detail and an intuitive example of self-potential in a single microchannel is given. The last section of Chapter 3 then gives a solid, literature based, justification for using non-polarizable electrodes, instead of polarizable electrodes, for self-potential measurements. Subsequently, Chapter 4 describes how the self-potential was modeled on test dike. The test dike is a small dike built for large scale backward erosion piping experiments. Chapter 5 describes the methodology and results of self-potential monitoring on the test dike. Both the modeling and field experiment chapters are concluded with a discussion and recommendations section. The final chapter of this thesis sums up the conclusions and recommendations.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
