City Blueprints: 24 Indicators to Assess the Sustainability of the Urban Water Cycle
Climate change, population growth and increased consumption, coupled with urbanization, are all placing increased pressure on water management. This global challenge can often best be addressed atExpand
Do green roofs cool the air
Rapid urbanization and an increasing number and duration of heat waves poses a need to mitigate extremely high temperatures. One of the repeatedly suggested measures to moderate the so called urbanExpand
Adaptation Planning Support Toolbox: Measurable performance information based tools for co-creation of resilient, ecosystem-based urban plans with urban designers, decision-makers and stakeholders
TLDR
We developed and tested the Adaptation Planning Support Toolbox (APST) to fill this gap. Expand
Different approaches to assessment of design and management of sustainable urban water systems
Abstract The implications of sustainability on a construction level are quite well known, for example, with respect to the use of resources and emissions. On a higher level, sustainable developmentExpand
Evaluating the Infiltration Performance of Eight Dutch Permeable Pavements Using a New Full-Scale Infiltration Testing Method
Permeable pavements are a type of sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) technique that are used around the world to infiltrate and treat urban stormwater runoff and to minimize runoff volumes.Expand
High resolution rainfall – runoff measurement setup for green roof experiments in a tropical environment
Abstract. This article describes the measurement setup that is used for green roof experiments in a tropical environment, the required data treatment to obtain reliable values of rainfall, runoff andExpand
Intelligent SUBsurface Quality: Intelligent use of subsurface infrastructure for surface quality
This project focuses on the urban renewal of (delta) metropolises and concentrates on the question how to design resilient, durable (subsurface) infrastructure in urban renewal projects usingExpand
Alternative water management options to reduce vulnerability for climate change in the Netherlands
Urbanization, land subsidence and sea level rise will increase vulnerability of the urbanized low-lying areas in the western part of the Netherlands. In this article possibilities are explored toExpand
Stormwater quality characteristics in (Dutch) urban areas and performance of settlement basins
Stormwaters, flowing into storm sewers, are known to significantly increase the annual pollutant loads entering urban receiving waters and this results in significant degradation of the receivingExpand
The closed city as a strategy to reduce vulnerability of urban areas for climate change.
Urbanization, land subsidence and sea level rise will increase vulnerability to droughts in the urbanized low-lying areas in the western part of the Netherlands. In this paper a possibility isExpand
