Digital Soil Mapping: Are piezometers useful for soil moisture mapping in space and time
The climate is changing and consequently, the Netherlands has been dealing with droughts and water shortages more frequently. The agricultural sector and water boards are especially being limited by the lack of accurate informatio ...

Litter and fire risk: field, lab and modeling
Leaf litter is the forgotten layer between soils and forestry, despite its strong importance for carbon storage, water fluxes, fire risk and fire impact. In this project you will work on one of the many unknowns regarding litter ...

Mapping multiple soil properties using state-of-the-art machine learning
A sub-discipline of soil science, Digital Soil Mapping (DSM), consists in producing computer-assisted soil maps by the use of statistical methods. This relies on the large availability of spatial data, computer power and GIS tools ...

Analysis of relationships between soil and landscape properties at different measurement scales
The soil and landscape are characterized by numerous properties, many of which influence each other. For example, we know that erosion rate depends on slope angle, soil type and vegetation cover and we know that the nitrate concen ...

Holocene evolution of rivers
Why do rivers develop certain river patterns? Why do some rivers meander, while others braid, anastomose or are laterally stable? Knowledge of why these river patterns form is very limited, while such knowledge is vital for long-t ...

The role of knowledge and interests in Dutch river restoration decision-making and evaluation
Over the past centuries, streams in many parts of the world were channelized and straightened, resulting in rapid drainage of catchments. In recent decades, it has been increasingly realized that stream channelization has consider ...

Mapping plant-available water holding capacity of the soil of sub-Saharan Africa to support crop production
In rainfed crop production, the root zone plant-available water holding capacity of the soil has a large influence on crop growth and yield response to management inputs, such as improved seeds and fertilisers. However, maps of th ...

Uncertain data: Probability distribution of soil properties in selected regions of the United States
Information on the probability distribution and variability of soil properties in a region can help to gain understanding of the soilís current state. Generally, the normal distribution is adopted to represent possible values of s ...

Constraining peat initiation by OSL-dating the pre-peat landscape
Large parts of the Pleistocene sand landscape in the Netherlands were once covered with peat. Most of these organic deposits were lost during peat reclamation and excavation during the past centuries. Many questions regarding the  ...
