Landscape Evolution: Fieldwork and Modelling Scenarios
Combine in a selected landscape (to be chosen) fieldwork (mapping, sampling, measuring) with LEM modelling and scenarios on the driving factors of landscape development or landscape evolution, with emphasis on e.g. sensitivity ana ...

Alluvial processes of terrace formation: OSL-IRSL dating and the different bleaching signals
Dating signals in river terrace sediments may vary following a river terrace down stream. The signal may become younger or older. What are the possible mechanisms? Can OSL techniques increase the knowledge about depositional proce ...

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 ...

Digital Soil Mapping: Random Forest spatial interpolation
The thesis research will begin with a literature review of machine learning for soil mapping. Next you will study the RFSI algorithm and apply it to a test dataset. This is all done in R, using existing scripts that need slight mo ...

Uncertainty propagation in global soil organic carbon stock estimation
There is much worldwide interest in accurate estimation of the global soil organic carbon stock. This is because soil carbon storage can help mitigate climate change. For instance, the 4per1000 initiative (https://www.4p1000.org/) ...

Validity of feldspar pIRIR dating - does light exposure prior to burial influence luminescence sensitivity and burial dose estimation?
Feldspar luminescence dating methods are widely used in Quaternary geology, especially for sediments where quartz OSL dating is not possible. For equivalent dose estimation, the single-aliquot regenerative (SAR) dose method is  ...

Shedding light on meander development in response to climate and people; OSL dating of sediments of the Overijsselse Vecht.
The Overijsselse Vecht is largely canalized and controlled by weirs. However, the ambition is to restore the stream to a half-natural lowland river. To make informed decissions, we need better insight in how the system functioned  ...

A new global assessment of soil nutrient balances
Global soil resources are under increasing pressure. Many subsistence farming systems are prone to an irreversible decline of soil fertility, whereas high input systems are resulting in environmental contamination. Discussions aro ...

A global soil map for environmental modelling
Recently a new global soil map for environmental modelling has been created. The basis for the soil map is a global model for soil formation based on an extensive literature review. The question that remains is whether we can impr ...

Soil management as a strategy for crop disease management
Crop disease management typically includes chemical control and plant breeding. However, in many cases crop diseases are related to soil conditions that may suppress or favour crop diseases. As a result soil management is a potent ...
