International Aquatic Sciences Meeting, Granada
From 22-27 February, the International Aquatic Sciences Meeting will be held. During this yearly meeting, around 3000 scientists from all over the world will join in Granada to discuss the latest scientific developments about all aspects of ‘water’.
First step in adaptive delta plan for Bangladesh
Recently, the first joint workshop was organised in Dhaka, Bangladesh to identify possible measures for the Bangladesh delta plan. It resulted in a series of measures to limit flooding, improve river and coastal management, and prevent water shortages. This was the first important step in the development of an adaptive delta plan for Bangladesh that is intended to result in a sustainable, habitable and economically developed delta area between now and 2100.
Erosion pits in the Old Meuse and Dordtse Kil rivers
It is too easy to conclude that the closure of the Haringvliet inlet is the only factor explaining the erosion pits in the Old Meuse and Dordtse Kil rivers, explains Kees Sloff, a river morphologist with Deltares, at the 'Deltawater now and later' conference.
Clothing industry must use fewer harmful fibres
In itself, installing a filter in washing machines to remove microplastics from clothing is a good step. But it is not enough.
Study of new perspective on water management
Water management should focus more on how robust different areas are in terms of coping with floods and drought. A robust system means that we can deal better with extreme events. High river discharges and long periods of drought will occur more frequently as climate change continues and inflicts increasing levels of damage.
Extra filter in washing machines welcomed
‘It is a good thing that a special filter is being developed to clean up water from washing machines before it enters the drain. A filter of this kind can remove microplastics released from synthetic clothing during washing from the water before it gets to the sea.’
Design of new coastal defence system to stop erosion in Georgia
Deltares is working with the Technital & Saunders group on the design of a new coastal defence system to protect the Batumi Coast in Georgia against erosion.
Master class for Lake Kivu, Rwanda
Four Rwandan experts from the Lake Kivu Monitoring Programme (a part of the Rwanda Energy Group, Ministry of Infrastructure) recently spent four days following a master class at Deltares with the aim of improving the management of increased methane extraction from the deeper levels of Lake Kivu.
Deltares supplies knowledge for Dutch Dikes book
The latest book about dikes, ‘Dutch Dikes’, which was written by LOLA Landscape Architects, was based in part on knowledge supplied by Deltares. Maaike Bos (a landscape architect) and Harry Schelfhout (a dike safety expert) from Deltares contributed expertise during the past two years relating to dikes, safety, landscape architecture and innovative developments.
Dutch scientists prove: the 1962 Alcatraz Escape was possible
On 11 June 1962, three prisoners escaped from the heavily guarded prison island of Alcatraz just north of San Francisco. Where did their handcrafted rubber boat take them that night?
