Happy to announce that our predictions for what will happen to the RMD in the future is now published at Anthropocene Coasts. We have found that dredging will be the major driving force in the Rhine-Meuse delta area in the future and the effects will completely overwhelm climate change impacts. This trend is also identifiedContinue reading “New publication: Climate change and human influences on sediment fluxes and the sediment budget of an urban delta”

New publication: Anthropogenic Effects on the Contemporary Sediment Budget of the Lower Rhine-Meuse Delta Channel Network
Thanks to a great team of co-authors we’re gaining new understanding of the Rhine-Meuse delta and how its sediment is behaving! PLAIN LANGUAGE SUMMARY: Deltas need sufficient sediment to grow with sea-level rise and counteract natural and human-induced subsidence. A sediment budget quantifies if a delta is net gaining sediment or if it is losingContinue reading “New publication: Anthropogenic Effects on the Contemporary Sediment Budget of the Lower Rhine-Meuse Delta Channel Network”
New publication: The vulnerability of tidal flats and multi-channel estuaries to dredging and disposal
Very happy to announce that my MSc thesis experiments have been published as part of an exciting paper about the effects of dredging and dumping on sandy multi-channel estuaries such as the Western Scheldt. Had a great time working on this with the other authors especially Wout van Dijk . Stay tuned for what willContinue reading “New publication: The vulnerability of tidal flats and multi-channel estuaries to dredging and disposal”
NCR Days 2021
In February 2021, I took part in the NCR Days 2021 presenting our future sediment budget for the Rhine-Meuse Delta. The conference was the most fun online conference so far! A big well done to the team at Twente University for organising. You can see my runner-up for best presentation below:
First Pandora Magazine of 2021 is out!
The Pandora magazine covers diversity, inclusion and equality topics at Utrecht University and last year I joined the Editorial Board of the magazine. It features an article I wrote about the famous “I Am A Scientist” documentary and a screening we (Young Women of Geosciences) hosted last year . It also features articles from myContinue reading “First Pandora Magazine of 2021 is out!”
We Belong @UU
Back in December I took part in socially distanced filming for a campaign called We Belong @UU organised by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team at Utrecht University. The campaign communicates personal stories of staff and students concerning EDI. It gave me a great chance to reflect back on my time at UU and theContinue reading “We Belong @UU”
Sedimentation strategies for Deltas: join our workshop on December 4th
River deltas worldwide are at risk of sinking due to subsidence, sea-level rise and anthropogenic activities. Growing populations in delta regions are at significant risk. But what can we do about it? In the interactive online workshop “Sedimentation Strategies for Deltas” we will investigate the options available for deltas to increase sedimentation and build land to stay above sea level. During the workshop we will discussContinue reading “Sedimentation strategies for Deltas: join our workshop on December 4th”
Join our EGU 2021 Session!
EGU 2021 will take place online this year. Together with the power team of Frances Dunn, Anne Baar, Lisanne Braat and Iris Moller we are hosting a session about delta and estuary dynamics. You can submit an abstract to our session here: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/session/40300
