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”

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!”

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”
