    (2016-04-15) SAR Retracking in the Arctic: Development of a year round Arctic SAR retracker system
    Schulz, A. (author)
    The sea level determination in the Arctic brings challenges with it, due to its high seasonality, varying surface types and scarce in-situ observations. By developing a year round retracker system with an implementation of a bias removal strategy, the Arctic sea level determination is improved. Through the analysis of the seasonal performance of retrackers, an insight into the behaviour of empirical and physical retrackers is gained that can be used in the selection process of optimal retrackers....................

    (2016-04-15) Counteracting Socio-spatial Segregation through Architectural Verwandlung
    De Geus, L.I. (author)
    One of the places where the phenomenon of socio-spatial segregation is most evident and tangible is the city of São Paulo in Brazil, which is also known as “the city of walls.” I developed an architectural concept based on philosopher Elias Canetti’s concept of Verwandlung that relates the social and mental levels of segregation with the spatial dimension of the architectural project. As ‘empathic metamorphosis’, Verwandlung for the human subject implies both an internal transformatio....................

Rotterdam is known as the ‘city of architecture’ in the Netherlands and actively started promoting....................
    (2016-04-15) (N)Ergens weer als thuis
    Al Temimi, A. (author)
    Asielzoekers leven in feite in de schaduw van de samenleving. Ze zijn er wel, maar wie deze mensen zijn, waar ze zijn en hoe zij leven is vaak onbekend. Het effect van de opvangfase is levensbepalend voor asielzoekers. De opgedane ervaring in de opvangfaciliteiten, hetzij positief of negatief, reflecteert zich uiteindelijk in de Nederlandse samenleving. Een aantal voorbeelden zijn: wederzijdse angsten tussen asielmigranten en de Nederlandse samenleving, psychische aandoeningen en mede daardoor e....................
    (2016-04-15) A research to decrease the duration of the lifting phase for the Jumbo J-class, focussing on heeling
    Kommer, J. (author)
    For offshore installation projects Jumbo uses her J-class heavy lift crane vessels. The objects that need to be installed offshore are carried at deck or in the ship's hull. At location the object is lifted by the on-board heavy lift crane and slewed to the side of the ship. From the final overboard position the object can be lowered to the seabed. When the load is displaces by the slewing crane, the equilibrium of moments is disrupted and the ship will roll or heel. To reduce this moment change....................
    (2016-04-14) Together: Participatory methods in Architectural Design: creating public values for urban regeneration
    Munoz Aparici, M. (author)
    Participation is a commonly used word in planning and architecture nowadays. Nevertheless, it seems that few care to understand the complexities and limita- tions of participation. Participation has often been misused for political purpo- ses accepting it as mere feedback from citizens, using voting systems and,exhi- bitions of nished products that did not imply any real and lasting interaction with the will of the public. Many have focused on participation as an “answer” while it should be ....................

    Vos, Bart de
    On the 18th of September 2014 the United Nations Security Council met in its first emergency meeting on a public health crisis. The reason for this meeting was to discuss and find an appropriate response to the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The response came in the form of resolution 2177 and 69/1, which mandated the United Nations Mission for Ebola Emergency Response. A mandated health crisis mission is unprecedented in international politics and can be seen as a watershed moment. Th....................

    Pagura, Guillermo Gabriel
    Given the impact of the actions carried out by world leaders and heads of State, it has always been of academic interest to elucidate what factors lead them to act in one way or another. With the aim of finding convincing explanations for political behaviour, this work goes over the traditional International Relations approaches, pointing out their inadequacy for this case. Drawing on the contributions of Political Psychology and borrowing tools from Content Analysis this work proposes to look a....................
    (2016-04-14) To adapt or not to adapt: A study into the adaptability of the urban environment
    Deurloo, T.J.C. (author)
    The climate and the urban systems are changing, leading to new challenges and opportunities in the urban environment. Adaptation to these challenges is needed, using the vulnerability assessment areas that are vulnerable can be identified. Vulnerability is the likelihood a system experiences harm and is the combination of both risks and adaptability. Finding adaptability can be hard and is not straightforward, therefor this thesis aims to operationalize adaptability for the current urban environ....................
    (2016-04-14) Model-based leak localization in small water supply networks
    Moors, J. (author)
    Small leaks in water supply networks often remain undiscovered, resulting in large amounts of lost water. Moreover, small leaks can grow larger over time and may result in pipe bursts, having negative consequences for the surroundings. An automatic leak localization method is required to decrease the search area and hence localize small leaks earlier. In this research, the automatic leak localization method of Quevedo et al. (2011) is validated in DMA Leimuiden (the Netherlands). A prerequisite ....................

    Bomhof, B. (author)
    Garfield Park is a neglected neighborhood in between the city center and the suburbs of Chicago. During the 60s the white middle class moved out to the suburbs to live the “American Dream”. Poor black people moved in and at the same time crime started to rise. Right now the citizens are suffering a live full of poverty and are suppressed by gangs that call the shots and creating a culture of fear. However, despite of the misery, they still have their Afro-American culture, which is the herit....................

    (2016-04-14) De invloed van sociale media op de reguliere geschreven media Een descriptief en comparatief onderzoek naar Twitter
    Wielen, M.J.E. van der
    With the growing influence of social media in our daily lives, we even tend to adapt our language to social media. But the question remains if, reversely, the language we use on social media influences the langauge we use in our daily or professional lives. In this study I try to define the characteristics of the language used on Twitter. As a startingpoint I take the characteristics used in previous studies about language use in new media such as MSN and Texting. To determine if these character....................
