Natural environments (NE) are promoted as places that support physical activity (PA), but evidence on PA distribution across various types and sizes of NE is lacking. Accelerometers and GPS-devices measured PA of Dutch general population adults aged 45–65 years (N=279). Five NE types were distinguished: ‘parks’, ‘recreational area’, ...

Background: Exacerbations constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Both bacterial infections, such as those with non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), and exposures to diesel engine emissions are known to contribute to exacerbations in COPD patients....

Noise is defined as 'unwanted sound.' Aircraft noise is one, if not the most detrimental environmental effect of aviation. It can cause community annoyance, disrupt sleep, adversely affect academic performance of children, and could increase the risk for cardiovascular disease of people living in the vicinity of airports. In some airports, noise...

Mobiliteitsexperts verwachten een groei van het wegverkeer, gekoppeld aan de economische groei, waardoor het verlies van reistijd in 2021 toegenomen zal zijn met 38% ten opzichte van 20151. Sinds eind 2014 nemen de files immers weer toe en de treinen zijn met name in de spits op een aantal trajecten heel vol. Voor de middellange termijn...

Flexibly anticipating the future. Cities interact permanently with their environment. Both that environment and cities themselves are liable to change. This dynamic entails uncertainties, challenges, and tests of innovation that cities have to be able to adapt to. It means that cities have to be able to anticipate the events that will affect...

Een bereikbare stedelijke omgeving is cruciaal voor een gezonde, dynamische en economisch vitale stad. Dat de bereikbaarheid in veel steden onder druk staat, is geen verrassing. Het aantal inwoners is in de afgelopen decennia aanzienlijk gegroeid en de economische activiteit is toegenomen. Logischerwijs is het aantal vervoersbewegingen daarmee...

Steden zijn permanent in interactie met hun omgeving. Zowel die omgeving als de steden zelf zijn veranderlijk. Deze dynamiek brengt onzekerheden, uitdagingen en vernieuwingsopgaven met zich mee, waar een stad adaptief mee moet omgaan. Het gaat erom dat een stad kan inspelen op datgene wat op haar afkomt, en kan omgaan met verandering. Dit vergt...

Adverse weather conditions regularly lead to severe congestion and large travel time delays on road networks all over the world. Different climate scenarios indicate that in the future adverse weather conditions are likely to become more frequent, last longer and will be more extreme. Although climate mitigation measures are being taken, it...

Energie is een van onze primaire levensbehoeftes en een belangrijke motor van de economie. Vanaf de negentiende eeuw halen we onze energie vooral uit fossiele brandstoffen. Met deze vrijwel onuitputtelijke bronnen is voor velen de welvaart enorm gegroeid. De laatste decennia is het echter duidelijk geworden dat uitstoot van broeikasgassen,...

Accurate modelling of mitigation measures for nitrogen deposition and secondary inorganic aerosol (SIA) episodes requires a detailed representation of emission patterns from agriculture. In this study the meteorological influence on the temporal variability of ammonia emissions from livestock housing and application of manure and fertilizer are...
