    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    The effect of a sea level rise of 1.2 m in one hundred years on the intensity and salinity of seepage was simulated with the MOC model for a vertical, two-dimensional cross section (25 km x 200 m) of Voorne-Putten perpendicular to the North Sea coast.No significant effect was found on this time-scale. The effect of increased atmospheric CO2 levels, a rise in temperature by 1 °C, and a corresponding increase in precipitation on crop production and water use was simulated using the saturated/unsaturated groundwater, solute transport and crop growth model SWAP. An increase in production and water use was found.
