TU Delft conducts research on irrigation systems, polders, urban areas and complete river basins. Their aim is to support water management practices by increasing understanding of water management processes, providing know-how and expertise, and offering an independent view. To this end, they collaborate closely with water managers and stakeholders.
TU Delft applies a broad, interdisciplinary approach to water management issues. The tools that they use in their research ranges from data assimilation and remote sensing, to real-time-control and legal and stakeholder analysis. The issues studied include floods and droughts, climate change, water pollution, performance, international conflicts and IWRM.
