Seminar 'Advanced analysis of CPTU' by Markus Uhlig

1 December 2015 | 12:30 - 13:30
location: TU Delft - Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences - Room 02.110

The cone penetration test with pore water pressure measuring (CPTU) is a commonly used method to investigate the subsoil. In most cases, empirical relationships are used to interpret the CPTUs. As an alternative, a new semi-empirical approach is presented to evaluate the soil state (for instance void ratio or consistency) in a fine grained soil.Continue

Seminar Karsten Lambers: The Past as Seen from Space: Remote Sensing and Digital Image Analysis in Archaeology

3 December 2015 | 12:40 - 3 December 2015 | 13:30
location: CiTG, Room F

Archaeological prospection is concerned with the search for, and documentation of, archaeological sites and features. Visual inspection of aerial images has aided this procedure for almost a century. However, more recent remotely sensed data such as satellite images are associated with powerful tools for digital image processing and analysis, including pattern recognition and feature extraction....Continue

KNAW-minisymposium ''Sea level rise''

8 December 2015 | 18:00 - 20:00
location: Het Trippenhuis, Kloveniersburgwal 29, 1011 JV Amsterdam

Only in Dutch - Dat stijging van de zeespiegel volop in de belangstelling staat in een laaggelegen land als Nederland is geen wonder. In een warmer klimaat komt meer smeltwater van ijskappen en gletsjers in de oceaan terecht, en ook het uitzetten van oceaanwater beïnvloedt het zeeniveau. Maar hoe snel zal de zeespiegel stijgen? Wat betekent dat voor de veiligheid van ons land? Weten we eigenlijk...Continue

Seminar Bas Mijling: Fast emission estimates for rapidly changing economies constrained by satellite observations

10 December 2015 | 12:40 - 10 December 2015 | 13:30
location: CiTG, Room F

Emission inventories of air pollutants are crucial information for policy makers and form important input data for air quality models. For rapidly changing economies such as China, the Middle East, India, and South Africa, top-down emission estimates from satellite observations of air constituents have important advantages. The inversion technique as well as examples of applications will be...Continue
