Scanning for Syria

The clay tablets with cuneiform writing from the museum in Raqqa in northern Syria have been destroyed or plundered. Fortunately there exist silicon moulds of the clay tablets in the Netherlands made before the war. Dr D.J.M. Ngan-Tillard, geo-engineer at TU Delft, uses micro CT scans to create images of the insides of objects. Now she tries to do the same with the Syrian clay tablets together with two other scientists. So a lot of valuable information can be saved by making 3D scans and prints of moulds.

Book (in Dutch): SPIEGELZEE. De zeespiegelgeschiedenis van de mens.

Our ancestors have experienced unimaginable sea level changes that had a major impact on their environment. Prof. S.B. Kroonenberg explains in an accessible manner which are the causes of these changes. Till so far our ancestors were very inventive to adapt themselves to these changes, even with primitive resources, so we need not to fear that we aren’t able to adapt in the future.

Infrasonic sounds in the earth

The rumbling of Mount Etna on Sicily can be measured as far afield as De Bilt. Infrasound from the volcano is very low frequency sound travelling through the atmosphere. It is inaudible to the human ear yet still measurable. So says seismologist Läslo Evers of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), who is researching infrasound and conducts measurements using special equipment. On Wednesday 8 March, he will deliver his inaugural lecture as part-time Professor of Seismo-Acoustics at TU Delft.
