Vacancies for 15 Phd candidates: Investigating subsurface processes in the Netherlands
NWO awarded more than 4 million euros to 5 innovative research projects from the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences (CEG) for research into the effect of human interventions deep under the ground. The research programme DeepNL seeks to improve the fundamental understanding of deep subsurface dynamics that occur under the influence of human interventions such as gas production and geological storage of CO2.
ECMWF Fellowship awarded to Louise Nuijens
ECMWF has appointed three scientists working in the fields of data assimilation, atmospheric physics and hydrometeorology to its Fellowship programme.

Inaugural speech prof. Bas van de Wiel - The Nighttime Weather: a piece of cake?
Our daily weather has always intrigued many of us. From day to day we experience how the continuously changing weather patterns affect our ongoing activities and plans. On a sunny moment we may decide to go for a nice walk in the park, while a few hours later after a heavy thunderstorm we have to repair our roof.

Two TU Delft proposals chosen to compete in ESA Earth Explorer mission
TU Delft has provided two of the three proposals that are competing for the tenth Earth Explorer mission by ESA, which is planned for 2027-2028. The Earth Explorer missions are aimed at Earth observation, one of the important aims of the European Space Agency (ESA).
Opening of Ruisdael Observatory
The Ruisdael Observatory – named after the 17th-century painter Jacob van Ruisdael – combines a nationwide dense network of measuring points with high-resolution simulations and the necessary computing power in order to map out changes in local weather, air quality and climate. The official opening of the observatory is on 27 September, with a meeting in the grounds of the KNMI measuring station at Cabauw (Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research, CESAR). In April this new top-class research facility was awarded a certificate from NWO’s National Roadmap for Large-Scale Scientific infrastructure.
