Keep on Track: Testing the Lines
The weather and other factors can have a dramatic impact on the visibility of road markings and we can’t always rely on our cars to help us out of a scrape. For his master thesis, Civil Engineering master student Mathijs den Otter decided to focus on a method to test the visibility of road markings affected by external influences such as rain and low sun. And where better to do it than on the race track?

Clearing up the sky: reducing the uncertainty caused by clouds in the climate system
Wolken zijn verantwoordelijk voor een groot deel van de onzekerheid in klimaatprojecties. Met een Starting Grant van de European Research Council (ERC) wil Franziska Glassmeier de evolutie van wolken en hun invloed op het toekomstige klimaat beter begrijpen. Glassmeier is Assistant Professor atmosfeerwetenschappen aan de faculteit Civiele Techniek en Geowetenschappen van de TU Delft: "Als we de onzekerheid veroorzaakt door wolken kunnen verminderen, zouden we een veel beter idee hebben van hoeveel de planeet opwarmt door antropogene emissies."
