Vibrations from underground nuclear test travel into atmosphere via earth and ocean
Noord-Korea heeft sinds 2006 vijf ondergrondse kernproeven uitgevoerd op hun nucleaire testlocatie Punggye-ri in het noordoosten van het land. De meest recente en krachtigste proef vond plaats op 3 september 2017. Onderzoekers van de TU Delft (Shahar Shani-Kadmiel, Pieter Smets and Läslo Evers) en KNMI hebben zowel de seismische als akoestische signalen van deze meest recente proef onderzocht.

Inaudible infrasound also useful for weather and climate forecasts
Research by Pieter Smets of TU Delft and the KNMI shows that infrasound can be used for weather and climate forecasts. These inaudible low sound waves can be used to gain a better picture of the stratosphere, which can barely be measured in any other way. On Wednesday 28 March, Smets will be awarded his PhD at TU Delft for his work on this subject.
