Publication Nature Scientific Reports: Beaches worldwide are growing
We love holidays on the beach and about a quarter of the world's population live on coasts because of the favourable economic location. But until now we have had only a very vague picture of how coastal areas have evolved worldwide over the years. Scientists in Delft are changing this. Researchers from Deltares, Delft University of Technology and IHE have analysed changes in 50,000 beaches over a 35-year period. They present their findings today in Nature Scientific Reports.

Protection of future power systems
Windmills and solar panels are only the visible part of the energy transition. The power grid itself, already one of the most complex systems ever designed by humankind, is undergoing its own transition to ensure a high enough reliability in a future with up to 100% distributed power generation.

TU Delft develops virtual coach for patients with post-traumatic stress disorder
In the future, a virtual coach could make a positive contribution to the therapy of people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), such as war veterans or people who suffered sexual abuse in their youth. Such a coach could motivate people to persist with therapy and help them to recall traumatic memories as part of exposure therapy. The virtual coach was developed by Myrthe Tielman, who will be awarded her PhD at TU Delft on Thursday, 25 January.
