De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Inaugural speech prof. Pieternel Levelt

has taken place today. If I understood correctly, she mostly works at Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute and is in charge of important task: she monitors the trace gases in air with the aid of sattelite-based spectrometers and thereby watches the climate changes and air quality over the globe. Important job, this contibutes to unbelievable stability of her research: the plans are made till 2030.
It was a good lecture, and I’ve learnt a couple of funny things. The struggle to impove the quality of air can contribute to global warming if done without thinking: some trace gases help to cool. Air pollution is not limited to (compact) industrial regions: major ship routes are clearly seen on a map that shows NO2 concentration in athmosphere.
