The sea level has been rising by an average of 3.1 millimetres a year since 1993. Long-term measurements recorded since the start of the 20th century indicate an acceleration in the averaged sea level change. Coastal flooding and land loss are just some of the severe consequences. Geodesist Dr.-Ing. Luciana Fenoglio-Marc, is currently using satellite data to analyse sea level change and its causes.
If entire mountain slopes start to slide, danger threatens. It is not always easy to predict and monitor these mass movements. In an international project, scientists at the TU Darmstadt combined numerical models with microwave radar systems in Northern Tyrol – with promising results.
The Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt will be exhibiting a new type of infrastructure system for supplying water and disposing of sewage and refuse that may be flexibly adapted to suit conditions at rapidly, and frequently wildly, growing cities and greater metropolitan areas in newly industrializing and developing countries at the “EXPO 2010,” Shanghai. The TU Darmstadt will be the only German university to have its own exhibit at the Shanghai World Fair.
