4th Day at DTU PhD Summer School

Standard

The fourth day of the DTU PhD Summer School on Remote Sensing for Wind Energy focused on scanning wind lidars, complex terrains, turbulence and wind profiles.

 

Day 3 at DTU PhD Summer School

Standard

The 3rd day of the DTU PhD Summer School on Remote Sensing for Wind Energy covered wind turbine control using lidars and their accuracy, field work to install and operate a Windcube lidar. It also covered work done with onshore doppler radar to detect and study wind farm wakes.

The day was ended with a dinner at sea onboard the M/S Sagafjord.

Day 2 at the DTU PhD Summer School

Standard

Day 2 at the DTU PhD Summer School on Remote Sensing for Wind Energy focuses on Continuous Wave (CW) lidars and Pulsed lidars.

Insight, a mission to explore Mars’ Interior

Standard

So far the only way to get any information about the interior of rocky planets was from the moment of inertia which is related to a planets mass distribution. This only allowed to estimate if a planet has a mantle and what the estimated thicknesses of the core and mantle are. Of course, other (remote sensing) methods like potential (gravity and magnetic) fields can also give more information about a planets interior. However, the only solid way to determine the layer interface and their depth and thicknesses is seismic imaging, a popular technique used to image Earth’s subsurface and interior.
