TU Delft Institutes

Extreme weather and the cityClimate change and rapid urbanisation will result in increasing water management problems in urban areas through this century. Urban areas are particularly vulnerable due their high population densities andhigh concentration industrial and infrastructural assets.

Sea level rise and mass transportHow does the ice mass of Greenland, Antarctica or of glaciers change over time? What will be the effect on the sea level?

Aerosols, radiation and cloudsThe interaction between fine dust particles in the air, the formation of clouds and the effect of clouds on climate change may be easily explained, but is notoriously hard to capture in scientific models.

Climate information and policyOur society is dependant on energy and transport networks. Extreme weather causes local incidents which could lead to nationwide disruptions of traffic, trains and energy supply.

Example: climate institute
