Lectures 4 and 5: Infrasound

Course subject(s) 4/5. Infrasound

In these two lectures the students get their first assignment about infrasound. The assignment and additional data can be found in the assignments tab in the menu. The assigment is designed by TU Delft and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute. It consists out of two parts:

  •  Part one is a fictive engineering part in which you will have to find a way to minimize the negative effects caused by local winds on infrasound measurements. Design your solution, make an estimate of the costs and have sustainability in mind during your design process.


  • Part two is an ongoing scientific research about explosions in a goldmine in Sweden. Scientists conduct explosions to analyze and compare recorded seismic signals and infrasound data after the explosions. In this part you will have to compare infrasound recordings with atmospheric specifications and image the atmosphere with infrasound.
