2017 Cyber Security Competition

NUST Cyber Security Team (2017) Selection

The annual Namibia National Cyber Security Competition will be held on the 6th of October 2017. In 2016 one of NUST teams won after competing with UNAM and NUST teams. The winning NUST team participated in the 2017 international competition in the USA. This year we are anticipating that there will be more teams participating at the National Competition.

In building up to the competition this year, DFISRC is inviting interested computer science students who are majoring in cybersecurity or those who aspire to major in cybersecurity to submit a paragraph of not more than 300 words describing why they want to be part of the NUST cybersecurity team and why they should be selected as a team member. In your paragraph include your area of specialty or anticipated area of specialty such as Linux, system admin, network security, systems audit, etc.

Include your name, student number and the program you are registered for.

Please send your application via email to:

Public Lecture: Progress and Challenges in Mineral Dust Modelling

Abstract

A public lecture will be given on Monday, 27 February 2017, addressing developments in mineral dust modelling, concentrating on northern and southern desert areas, recent results and ongoing research works in the area of atmospheric mineral dust. 

Atmospheric mineral dust is produced by Aeolian (sand) erosion in arid and semiarid areas. Surface-Atmosphere interactions control the occurrence and the intensity of dust emissions. Radiative and bio-chemical impacts of sporadic but intense dust storms on the environment differ from those of frequent but less intense events. Mineral dust also represents a risk for human health and activities in regions neighbouring deserts. To quantify these impacts, the regional spatio-temporal variability of dust emissions, atmospheric concentrations, and depositions has to be jointly measured, observed and modelled with adapted sub-daily and fine spatial resolutions. 

 

Besides in-situ measurement campaigns, regional model systems are developed to simulate dust storms. These models allow describing the spatio-temporal evolution of dust events by comparisons with in-situ measurements, network observations and satellite dust products. The representations of dust emissions and dust size distribution in the models are crucial points to correctly simulate the atmospheric dust mass and deposition as well as to estimate dust optical thickness.
