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.

FIRST AID NEEDS ANALYSIS SURVEY

Aim:
The Emergency Medical Care Programme wishes to initiate First Aid Training at the institution as a short course that will be open for students, staff and the general public alike. This is in a bid to improve public education on how to recognise an emergency and what initial steps to take when you are faced with a situation like this.

Based on the above we kindly request that  STUDENTS AND STAFF (academic and administrative) complete the quick survey below to strengthen the support for this initiative.

NUST Cyber Security Team Selection

Digital Forensics and Information Security Research Cluster (DFISRC) 

NUST Cyber Security Team Selection 

Last year DFISRC conducted the first Namibia National Cyber Security Competition and the NUST team won after competing with UNAM. UNAM defence team won and the NUST attack team won but overally NUST won. Eventually the NUST team participated in a national competition in the USA. This year there will be more teams participating. 

 

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 you should be selected as a team member. 

 

 

 Final Submission date: Friday 5 August 2016
