Moving Atmospheres explores the intricate relationship between spatial design and human experience, advocating for an embodied approach to architectural practice. Through a phenomenological lens and experimental approach using personal experiences, the study investigates the nexus of emotion, movement, and spatial perception. Utilizing intuitive...

With renewed interest in the development of civil supersonic aircraft, their return in the future is becoming more ever more likely. The environmental impact of emissions in the stratosphere on climate and the ozone layer therefore needs to be explored. The stratospheric ozone levels determine the amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation reaching...

At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

During a solar eclipse, sunlight incident on the Earth is reduced due to the (partial) shadow of the Moon. Atmospheric trace gas concentrations which are influenced by the amount of available sunlight, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>), may be affected due to the disrupted photolysis processes. Large-scale observations of the increased...

Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) stands as a widely adopted technique for monitoring displacements on the Earth's surface, providing millimeter-level precision. Several InSAR studies show the efficacy in retrospectively identifying hazardous situations, such as the failure of a structure. The next imperative step is to detect and...

Global passenger air traffic has doubled in the 13 years prior to 2019, and is expected to double again over the next 20 years or so. Growing demand for aviation is met by a corresponding increase in jet fuel being burned by aircraft, releasing multiple pollutants into the atmosphere. Besides disturbing the Earth’s radiative balance, these...

This paper proposes a novel concept of using highly efficient Snapshot Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receivers to provide precise position fixes of single or multiple satellites in Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) to improve upper atmospheric modeling and thus contribute to superior space situational awareness (SSA). While tracking of LEO...

The efficacy of immersed boundary (IB) methods with adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) techniques is assessed in the context of atmospheric entry applications, including effects of chemical nonequilibrium (CNE) and gas–surface interactions (GSI). We scrutinize a conservative cut-cell IB method and two non-conservative IB methods, comparing their...

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is known for its unparalleled control over layer thickness and 3D conformality and could be the future technique of choice to tailor the pore size of ceramic nanofiltration membranes. However, a major challenge in tuning and functionalizing a multichannel ceramic membrane is posed by its large internal pore...

The power semiconductor joining technology through sintering of copper nanoparticles is well-suited for die attachment in wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors, offering high electrical, thermal, and mechanical performances. However, sintered nanocopper will be prone to degradation resulting from corrosion in sulfur-containing corrosive...

A systematic experimental investigation concerning the fretting-induced tribo-chemical state and its effect on the fretting wear behavior of titanium alloys under the vacuum atmospheres (4 × 10<sup>–3</sup> Pa and 4 × 10<sup>–1</sup> Pa) in different fretting regimes is reported. An in situ XPS analysis tester was developed to capture the...

Around 90% of the oceanic and inland waters’ reflectance registered in satellite detectors comes from the atmospheric contribution. Hence the water-leaving radiances in the Near-InfraRed (NIR) region are above the zero value over inland waters because of sediments and dissolved organic particles, this radiance cannot be ignored. To accurately...

The surface treatment of plastics as well as metals or ceramics includes a thorough surface cleaning as an essential step prior to adhesive bonding and coating processes. Besides this, surface activation of polymers is often needed because their surface free energy is too low for durable adhesion of a coating or adhesive. In this chapter...

Amplified eruptive outbreaks of bark beetles as a consequence of climate change can cause tree mortality that significantly affects terrestrial water and carbon fluxes. However, the lack of field-scale observations of underlying physiological mechanisms currently hampers the expression of such ecosystem disturbances in predictive modelling....

Utilizing a dedicated micro-sized three-electrode cell, this study systematically investigates early-stage electrochemical properties and corrosion behavior of pure iron under single droplets. Various volumes and NaCl concentrations were considered during the evaporation-driven shape and concentration evolution of single droplets. The...

Street Food markets have been a key ingredient of the urban life for centuries. In many cases the direction and intensity of urban expansion was strongly reliant on the emergence of the street food market and vice-versa. These link between the two has been inevitable historically until now and will probably continue as such in the future....

The use of radars for remote sensing in atmospheric sciences has become increasingly popular over the past few decades. Weather radars play a crucial role in measuring, interpreting, and monitoring various atmospheric phenomena. However, accurate retrieval of vertical air velocities remains a challenging problem owing to certain deficiencies in...
