Damage to the barrage in the River Meuse near Grave has led to a drop in the water level at the Port of Heijen/Gennep.

A while ago a climate scientist delegation from the TU Delft packed their bags and travelled to the icy plains of Antarctica to research the melting of ice shelves. The understanding of this process is essential for making correct climate models which can accurately predict the future sea level rise due to ice melting.

Satellite images were combined with field experiments, where they...
