Dr Oliver Schmitz !


Yesterday, Oliver Schmitz, one of our team members, received his PhD at Utrecht University. The title of his PhD thesis is “Integrating environmental component models. Development of a software framework”. You can reach him at if you would like to receive his PhD thesis (or to congratulate him!). A short description of his thesis research is here.



New online courses

We have updated our course material. Have a look at the Courses section for two new distance learning courses on PCRaster Python; without tutor support the courses are free of charge.

We have a new project on assimilation of remote sensing data into land use change models. The project is done with partners in Belgium. You can find more information at the ASIMUD page.

We have a new page on probabilistic forecasting of atmospheric dispersal of pollutants in case of a chemical or radiological accident. The application uses our framework for stochastic modelling and data assimilation.  Check out the page for more information!
