Resonant Nuclear Gamma Decay and the Heavy-Element Nucleosynthesis (gResonant)
June 8, 2016 10:45 AM
All elements in the Universe, except for the lightest ones, are made in stars.
But the heavier elements, like gold, lead and uranium, are not. How are they made?
Teacher Evaluation in Schools and Teacher Education (TESTE)

Sacred heritage: Secularisation, sacralisation, and the production of heritage in contemporary Japan
Feb. 18, 2016 12:54 PM
In recent years, many religious sites in Japan have acquired World Heritage status. How does this development affect the place and perception of religion in the public realm?
ALMA – The key to the Sun’s coronal heating problem (SolarALMA)
Jan. 26, 2016 11:29 AM
The SolarALMA project is funded with a Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council (ERC) and runs from September 2016 to August 2021. The aim is to utilize the first observations of the Sun with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), which promises significant steps towards understanding the outer layers of the solar atmosphere with possible contributions to solving the coronal heating problem.
SatPerm - Satellite-based Permafrost Modeling across a Range of Scales
Nov. 17, 2015 3:09 PM
Permafrost is found in about a quarter of the land area in the northern hemisphere. Unlike snow and ice cannot permafrost be "observed" with remote sensing techniques. However satellites collect data regarding permafrost from sensors in field, and permafrost can be modeled numerically using above-ground data sets of temperature and snow depth. In SatPerm we aim to see if such data sets can be used for modelling of permafrost.
Formations of the secular in Japan
Oct. 14, 2014 2:19 PM
This project traces genealogies of the secular in Japan, taking into consideration both pre-modern precedents and moments of modern transformation and adaptation.
