Student already contribute a number of years to our projects on fresh and salt groundwater in the coastal area. Sometimes with nice reports, sometimes with great results, article worthy! As such, this made that we are a strong supporter of guiding students through internships or thesises (both MSc and PhD)! We have already had students from Dutch universities (WUR, UU, VU), Universities of Applied Sciences (Zeeland, Larensteijn) and institutions like UNESCO-IHE. Foreign (PhD) students were welcome (Universities of Ghent, Florence, Bologna, Rome (La Sapienza)).
We have quite a few new topics, from numerical modeling to water system analysis using monitoring techniques. Just contact us, or the students below. Till hears!
- Feasibility Study The Coastal Collector
- Vulnerability Study: Upscaling rainwater lenses throughout the Southwestern Delta:
- Research on salinisation processes in the Brabant Delta: causes (deep) hydraulic head decline in North Brabant salinization?
- Modeling of submarine groundwater discharge along an extended coastal stretch
- 3D Modelling salt water intrusion in the Bengal area
