Ir. J.A. (Antoon) van Hooft


I am a researcher at the department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing, focussing on atmospheric boundary-layer turbulence. I am interested in geophysical physics and environmental fluid dynamics.


My current research is part of the PLANTENNA project and concerns the role of plants in the atmosphere. More specifically, I am curious to characterize the aerodynamic resistance of complex natural objects such as trees. 

My research hobbies include adaptive numerical modeling of all kinds of processes: For example, in the movie you see the evolution of the vortex structures after a head-on collision between two vortex rings.
