Dr. Willem Zaadnoordijk


Willem is a geohydrologist at TNO Geological Survey of the Netherlands and guest researcher at the TU Delft. His research interests include:

  • hydraulic parametrisation of layer and voxel models of the subsurface including the upscaling of laboratory measurements of hydraulic conductivity and evaluation of pumping tests and calibration of groundwater flow models;
  • time series modelling of time series of groundwater heads using impulse response functions for precipitation and other important variables;
  • using impulse response functions as characteristics of the groundwater system to improve spatial interpolation of groundwater dynamics and delineation of aquitards.
