Last month, Willemijn returned to Wageningen
University in the Netherlands to defend her PhD thesis titled “Water
redistribution at the soil surface: ponding and surface runoff in flat areas”.
Willemijn's thesis presents measurements and model simulations of overland flow
generation in flat, well-drained, agricultural areas in temperate climate
zones. The thesis was successfully defended before a committee of four
researchers from the Netherlands, Germany, and Luxemburg. Congratulations Willemijn!
