Summer meeting 2015

On Wednesday August 26th the second Boussinesq Spring event was held in Delft. Twenty three participants enjoyed the lectures of Nick van de Giesen, Pieter Stuyfzand, and Ype van de Velde on the theme “Towards long-term hydrological sites?”. After lunch, we made a walk, via the Boussinesqweg, to the laboratories of Deltares. After some coffee we got a tour through the immense hydraulic lab, the geotechnical lab, and a glimpse on the brand new ‘Delta-goot’. The BBQ was canceled due to the hydrological weather, so the day was ended with drinks and indoor pizzas.

Some impressions of the excursion:
