At the annual meeting of the J.M. Burgers Centrum (the Research School for Fluid Dynamics) Jeroen Hazewinkel of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) has been awarded the first prize for his presentation about tomographical (3D) reconstructions of internal water waves.

Research groups in fluid dynamics from all Dutch Universities presented their most recent research on 13 January at Twente University. The presentation by Jeroen Hazewinkel was awarded because of the scientific relevance of his topic and his appealing performance for a broader audience.

Hazewinkel is investigating the formation of patterns of 3D internal water waves. For this research it is required to perform measurements in a fluid without disturbing it. The newly developed tomographic method allows for such measurements and will lead to better understanding of 3D internal wave patterns.
