Farewell symposium afternoon (13:15-17:00)
Over the last 40 years, Pieter’s work has concentrated mainly on: dunes, coastal aquifers and artificial recharge.

The symposium’s speakers will be:

  • Koen Zuurbier (PWN, previously KWR): New water anchors along the Dutch coast.
  • Prof. Kristine Walraevens (Univ. Gent): Hydrochemical research into coastal aquifers worldwide, and in Belgium.
  • Prof. Theo Olsthoorn (Emeritus TUDelft): The intricacies of fresh-saline modelling, and other matters.
  • Vincent Post (BGR Hannover): Fresh and saline groundwater in coastal areas: Is there actually a balance?
  • Roelof Stuurman (Deltares): Groundwater stress and geo-blunders along world oceans.
  • Closing presentation by Prof. Pieter Stuyfzand (KWR, TUD): Dutch dunes, a testbed for the world.

During the symposium a few KWR and TU Delft colleagues will be making pitches.

Farewell reception (17:00-19:45)
A farewell reception will be held, starting around 17:00. At some point during the reception, Pieter himself will add extra lustre to the gathering: ‘From 1980 to 2020, 40 years Kiwa/KWR, 16 years VU/TUD’.
