Thank you for visiting the blog of my research group. I am Chiel van Heerwaarden. You can read here about the research of our group in hydrometeorology, the field that unifies weather and water.
The goal of the research is to understand the complex interactions between the Earth's surface and atmosphere and their role in weather and climate. Within this broad theme, I focus on the role of atmospheric fluid dynamics in the surface exchange of energy, water, and momentum, as well as in cloud formation.
I am also interested in numerical mathematics and coding in general. On this blog, I write about interesting issues I encounter in my pursuit of writing good Python and C++ code for my research. I am a topical editor of Geoscientific Model Development.
