Jeroen's homepage


Hello, my name official name is: Jeroen Johan Andreas Wijnen MSc.
Born in Geldrop, the Netherlands.
After 20 years living in Someren with my parents and kid-brother (also in the Netherlands) I moved to the extreme north of my country to the very nice city of Groningen (the Netherlands).
After one year of study in Groningen and drinking to much for health I decided to study physical geography in Amsterdam. There I landed as a country boy in the big city of Amsterdam. At the metro the doors closed so fast and then those weird people from Amsterdam (students, artists, people managing the network, junkies and several other classes of people).
But it was great in Amsterdam.
Now I have landed in Würzburg where I will get my doctors degree and most important I hope to become a (hydro)geologist.


Physical Geography

at the University of Amsterdam.

Specialisation in Geomorphology/Quaternary Geology/ Engineering Geology by:

* Geomorphological mapping and its applications, the Blasenka Mountain in Großwalser Tal, Austria.
* Erasmus Intensive Course on High Alpine Geomorphology
* Subjects in Engineering Geology at the Technical University of Delft (Soil Mechanics, Rock Mechanics,
   Static and dynamic loading, Subsidence, Geohydrology)
* Trainee period: Quaternary geological mapping for the Geological Survey of Ireland, Quaternary Section
* Course: Structural geology and the footprints of the glaciers, Earth Sciences at Free University of Amsterdam
* Reflection seismics cruise for surveying the Quaternary Geology of the North Sea, Dutch Geological Survey
* Glacial and periglacial geology
* Master thesis on: Processes in the ice-margin of the Myrdalsjökull-Icecap, Iceland

Ph.D. in Hydrogeology at the Geological Institute of the Julius-Maximilian University of Würzburg


A Simulation of the Groundwater Hydraulics and Transport Processes in the Iraí-Basin near Curitiba, Brazil.
the subject of the my thesis is introduced in the link above.
