How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I am a PhD student in micrometeorology. In my PhD I focus on researching and measuring CO2 sequestration by agroforestry using (and testing) low-cost eddy covariance systems. My study is part of the SIGNAL project, focusing on sustainable agriculture through agroforestry. I finished my MSc and BSc at Delft University of Technology, with a focus on hydrology and water management. For my MSc graduation I performed research with the novel DTS/AHFO technique.

Near-surface wind speed is typically only measured by point observations. The actively heated fiber-optic (AHFO) technique, however, has the potential to provide high-resolution distributed observations of wind speeds, allowing for better spatial characterization of fine-scale processes. Before AHFO can be widely used, its performance needs to be t...

Wind erosion is seen as one of the main risks for modern agriculture in dry and sandy regions. Shelterbelts and agroforestry systems are known for their ability to reduce wind speed and, consequently, wind erosion. The current study considers temperate alley cropping agroforestry systems, where multiple tree strips (shelterbelts) are interleaved wi...
Intensively managed open croplands are highly productive but often have deleterious environmental impacts. Temperate agroforestry potentially improves ecosystem functions, although comprehensive analysis is lacking. Here, we measured primary data on 47 indicators of seven ecosystem functions in croplands and 16 indicators of four ecosystem function...
Evapotranspiration is a key variable of the hydrological cycle but poorly studied in Alpine ecosystems. The current study aimed to characterise the impact of topography and temporal variability on actual evapotranspiration (ETa) and its environmental drivers at an Alpine abandoned grassland encroached by shrubs on a steep slope. Eddy covariance, me...
Agroforestry, which is a combination of monoculture agriculture and trees, is currently being investigated if it can contribute to more sustainable soil management in the light of green economy strategies. Studies show agro-forestry alters the microclimate, the productivity, and nutrient and water usage. Also, agroforestry systems can have a higher...
Near-surface wind speed is typically only measured by point observations. The Actively Heated Fiber-Optic (AHFO) technique, however, has the potential to provide high-resolution distributed observations of wind speeds, allowing for better characterization of fine-scale processes. Before AHFO can be widely used, its performance needs to be tested in...
First estimations for the groundwater recharge in the Chindwin basin in Myanmar are presented in this report. This estimations are based on base flow separation and a SWAT model. Multiple base flow separation methods are applied and these are compared with the base flow produced by the SWAT model. This first estimations show a range of 248-670 mm a...
During three months information about the sewer system of Maputo was gathered, mostly at DNA, DAS, CRA, AdeM, AIAS and at the Municipality of Maputo. The information, consisting of reports, papers, maps, presentations and websites, was used to estimate the potential amount of wastewater in the sewer system of Urban Maputo. This wastewater could be...
