My main area of research is ‘Land Degradation, Earth Observation and Geoinformation Science’. The research of my group focusses on applied use of earth observation and spatio-dynamic modelling of land degradation processes and ecosystem performance. Land degradation refers to processes that reduce the capacity of an ecosystem to deliver goods and services. Land degradation processes include soil erosion, wind erosion, physical degradation (loss of structure, crusting), flooding, mass movements, salinization, impoverishment of the (natural) vegetation and/or reduced productivity of ecosystems in terms of biomass.
