Jonas-Frederik Jans

After my master in Bioscience Engineering: Land and Water Management, I started working at the Hydro-Climate Extremes Lab focusing on a project that aims to characterize the water demand of the province of East-Flanders. Using AquaCrop the irrigation demand of several water demanding crops were analyzed on a provincial scale. Tap water usage, industrial and household discharges and groundwater and river withdrawals were also examined. Within my master dissertation I created a methodology to investigate the dynamics of shifting cultivation within the Congo Basin using the archive of Landsat images.
