Personal profile

Chris Mannaerts is Associate Professor of Environmental Satellite Hydrology at the Faculty of Geo-information Sciences & Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente (NL). He holds engineering MSc degrees in (soil) physical chemistry, environmental sanitation engineering and a PhD in agricultural hydrology from the University of Ghent (Belgium).  His education inputs and multidisciplinary research interests relate to hydrological remote sensing, combined with the use of biogeochemical data in water, food & health security studies, with emphasis on climate and human impacts on water resources and ecosystems. He is involved in int’l networks (GEO) related to societal use and open access to earth observation, and has a long track record in knowledge exchange, research and advisory project services in Africa, Latin America and Asia.

Key qualifications: satellite hydrology, land & water management,
environmental protection, climate impacts, international scientific and
technical cooperation projects.
