Emma Tronquo

During my education in Bioscience Engineering, at Ghent University, my interest for environment and hydrology has grown over the years. Therefore, I chose a Msc. in land and water management in which the link between climate, soil and water was established. My thesis project was about linking the occurrence of droughts to ocean-atmospheric oscillations and investigating whether droughts are influenced by internal climate variability or by external anthropogenic forcings. In October 2019, I started working as a scientific researcher at the Laboratory of Hydrology and Water Management. My current research is part of the BelSAR Science project and focuses on soil moisture retrieval from simultaneous mono- and bistatic radar observations.

 

Research topicsremote sensing, radar backscatter modelling, bistatic SAR science, soil moisture retrieval.
