Reyes Martin Gonzalez

Research team: Hydrology and Climate


Environmental scientist and hydrologist, committed to continuing raising awareness in sustainable practices and contributing taking care of our environment.

I am currently a doctoral researcher at the Laboratory of Hydrology and Water Management of Ghent University.Reyes Martin Gonzalez

After obtaining my BSc. (Hons) in Environmental Sciences at Salamanca University (Spain), I took a Master in Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water Resources at Stockholm University-SU (Sweden). For my Master thesis, I set up two meteorological stations in the West coast of Greece and analysed the water demands of two different yet characteristic Mediterranean land covers: Olive orchards and golf courses. Later, and thanks to a joint project between SU and the University of Costa Rica, I had the opportunity to collaborate during the field work campaing at Reserva Biologica Alberto Manuel Brenes, in the cloud forest basin of River San Lorencito. Since then, I have been working as Hydrologist for a British navigational authority.

My role as researcher at UGent will mainly focus on leading GLEAM (Global Land Evaporation Amsterdam Model), integrating in it GRACE and SMAP soil moisture data.


Research topics: soil moisture, global estimates, terrestrial evaporation, data assimilation, remote sensing, radar rainfall products.
