After his graduation from Wageningen University in Soil-Water-Atmosphere (with a specialization in Meteorology), Wouter (1973) started a PhD-project at the Meteorology and Air Quality Group (Wageningen University) in 1997. His PhD-research was focused on measuring surface fluxes (including ET) over natural (heterogeneous) landscapes using scintillometry, eddy-covariance techniques and remote sensing techniques (such as SEBAL). He conducted field experiments in Turkey (in collaboration with the International Water and Management Institute), Italy, China, Germany and The Netherlands. After finishing his dissertation in 2003, Wouter continued within the same group on a Post-doctoral research project on microwave scintillometry for measuring evaporative fluxes at kilometer scales. In July 2006, Wouter joined WaterWatch as an agro-meteorologist and remote sensing specialist.
