New Content Item

Dr. Harm Bartholomeus is Assistant Professor of Remote Sensing at the Laboratory of Geo-Information Science and Remote Sensing at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. He received his MSc degree (Physical Geography, 2000) from Utrecht University and his degree as Geography teacher from the same university in 2001. At the end of that year he started as researcher and lecturer at the Centre for Geo-Information of Wageningen University, which he combined with a part-time PhD-research entitled “The influence of vegetation cover on the spectroscopic estimation of soil properties” (2004-2009). This thesis focused on the development of models to estimate soil properties from spectral measurements, the influence of vegetation on these models, the validation of the model robustness and upscaling of models to airborne imaging spectrometer data. In 2009 he became assistant Professor Remote Sensing, with interest in the use of different (remote) sensing techniques (imaging spectroscopy, LiDAR, UAV based sensing techniques) in forestry, ecology, soil science and climate studies. Together with colleagues he established the Wageningen UR Unmanned Aerial Remote Sensing Facility (UARSF), which aims for innovation, implementation and support of UAV based research in environmental studies.
