Vreugdenhil, Mariette


Mariette’s principle research interests focus on the application of microwave remote sensing observations to monitor vegetation and soil moisture dynamics. At the moment she works on retrieval of vegetation products and indices from Metop ASCAT and Sentinel-1.

She is experienced with hydrological fieldwork, installing and maintaining an in situ soil moisture network and regular vegetation sampling.
