Dr. Corjan Nolet is trained as a physical geographer with emphasis on fluvial and aeolian coastal processes. Through his PhD research at Wageningen University he has gained considerable experience in remote sensing techniques and geospatial data analysis. Corjan is an experienced Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) pilot and is an expert in processing and interpreting UAV-derived data.

His expertise’s include photogrammetric reconstruction software, radiometric and geometric calibration and image classification using machine learning techniques. Corjan has developed and conducted multiple training courses on the use of Google Earth Engine for geospatial analysis and has worked as a researcher / consultant in various international projects. Working in these projects, Corjan has attained valuable skills related to statistical analysis of large spatial climate data sets and interpretation of climate change scenarios on future water resources.
