Project

Environmental Footprints in Tropical Regions

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

The AgWit European project aims to reduce and quantify the water and carbon footprint of tropical crops exported to the EU from tropical regions in Latin America working from local (farm scale) to regional scale to increase the sustainability of agriculture (SDG 5).

The student will quantify the crop water use efficiency from different crops and  land use types, perform simulations of scenarios of land use change and soil amendments (e.g. biochar to improve water retention). The student will help to produce information useful for a sustainable management of the land use.

The student will learn to use remote sensing hyperspectral, thermal, RGB from drones and satellites (Landsat or Sentinel).

The project can be designed with more emphasis on analysis of observational data or modeling aspects. The study sites are located in Costa Rica and the Amazon rainforest/crop boundary in Brazil.
