    DescriptionHow much water is intercepted by the canopy of a tree? That was the question PhD candidate Tim van Emmerik had to find an answer to in order to gain a better understanding of the earth’s water cycle. But how to go about it? Fitting every leaf with expensive equipment was not an option, so Tim and colleagues had to develop smart measuring methods to infer the right data. And learn to climb trees, in the Brazilian Amazon

    DescriptionHoeveel water blijft er in het bladerdak van een boom hangen? Dat moest promovendus Tim van Emmerik te weten komen om zo de waterkringloop op aarde beter te begrijpen. Maar hoe meet je dat precies? Elk blad volhangen met dure apparatuur was geen optie. En dus moest Tim met collega’s slimme meetmethodes ontwikkelen om de juiste data af te leiden. En leren boomklimmen, in de Amazone van Brazilië.
