I’m a postdoctoral researcher with a Juan de la Cierva fellowship in the Soil and Water Conservation Research Group in CEBAS-CSIC (Murcia, Spain). Currently, I focus on the impact of climate change and landuse change on hydrology and soil erosion in Mediterranean environments. In collaboration with FutureWater I have developed a coupled hydrology-soil erosion model (SPHY-MMF), which I have applied in the Segura River catchment. Please visit the pages related to my research output (publications, presentations and projects) and to my outreach activities (blog and videos).

Visualizing Uncertainty in Maps

Published on: November 24, 2019

One of my main research topics is the impact of climate change on soil erosion. I often apply an ensemble of climate models to account for the uncertainty in the future climate projections. In this way, I can determine how (un)certain the soil erosion projections are, of course, after applying a statistical test. But how can you visualize this uncertainty? That is the topic of this blog post. This all seems rather boring, but don’t leave yet. I promise I will show you some nice maps! In…
