How can joint use of multi-sensor data improve our knowledge of the ephemeral Kuiseb River dynamics and of the past hydrology of Namibia?

Cassandra Normandin


Cassandra is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bordeaux and Laboratory of Astrophysics of Bordeaux (LAB), in France, currently working the SENTINELNAMIB project. She previously completed her PhD in September 2019 at the University of Bordeaux, entitled “Contribution of high resolution spatial remote sensing for the study of surface water cycles and suspended particulate matter along the watershed-coastal ocean continuum”. Before her doctorate in 2019, she obtained an Undergraduate Degree in geology at the University of La Rochelle (2011-2014), then a Master Degree in Earth and Environmental Sciences, specialized in coastal oceanography and remote sensing (2014-2016).

Research objectives

Her research project is part of a water resource management context.

The main project objective is to get the best from the complementarity between different types of space observations (radar altimetry, SAR, multi-spectral imagery…) to measure the dynamic of the Kuiseb River in Namibia.
