WISPweb 1.0 online!

Since the start of 2014 we have been working hard to give WISPweb a complete overhaul, focussing on improving the user interaction. Especially the upload process has been greatly improved, see the major upgrade features below.

But today WISPweb 1.0 is officially launched!

Vacancies at Water Insight

At Water Insight we regularly have job vacancies. Alternatively, we do accept job inquiries although the chances are very slim we will create a position.

Currently we do not have a vacancy.


Vacature Water insight/IVM PhD. positie Research of Eutrophic lakes using optical remote sensing techniques


Text only in English:

This PhD position will focus on the research of Eutrophic lakes using optical remote sensing techniques. Satellite images of lakes reveal patterns that are related to the water composition. These images can be translated into spatial quantitative estimates of:
  1. Optical properties (IOPs) such as absorption and scattering, and attenuation
  2. Concentrations of Chlorophyll-a (as proxy for phytoplankton biomass), total suspended matter, colored dissolved organic matter, and Phycocyanin (as proxy for the amount of cyanobacteria)
The PhD researcher will be based in Wageningen (the Netherland) at Water Insight during the first year. The work will be performed in close contact with researchers from the Institute of Environmental Studies of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. During the first year the lake IJssel will be studied. In the next 2 years, a large portion of time will be spent in Tartu Observatory (Estonia) to analyze Lake Peipsi data.The final year will be spent in the Netherlands at Water Insight and IVM. The researcher will participate in a growing international network with researchers from amongst others Estonia, Sweden, Finland and Germany.
Closing date of the vacancy is 10 june 2011. The PhD position will start as soon as possible. Further information can be requested from Dr. Steef Peters via:

Sneak preview van onze WICAM spectrale 2D camera!


Vandaag is het prototype van onze WICAM gearriveerd om te kunnen testen bij onze projectpartner Deltares. Deze spectrale 2D camera is gemaakt door Ocean Optics, die ook deel uitmaken van het WICAM project dat gesteund wordt vanuit het INNOWATOR programma (zie de project pagina).

Water Insight verlaat het Geomatica Business Park


Einde van een tijdperk: Water Insight verlaat het Geomatica Business Park. het zwaartepunt van onze activiteiten was verschoven naar Wageningen, en het is nu dan ook de volgende stap om alles in Wageningen te concentreren. Wilt u aub onze gegevens aanpassen en het adres + telefoonnummer in Marknesse verwijderen?
