Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

As a researcher in the topic, he's very familiar with erosional processes. He believes that for successfully control soil loss, each professional must know about the type and degree of erosion to control, as well as what causes it. He is also the author of the very first textbook about the engineering of erosion processes, in Spanish literature.

Most of his career has been focused on the control of soil erosion and the increment of land productivity. His expertise is on the engineering design of erosion control structures and practices, based on a design runoff. As a professor, he has taught this topic for several years now. Hydrology and the hydrologic cycle are probably the most important topic for future generations, since it is key for climate change mitigation. His expertise is on the engineering design of soil and water conservation structures and practices, to increase land productivity.

We all live in a watershed and every disturbance upstream will somehow affect the resources downstream. His expertise is on the effects of human activities on the quality and quantity of water. Also, watershed characterization and evaluation, as well as watershed management plans.

The terms watershed and hydrology are closely linked. As a professor, he has taught the course Watershed Hydrology several times. As previously mentioned, his expertise is on the effects of land management on water resources, from a watershed point of view
