Thèmes de recherche
Jean-Louis Janeau has 34 years’ experience in the field of erosion and hydrodynamic studies influencing the ecosystem ecologies. He is an IRD engineering specialist for hydrophysical measurements and erosion parameters in the natural environment and cropped areas using rainfall and runoff simulators and stream flow studies. From 1984 to 1999, he developed many technical innovations for the runoff simulator, apparatus for taking pictures in the vertical position, and traps for in situ sediment samples. He is a soil crusts’ cartographer with experience in different surveys in West Africa, Mexico, and Ecuador where he was posted for 6, 6, and 4 years respectively. He was a consulting engineer in soil sciences for natural disasters in Ecuador (El Niño and landslides) and he is a consulting engineer in soil sciences for hydrophysical measurements in Asia and Central America. Jean-Louis has published his research findings in peer-reviewed journals (34 articles and 1 book editor and 4 chapter of book) and conference proceedings and he has presented 10 communications at international conferences. He is an advisor for students (engineers and PhD students) and partners (workshop training) in Asia and Central America. Since 2000, he has been based at IWMI–IRD Thailand. Since 2004, he is having been involved in the MSEC project with specific focus on off-site effects (soil losses, the siltation and the water quality of reservoirs) and he leads this research programme in Thailand. November 2006-July 2010, he was visiting scientist at the School of Bioresources Engineering and Environmental Hydrology - University of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa with focus about land degradation and eco-hydrology. From Sept. 2010 to August 2015, he was visiting scientist to the Soil and Fertilizers Research Institute in Hanoi, Vietnam. From Sept 2015 to March 2016, he is lecturer in water and soil conservation at Tours University (France) and environmental engineer at Institute of ecology and environmental sciences (Paris – France). Since April 2016, he his visiting scientist at Land Department Development in Bangkok, Thailand to participate at watershed research project, hydrology and erosion processes.


The strongest points of my research are :
- Specialist of hydrophysical measures and erosion parameters (on-site and off-site effects) in natural environment (from 1 m2 scale to watershed).
- Advisor for students (engineers, MSc and students PhD) and partners (workshop-training in Asia and Central America).
- Technical innovation for the runoff simulator, apparatus for taking pictures in vertical position, traps for sediments in situ samples
- Soil crusts cartographer (maps used in Ecology)
- Consulting soil sciences for natural disasters in Ecuador (El Niño and landslides)
- Consulting soil sciences for hydrophysical measurements in Asia and Central America.
