In his 2010 doctoral dissertation at the Delft University of Technology and the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, Segura describes innovative methods to design and evaluate monitoring networks. The fundamental idea, he says, is to maximize the performance of water systems by optimizing the information content that can be obtained from monitoring networks. The pillars of his approach are information theory, value of information, and data collection by public participation. His case studies come from the polders of Pijnacker, in The Netherlands where he studied and the Magdalena River in his native Columbia. He has not indexed his work.
