Courses I Teach
Remote Sensing/Geographic Information Systems Options in Engineering Science ProgramThis is an interdisciplinary program designed for those individuals who seek advanced knowledge in Remote Sensing/Geographic Information Systems, particularly related to the study of the Earth from space. The main objective of creation of this specialization is to educate the professionals to make well informed decisions in solving environmental problems utilizing combined technology of Remote Sensing/Geographic Information Systems.
Applications of remotely sensed data in natural resources monitoring and management. Current research Projects are focused on utilization of both airborne/spaceborne imageries and their integrations into GIS with emphasis on mapping aspacts. Currently I have a NASA faculty fellowship working on "Development of an Expert System for Optical Water Quality Parameters of Nearshore Waters". I was a PI for the National Science Foundation project to establish the "Remote Sensing and GIS Instructional Laboratory" at NJIT.
