Applications of Remote Sensing to Air Quality Monitoring
DR. NAZMI SALEOUS
Associate Professor of Remote Sensing and GIS Department of Geography and Urban Sustainability, UAEU
Dr. Nazmi Saleous holds a computer engineering degree (1987) and a Ph.D. in Electronics (1990) from the University of Science and Technology of Lille (France). He joined the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) in August 2006 where he currently holds a position of Associate Professor of Remote Sensing and GIS in the Department of Geography and Urban Sustainability. He serves as the coordinator of UAEU’s Master of Science in Remote Sensing and GIS program. Dr. Saleous is involved in multiple research projects including the use of Geospatial technology in estimating carbon sequestration, and monitoring and modeling urban growth. Prior to joining UAEU, Dr. Saleous spent 14 years at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center where he conducted research on satellite data processing and the development of long-term remote sensing data sets for use in land and environmental applications. Dr. Saleous’ research interests are in the application of remote sensing and GIS for solving environmental and urban problems. They include remote sensing data processing, creation of data time series, land use and land cover change, carbon sequestration in plantations, desertification, and modeling of environmental processes using geospatial technology.
