Satellite Remote Sensing for Maritime, Urban Planning and Agricultural Applications

20 April 2021 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Satellite remote sensing has emerged as a transformative technology with diverse applications, notably in maritime monitoring, urban planning, and agriculture. In the maritime domain, satellites with advanced sensors can track vessel movements, detect oil spills, and monitor ocean health, bolstering maritime security and environmental conservation efforts. In urban planning, satellite data aids in mapping urban growth, infrastructure development, and land-use patterns, enabling informed decision-making for sustainable city planning. Furthermore, satellites provide invaluable insights into crop health, yield prediction, and soil moisture levels in agriculture, empowering farmers to optimize their practices and enhance food security. With its far-reaching capabilities, satellite remote sensing continues revolutionizing these critical sectors, offering a bird’s-eye view of our ever-changing world.


Co-Founder of Farmin

Dr. Ali Al Hammadi received his BSc in Chemical Engineering (CE) from the Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi (honors with distinction, 2011) and received his PhD from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CHBE) at Rice University, Houston, TX, USA (2016). His research is focused mainly on the challenges facing the oil industry as more heavy crude oils are produced; in particular, the clogging of wellbores, chocks, pumps, and reservoirs caused by the presence of asphaltene. The effect of asphaltene is an example of how both thermodynamics and kinetics can contribute to a problem. On the thermodynamic part, it mainly concerns with how asphaltene presence in a mixture or crude oil can affect the phase behavior and PVT properties. On the kinetics part, it mainly emphasizes the precipitation, aggregation, and deposition interactions and the prediction of the extent of such deposit. Another main research of Dr. Al Hammadi are nanotubes and fiber-reinforced composites. Experiments are being established to purify nanotubes by removing byproducts that hinder the full capabilities of nanotubes and study their scalability. Such nanotubes composites can be used for better electrical efficiency, lower densities, and extreme temperature applications.
