The main objective of his research is mapping terrestrial ecosystem through remote sensing. The study involved the use of satellite data sets (palsar, alors, jers, etc.) GIS/ENVI/IDL eCognition and other forests Algorithms. The study is focused on wetland and marsh systems. Work trajectory includes the gulf coast and southeast coast of the United States. The results could show the variation in land area and diminish of wetlands through development of infrastructure.
