Work Experience-Thermal airborne survey to detect submarine springs along the Lebanese coast line. This project concerned with identifying fresh water discharges into the sea. I could utilize how to all approaches of recognition and remote sensing application in this respect. -Studying the hydrogeology of coastal Lebanon. In this project I could benefit how to localize groundwater potential areas through identification of all factors influencing groundwater storage. -Assessment of water resources in the karstic areas of Lebanon. This project tackled all parameters affecting water resources management and conservation in a selected karstic region in Lebanon. Therefore, strategies and policies were identified.
