Work experience
My major research field is soil mapping and classification. We are using remote sensing and GIS technologies for mapping and monitoring salinity and landuse changes. At same time integration of geostatistical methods can improve the quality of mapping. Remote sensing and GIS technologies gives huge possibilities for application for different purposes. We integrate field and lab. results with these technologies for derive data from wide areas and modeling. _x000D_
