Work experience
- Made contributions in establishing satellite remote sensing methodology for Forest/Vegetation cover mapping and monitoring for India. Methodologies developed are being used by Forest Survey of India as an operational methodology._x000D_
- Development of Digital Image Processing techniques for vegetation classification and quantification using satellite remote sensing._x000D_
- Developed methods to estimate above ground biomass and forest productivity in natural forests and plantations._x000D_
- Biophysical Spectral Response Modelling Approach for Forest Density Stratification._x000D_
- Analysis for microwave remote sensing data for extracting information on forest canopy, type discrimination and digital approach in contextual classification._x000D_
- For the first time reported significance of Middle Infrared band data for forest type discrimination. The results have been used as input in developing IRS-1C payload._x000D_
