Dr. Yousif Ali Hussin, Associate Professor of Remote Sensing and GIS at Associate Professor of Remote Sensing and GIS at the Department of Natural Resources of Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation ITC, University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands, will be one of the plenary speakers during the PhilGEOS 2012. He will talk about forest carbon stock modeling using very high resolution satellite images, airborne Lidar and air-photogrammetric point clouds.
Dr. Hussin received his PhD degree in Forest Sciences (Remote Sensing and GIS) from Colorado State University in 1990. His current research interest is the application of microwave and optical satellite data in monitoring tropical deforestation and forest degradation. Specifically, Dr. Hussin is into SAR and Optical images application in forest and land cover types; RS/GIS applications to detect, monitor and model deforestation and forest degradation; RS/GIS applications to detect, monitor and model forest fire, RS/GIS applications to mangrove and other coastal forest cover types; Remotely Sensed image classification and image transformation for forest and land cover types mapping; Assessment and modeling sequestrated/emitted carbon from healthy/burnt forest using geo-information. >>Read more>>
