The Western Michigan University Department of Geosciences has developed a strong research emphasis in the area of remote sensing. Remote sensing research is led by Dr. Mohamed Sultan through the Earth Science Remote Sensing Facility. This facility is a fast-growing learning center for researchers and visiting scientists. The lab collaborates with many institutions nationwide and abroad on research studies.
Research in the lab includes:
- Developing early warning system for algal blooms in Kuwait bay and coastal waters (funded by Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research)
- Evaluating subsidence in the Delta using radar interferometry (funded by National Science Foundation International Programs)
- Modeling time dependent water partitioning on continental scales (funded by NASA)
- The Paleo-hydrologic setting of the Empty Quarter (funded by Saudi Geological Survey)
