Center for Remote Sensing
The Center was established in 1986 as a facility for scientific research in the fields of archaeology, geography and geology.
We use satellite images and other data from airborne and ground sensors to study the Earth and its resources, particularly groundwater.
This includes the monitoring of environmental changes due to both natural processes and human activities.
In 1997, the Center was selected by NASA as a “Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing.”

A framework of rapid regional tsunami damage recognition from post-event TerraSAR-X imagery using deep neural networks (IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2018-01-01)Near real-time building damage mapping is an indispensable prerequisite for governments to make decisions for disaster relief. With high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems, such as TerraSAR-X, the provision ...
Minimizing the residual topography effect on interferograms to improve DInSAR results: estimating land subsidence in Port-Said City, Egypt (MDPI AG, 2017-07-21)The accurate detection of land subsidence rates in urban areas is important to identify damage-prone areas and provide decision-makers with useful information. Meanwhile, no precise measurements of land subsidence have ...
The application of predictive modelling for determining bio-environmental factors affecting the distribution of blackflies (Diptera: Simuliidae) in the Gilgel Gibe watershed in Southwest Ethiopia (2014)Blackflies are important macroinvertebrate groups from a public health as well as ecological point of view. Determining the biological and environmental factors favouring or inhibiting the existence of blackflies could ...
