Remote Sensing Techniques for Detecting Archaeological Sites in Eastern Delta of Egypt
By Dr. Foudan Salem
Dr. Foudan Salem is a Geospatial Imagery Scientist and a Geography and Remote Sensing Professor at George Mason University in Virginia. She received her Doctorate degree in “Developing New Approaches of Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Techniques in Geospatial Environmental Applications.” At that time, she was also a research scientist at the Center of Earth Observing and Space Research/GMU. She received her Master’s degree in “Multispectral and Radar Imagery with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for Archaeological Sites Detection in Egypt,” from Boston University. Her research was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Farouk El Baz at the Center of Remote Sensing. Dr. Salem worked for many prominent organizations, including NASA. There, she was one of TRMM satellite scientists at Goddard Space Flight Center. Some of Dr. Salem’s publications include developing new techniques in hyperspectral imagery for oil spill detection, marine pollution, water quality, phytoplankton/biological oceanography, and archaeological sites investigation using multispectral remote sensing and radar imagery.
