Kamel Didan

University of Arizona

Dr. Kamel Didan is an Associate Professor of Agricultural-Biosystems Engineering and focuses teaching and research in global remote sensing of the land surface vegetation and on development of remote sensing measurements, data, algorithms and models for calibrated time series analysis aimed at assessing climate-related and land use change influences on vegetation, phenology, water, carbon and nutrient cycles, ecosystem composition and function over a wide range of biomes. His work connects natural resources management and the multidisciplinary use of remote sensing data and techniques to address engineering and societal challenges from agricultural production to ecosystem management, and from watershed to regional global levels.

His research group has also developed an engineering and application oriented program for the use of drones as a fast and cost effective platform for land surface characterization, precision mapping, precision agriculture, and for the low cost validation of global remote sensing data.
