Farha Sattar, a PhD candidate in the School of Environmental and Life Sciences, has won the Best Student Presentation award in the 14th Australian Remote Sensing and Photogrammetric Conference.
The conference, held at the Darwin Convention Centre, was attended by more than 400 researchers from all over the world.
In this prestigious forum, Farha (picutred) presented her research paper titled “Identification and mapping of alluvial gullies using remote sensing in sub-catchment of Daly Basin”.
She is using state-of-the-art technology CARTOSAT-1 satellite images for mapping gully erosion in 3D perspective.
Her innovative technique will assist in improving soil erosion models used in northern Australia.
Farha is supervised by Dr Waqar Ahmad and Professor Bob Wasson.
