The role of geological structures in controlling groundwater dynamics in the Egyptian deserts: An integrated remote sensing and geochemical approach
Dr. Abotalib Z. Abotalib works as a researcher in the Department of Geological Applications at the National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Science. He had a PhD in Geological Sciences from Western Michigan University in 2016. After graduation he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at University of Southern California, USA between 2017 and 2018. His research focuses on the investigation of landscape evolution, active surface processes and groundwater flow dynamics in arid deserts (e.g., the North African Sahara and the Arabian Desert) and in cold regions (e.g., Mars) using interdisciplinary methods including remote sensing and GIS techniques, numerical and geostatistical modeling, geochemical and isotopic analyses and field measurements.
