Research Interests

​Dr. Ershadi's research mainly focuses on the use of remote sensing data on hydrological modeling and integrated water resources management. His current research projects concentrate on i) preparation of evaporation maps for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, ii) measuring the land surface heat fluxes using eddy-covariance towers, and iii) multi-spectral and hyper-spectral remote sensing data processing at different scales for the region.
