Mohamed Babiker


Mohamed Babiker obtained his PhD degree in hydrology at the University of Bergen in 2004.

Babiker has more than 20 years of experience with the use of remote sensing and geographic information systems when processing satellite data. He works on improving satellite data (such as SAR, Synthetic Aperture Radar), and on using different sensors to look at specific problems (sensor synergy). He has carried out studies of extremely dry areas and their groundwater flows and environmental monitoring of refugee camps using satellite data. He is currently working with sea-ice mapping, icebergs, glacier monitoring, as well as arranging data for shipping in polar areas.
