Speaker:  Dr Mahdiyeh Razeghi, Lecturer, University of Southern Queensland

Abstract:  This seminar will aim to convey the transformative potential of satellite earth observation in understanding and managing water resources. This technology not only provides valuable insights into surface water and groundwater dynamics but also offers practical applications for industries like mining, particularly in areas of rehabilitation and groundwater assessment. There are tools available to enhance the management of water resources and contribute to more sustainable practices.
