A student from the Department of Communications Engineering receives the best research award from the University of Nizwa, Sultanate of Oman

Student Arwa Atheel Hassan, in the fourth year of the Department of Communications Engineering, won the best research award for her participation in the scientific conference held at the University of Nizwa, Sultanate of Oman. And her research tagged (monitoring water bodies using remote sensing satellites) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Thamer Muhammad Jamil was the best among the fifty researches A number of Arab countries and various engineering disciplines participated in the conference, which was held electronically

The researcher concluded that it is possible to estimate the surfaces of water bodies by using open access to data from Earth observation satellites such as Sentin 1-2 and LandSat-1-9, with a workflow consisting of several blocks to perform certain tasks:

1- Implement a workflow using RGB to image real color images of water bodies

2- Water detection using NBWI, MNDWI and SwI

3- Developing the index for using the blue scale that has not been used before.
