Dr. Maged Marghany
Prof. Dr. Maged Marghany is the author of “Advanced Remote Sensing Technology for Tsunami Modelling and Forecasting” which was published by Routledge Taylor and Francis Group, CRC. Prof. Dr. Maged Marghany is currently a professor of microwave remote sensing at Geomatika University College, Malaysia. He has led several projects related to the application of SAR to Malaysian coastal waters, funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology, Malaysia (MOSTE) and also the Ministry of High Education in Malaysia (MOHE). His research is directed towards the use of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data for modeling shoreline changes and developing a new approach for forecasting oil slick trajectory movements. He teaches at postgraduate levels on the topic of digital image processing and microwave remote sensing. Prof. Maged Marghany established a new research method regarding four-dimensional forecasting, which was published in his book “Advanced Remote Sensing Technology for Tsunami Modelling and Forecasting” in addition to involving quantum theory for forecasting tsunamis. Prof. Dr. Maged Marghany (1967) was awarded the ESA Post-doctoral Fellowship by the International Institute of Aerospace and Earth Observation (ITC) in Enschede, the Netherlands, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) for one year from March 2000 to March 2001. Prof. Dr. Maged has published over 270 papers in international conferences and indexed journals. He is also the editor of three books published by the rapidly growing IntechOpen publisher.
