Research Interests

Dr. Temimi’s research interests cover the determination of land surface parameters from space using satellite imagery. He is particularly interested in soil moisture, vegetation parameters and land emissivity as well as the integration of these parameters in studying changes in hydraulic and hydrological processes. Dr. Temimi has worked also on the modeling of drainage systems in urban watershed for an optimal management of water quality and quantity.
