“The Use of Combined Remote Sensing Methods and New Approaches for Soil Mapping” by Naftaly Goldshleger

Naftaly Goldshleger—Senior Scientist & Lecturer, Soil Erosion Research Station, Israel

Dr. Naftaly Goldshleger is a senior scientist and a lecturer in the Soil Erosion Research Station in the Ministry of Agriculture in Israel. He has more than 20 years’ experience in remote sensing, with special emphasis on Landscape Ecology and Hyperspectral technology (HSR). His studies focus on both quantitative and qualitative analyses of field and laboratory reflectance data and on processing of airborne and orbital hyper and multi-spectral data for precise and advanced surface mapping. He has a strong background in soil science geology, spectroscopy, and remote sensing processing.


Dr. Naftaly's talk will focus on below-ground/sub-surface active remote sensing methods and approaches for soil mapping. More specifically, he will talk about the growing use of active remote sensing systems like the GPR (Ground Penetration Radar) and FDEM (Frequency domain electromagnetic) for measuring the conductivity profiles and magnetic susceptibility of the subsurface. In addition, the use of passive remote sensing tools like spectroscopy of surface and ground cross-section through an optical fiber GPSB (Ground penetrating spectral probe) will also be discussed. These tools, methods, and approaches have increased the speed and accuracy in estimating field soil properties.

A flyer for the talk is available here.
