Mrs. AKRN Ranasinghe

Lecturer

nishamanie@geo.sab.ac.lk

Qualifications

MSc in Geoinformatics, Department of Earth Observation Science, University of Twente, 2006
Bachelor of Surveying Sciences, Sabaragamuwa University, 2002


Profile

I am involved in integrated applied research, with specific attention on microwave remote sensing for disaster investigation. Especially, I am interested in landslide investigation through different change detection techniques and statistical image analysis by integrating radar and optical satellite images. Further, I am engaged in teaching multidisciplinary subjects as Remote Sensing, GIS, Construction Surveying, and Advanced Land Surveying.


Research Interests

  • Radar and optical remote sensing for Disaster studies
  • Landslide Investigations from Remote Sensing
  • Bivariate and Multivariate statistical analysis
  • GIS and Remote Sensing for Applied Research

Current Research Projects

  • Radar and Optical Remote Sensing for Soil Moisture Estimation
  • Solid Waste Management using GIS
  • Integration of Debris flow analysis in Landslide Susceptibility Analysis
  • Radar and Optical Remote Sensing for Landslide Investigation
  • Determination of the Sedimentation of Rantambe reservoir using Radar and Optical Remote Sensing 
  • Analyzing the Urban Heat Island effect and its relationship, behavior with the land surface cover change
  • To investigate the variations of aerosol optical depth, as an indicator of air pollution, over the Kandy area using remotely sensed data
