Research Interests

Dr. Tadesse’s main research focus is on land-use land-cover change detection modeling and environmental quality assessment using satellite and aerial remote sensing and GIS techniques within a human ecological theoretical framework. Other research interests include modeling of the impacts of climate change on agricultural and forest ecosystems, the implications of scale and scaling in remote sensing and modeling analyses, and human-environment interactions. The main focus is to identify new methods of utilizing remotely sensed data to improve land resource management. This includes automated feature extraction with expert systems.
