About Barnali M. Dixon

I have extensive experience in the application and teaching of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, Global positioning Systems (GPS), geostatistics, fuzzy logic and neural networks for environmental modeling. My areas of research interests include advancement of environmental modeling through enhancement of remotely sensed data (image processing) and GIS using fuzzy logic, neural networks and neuro-fuzzy techniques. I have applied environmental models including soil erosion, surface and ground water quality, ground-water vulnerability, watershed risk assessment and management (soils, land-use and water quality relationship), contaminant transport processes, land-use and ground-water recharge, rainfall- runoff simulation, and land use planning (urbanization, soils and water quality relationship).
