The Environmental and Geophysical Sciences (ENGEOS) Lab at Khalifa University focuses on studying climate and atmospheric sciences at local, regional and global scales to support science-based strategies for stakeholders and governmental entities in addressing climate change and related environmental challenges.
The research activities at ENGEOS lab are centered around the study of the climate and address land, atmospheric, and oceanic processes and the interactions between them. The overarching goal is to advance scientific knowledge in the field of environmental and climate sciences using remote sensing (both satellite and ground-based), state-of-the-art numerical models and artificial intelligence techniques.
ENGEOS lab runs several research projects funded by government authorities and local and international stakeholders. ENGEOS‘s activities are expanding rapidly in the UAE and the region to cover new applications and address the need for the use of satellite observations and advanced numerical models to study Earth sciences while developing a local expertise. This positions KU at the center of the rapidly expending scientific-research arena in the UAE and the region and strengthens its position as a strategic partner in the knowledge-based economic development of the nation.
