Description :

Professor Salwa Elbeih received her B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. Degrees in Civil Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 1997, 2002, and 2007 respectively. Her M.Sc. was on studying the Geoengineering Hazards Using Remote Sensing Techniques on El-Mokattam area. Her Ph.D. was on the impact of groundwater recharge on the surrounding environment. Since August 2022 , she is the Acting Head of the Engineering Applications and Water Division at the National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (NARSS), Cairo, Egypt.Dr. Elbeih was the P.I., Co-P.I. and team member for more than 30 national and international research projects. She published more than 40 publications in international peer-reviewed scientific journals, conferences, and book chapters. She is a reviewer in a number of international peer-reviewed international journals and supervised a number of master and Ph. D. thesis. She is a Co-editor with Egyptian and international researchers in two books published by Springer; Environmental Remote Sensing in Egypt and Sustainable Water Solutions in the Western Desert, Egypt, Dakhla Oasis.In 2009 and 2010, respectively, she was awarded a prize from the ministry of water resources and irrigation and another prize for the best paper in the 6th International Conference on Environmental Hydrology.Since April 2019, Dr. Elbeih is the Director of the Publishing Office of the Egyptian Journal of Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (EJRS) and an Associate editor in EJRS.She participated in a number of international conferences, symposiums and workshops in Japan, Germany, Tunisia, Greece and Belgium.The recent researches of Prof. Elbeih focus on GIS-Based Groundwater Aquifer Suitability for Drinking and irrigation, Remote Sensing and GIS approach for studying Groundwater deterioration, the relation between Wells and land use changes, sustainable Groundwater Management in Arid Regions, Multi-Criteria Site Selection and Assessment of Ports, qualitative assessment of groundwater quality based on land use spectral retrieved indices, locating and mapping swelling soils, and remote sensing and GIS for groundwater mapping in Egypt.
