Noam Levin studies geographical and environmental patterns and processes of land cover changes in the face of human and climate induced changes using remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools. In his work he combines field work, remote sensing of satellite images, spatial analysis of GIS layers, statistical analyses and modelling. Noam’s current research focuses on remote sensing of night lights, conservation planning over spatial scales from local to global, landscape ecology, historical geography and aeolian processes. Noam has a great interest in maps, and in exploring new methods to analyse spatial information, from historical maps, GIS layers, aerial photographs and satellite images. Noam is a Professor at the Department of Geography at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and head of the Remote Sensing Lab there.
