Profile

I, Lim Hwee San, have been a lecturer in Unversiti Sains Malaysia (USM) after obtaining a PhD degree from USM in 2006. I obtained my B.Sc. from USM in Geophysics in 2001. After receiving my B.Sc. (Hons), I continued my M.Sc. and PhD under the supervisions of Prof. Dr. Mohd. Zubir Mat Jafri and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Khiruddin Abdullah. Finally, I obtained my M.Sc. degree and PhD degree from USM in environmental remote sensing in 2003 and 2006 respectively. My research interests lie generally in the field of optical remote sensing - both passive and active - and digital image processing, particularly as it applies to spectral image data. In both cases, the primary applications are water quality monitoring, air quality monitoring, land cover/change detection, land surface properties and digital images classification. I am also interested in modeling of the optical properties of atmospheric aerosols. My current effort focus on the applications of ground based LIDAR and satellite based LIDAR (e.g., CALIPSO, AIRS) data for air pollution and green house effects study.
