KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Western Michigan University graduate student Esayas Gebremichael, geological and environmental sciences department chair Dr. Mohamed Sultan, and co-authors Richard Becker, Mohamed El Bastawesy, Omar Cherif and Mustafa Emil, were published in the Journal Geophysical Research. The article Assessing Land Deformation and Sea Encroachment in the Nile Delta: A Radar Interferometric and Inundation Modeling Approach regarding Gebremichael's research using satellite images to reveal changes in the Nile Delta topography was then chosen as the Eos Research Spotlight.

Eos is the leading source for trustworthy news and perspectives about the Earth and space sciences and their impact. Its namesake is Eos, the Greek goddess of the dawn, who represents the light shed on understanding our planet and its environment in space by the Earth and space sciences.
