Mutlu Özdogan uses remote sensing techniques to research land-use/land-cover conversion and climate change impacts on the global water and energy cycles and how these impacts interact with ecosystem goods and services that are important to human well-being. He is also interested in improving the information content of satellite observations through algorithm and model development. Özdogan previously developed a dataset on global irrigation extent with the help of satellite observations, which can be used in conjunction with irrigation water use models to assess irrigation feedback on climate and the sustainability of agricultural water resources that affect global food security and human vulnerability.
