Professor Mashael Bent Mohammed Al Saud obtained her PhD (Applied Geomorphology and Remote Sensing) in 1996 from King Saud University where she was the Deputy of Geography Division, after which she worked as Lecturer till 2002. Since then, she has been working as a Scientific Researcher at the Space Research Institute, King Abdel Aziz City for Science and Technology (KACST).
Prof. Al Saud has been involved in several research fields including physical geography, geological assessment, use of space techniques to identify and detect terrain features, natural hazards, with a special emphasis on floods and mass movement, geophysical surveys, hydrological and morphometric analysis, water resources assessment, and the use of geo-information systems.
As per her experience in different scientific applications, Prof. Al Saud coordinated several research projects in many regions of Saudi Arabia, namely: flood risk assessment and mapping, investigating seismic hazards, magnetic sounding, desert studies including sand dunes, their evolution and characteristics; identification of natural risk-prone areas, mapping drainage systems and their hydrological properties, positioning of dams and water harvesting; in addition to many other applications where satellite images (e.g., Landsat, Aster, Radarsat, etc.) were used. These scientific applications and outputs were substantially contributed in water resources management and controlling the natural risks in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Prof. Al Saud is a member of many regional and international societies, such as the Society of Water Sciences and Technologies, the American Geography Society, the Saudi Geography Society, etc. She has been also awarded several prizes and honorariums, such as (but not limited to) the Honor Award from the King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology, the Award of Access to Water from the International Institute for Water (from the Environment and Health (GIWEH) United Nations Office at Geneva), and the Award of Great Women of the 21st Century from the American Biographical Institute.
In addition to her teaching experience since 1985, Prof. Al Saud has published more than hundred scientific documents, including about fifty articles in Peer-reviewed International journals, and the rest were published as books, scientific reports, research studies, in addition to the production of series of thematic maps.
