About the Author


Pravat Kumar Shit has received his PhD degree in 2013 at Vidyasagar University in India. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography, Raja N. L. Khan Women's College, Gope Palace, Midnapore, West Bengal, India. He worked on applied geomorphology, environmental modeling, and published more than 35 international and national research articles in various journals. Dr. Shit's research focuses on soil erosion spatial modeling, badland geomorphology, gully morphology and natural resources mapping and modeling. His research work has been funded by the University Grants Commission (UGC), India. Dr. Shit is an associate editor and on the editorial boards of three international journals of geography and environment earth science.Hamid Reza Pourghasemi is an Associate Professor of Watershed Management Engineering in the College of Agriculture, Shiraz University, Iran. He has a B.Sc. in Watershed Management Engineering from the University of Gorgan (2004), Iran; an M.Sc. in Watershed Management Engineering from Tarbiat Modares University (2008), Iran; and a PhD. in Watershed Management Engineering from the same University (Feb 2014). His main research interests are GIS-based spatial modeling using machine learning/data mining techniques in different fields such as landslide, flood, gully erosion, forest fire, land subsidence, species distribution modeling, and groundwater/hydrology. Also, Hamid Reza works on multi-criteria decision-making methods in natural resources and environment. He has published more than 90 peer-reviewed papers in high-quality journals, with three chapters in Springer. Also, he has published two books for Springer and Elsevier.Gouri Sankar Bhunia has received his PhD degree from the University of Calcutta, India in 2015. His PhD dissertation focused on environmental control measures of infectious disease (Visceral leishmaniasis or kala-azar) using geospatial technology. His research interests include Kala-azar disease transmission modeling, data mining, and information retrieval using geospatial technology. Dr. Bhunia is an associate editor and on the editorial boards of three international journal in Health GIS and Geosciences. He works as a 'Resource Scientist' in Bihar Remote Sensing Application Centre, Patna in Bihar, India. He is recipient of the Senior Research Fellow (SRF) from Rajendra Memorial Research Institute of Medical Sciences (ICMR, India) and contributed to multiple entomological studies and research programs on Kala-azar disease transmission modelling and development of Customized GIS software for Kala-azar "risk" and "non-risk" area. Dr. Bhunia has published 40 articles in total including 21 articles in journals indexed in Scopus (h-index: 8).
