Report Due to the generous financial support of RUB Research School Plus under its 'Laboratory visit' program among its diverse funding lines designed to promote and advance research at RUB, I got the opportunity to stay at the Water Resources and Remote Sensing Laboratory of the University of Georgia, among named universities in United States, for a month in June/July 2014. This stay gave a great exposure to lab facilities and tailored trainings on hydrologic and remote sensing modelling from a leading scientist who has developed and led the lab and from his research associates. This short stay has significantly impacted on my current PhD research project augmenting sound concepts and skills that certainly boost the research output. Diligent follow-up & comfortable working environment created by the director of the lab helped me reap vast knowledge on hydrologic modelling, analysis of remotely sensed information, techniques on accessing enormous high-quality regional and global data sets in such a short period of time.
