Description
TOPICS IN REMOTE SENSING: ORBITAL IMAGING OF THE EARTH
Orbital remote sensing of the earth has been a reality since the first imaging satellites were launched in the early 1960's. Hundreds of satellites and thousands of sensors are now currently in orbit measuring diverse data sets important for geological, weather, environmental, and climate processes. This graduate-level, seminar style course will explore many of these missions and sensors by the way of directed journal articles and in-depth discussions. Students will also complete an independent project using one or more of these datasets and present the results at the end of the semester.
