Course

Environmental Remote Sensing part of Cutting Edge:GIS and Remote Sensing:Courses
Environmental Remote Sensing is designed to introduce students to remote sensing science and technology. It emphasizes mastering fundamental remote sensing concepts and utilizing remotely sensed data for environmental information extraction and problem solving. Students will develop a basic understanding and working knowledge of the principles and applications of remote sensing including satellite multispectral data sets, matter-energy interactions, radiation transfer theory, image interpretation, computer-assisted analysis, and remote sensing applications. It will also provide a survey of the concepts and techniques of remote sensing and image analysis for mapping and monitoring natural resources, environment and land use and a wide spectrum of geoscientific applications ranging from meso- to global scale. It will also cover how remote sensing is used as a tool of geo-exploration.
