GEOS 5210 - Geological and Environmental Remote Sensing


The course provides rigorous (70% of student’s effort) hands-on-exercises on the applications of remote sensing techniques in geological and in environmental sciences. The hands-on exercises are primarily based on case studies that were published in peer-reviewed articles, data downloaded from our receiving station, and/or data collected by the students using hand-held VNIR spectro-radiometer. In the process of solving the lab exercise, the students will master image processing techniques. The fundamentals of remote sensing will be covered as well, since the student cannot start dealing with applications unless he or she knows the fundamentals. Throughout the course, the students will work with a wide range of space-borne data sets including CORONA, Landsat MSS, Landsat TM, SPOT, ASTER, SIR-C, SRTM, AVIRIS, ASAR, and ERS.

Credits: 4 hours

Notes: Open to Upperclass and Graduate students.
When Offered: Spring - every other year
