Course Summary

    This course is designed to introduce students to remote sensing of the environment by discussing the fundamental characteristics of electromagnetic radiation, how energy interacts with the atmosphere and Earth's surfaces, and ways this energy  is recorded by instruments.  Meaningful ways to extract geophysical information from remote sensing data to solve environmental problems are also emphasized.

    Digital image processing techniques and algorithms involved in the measurement, analysis and interpretation of electromagnetic energy collected by remote sensing instruments are demonstrated through in-class demonstrations and hands on exercises using Leica's ERDAS Imagine image processing system.  The course is taught every other fall semester (even years).
