Course Syllabus

Earth and Space Sciences 421 is designed to introduce upper class undergraduate and graduate students to the physical principles underlying remote sensing as applied to the study of the land surface of the Earth, Moon, and terrestrial planets. Remote sensing at visible and near-infrared, thermal infrared, and radar wavelengths are covered, including reflectance and emittance spectroscopy. Applications to the investigation of vegetation, rock surfaces, and urban environments are covered. The class includes a computer lab applying processing techniques via software commonly used for remote sensing applications.
