This module covers both the theory and practical application of environmental remote sensing methods, and students will spend approximately half of the teaching time analysing and manipulating a series of remote sensing datasets, mostly various types of satellite imagery. The module is therefore very much aimed at providing students with both the theoretical and practical knowledge of environmental remote sensing methods, as conducted in the visible to thermal infrared spectral region. Lectures will examine the capabilities offered by remote sensing of Earth, as conducted from satellite Earth observation platforms, and there will be demonstrations of real remote sensing instrumentation
Please note that this is indicative and may change from year to year.
