PHYS 520 - Physical Principles of Remote Sensing


Prerequisites, PHYS 101, 102, or consent of instructor. Students get a thorough introduction to gathering the basic concepts and procedures of fundamentals of physical principles of remote sensing. The main emphasis is on the physical and mathematical principles underlying the techniques, such as the atmospheric radiative transfer, satellite orbit and geo-location simulation, and science algorithm designing, calibration and atmosphere corrections. Other computational methods will be emphasized. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
