MTO 313 - Fundamentals of Remote Sensing in Meteorology

Course Objectives

Introduction to remote sensing, electromagnetic radiation, sensors, radiative transfer theory, atmospheric transmission, image processing, applications in the atmosphere, weather forecasting, environmental applications, active remote sensing technique, acoustic remote sensing, scattering theory, lidar and radar, satellites, instruments, resolution, descriptive statistics, image enhancement, vegetation indices, land cover classification, integration of remote sensing with GIS.

Course Description

The objective of this course is to apply principles of radiative transfer to remote sensing of the atmosphere and the ocean. The course emphasizes physical understanding of the basic principles and addresses a breadth of applications in both passive and active remote sensing of the atmosphere and oceans. The goal of the course is to provide a broad conceptual framework for understanding the methodology and applications of remote sensing, so students have the foundation for further learning on the topic, the basis for integrating remote sensing into their research on atmospheric, oceanic, and earth sciences, and to provide a context for various applications.
