This course introduces advanced concepts of remote sensing and numerical modeling, with hands-on experience in data acquisition, processing, and interpretation. This course aims to explore key questions facing the agronomic and natural eco-systems using remote sensing techniques and ecological modeling at various scales. The course is intended for senior undergraduate and graduate students (including MPS programs) seeking remote sensing techniques and hands-on experience in using remote sensing datasets/tools and model simulations to address research questions in their fields of study.
When Offered Fall.
