GEOP 425 - Remote Sensing for the Earth Sciences

3 credits (Hrs. 2 Lec, 3 Lab)
This course emphasizes remote sensing principles including applications to electromagnetism (EM), aero-gravity, and aero-magnetism.  Air-and space-borne imaging principles and imaging systems (optical,thermal, radar, and lidar) for Earth sciences will be emphasized.  Interpretation of remotely sensed EM data, aero-gravity and aeromagnetic data using state-of-the art software such as MATLAB, ERDAS Imagine, and Oasis Montage will be covered, along with applications to geophysics, geology, hydrology, mineral and oil exploration, and natural hazards assessment and monitoring (earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides and land subsidence, etc.

Prerequisite(s): PHSX 237
