GEOL 2460 Applied Remote Sensing & GPS Techniques

Subject: GEOL
Catalog Number: 2460
Number of Credits: 3

Designed as a follow on to the introduction to remote sensing course currently offered, this advanced class emphasizes field-oriented problems, data collection, and verification. The ultimate goal is to explore the connection between remotely-gathered imagery and the real-world factors which influence those data. Students will come away with an appreciation of current remote sensing issues, an understanding of the geologic and human processes that impact remotely-gathered data, and how those processes can be observed and measured with remote sensing and GPS. Students taking the course should have had at least 1 semester of high school or college Physics.

Offered alternate years in the spring term. Lecture, 3 hours.
