|RMS 5105||3 Quarter Hours|
|Course Level||CPS - Undergraduate Quarter;CPS - Graduate|
|Description||Provides an overview of remote sensing principles and their earth and environmental science applications. Covers four general categories: (1) physical processes/theories involved in remote sensing, e.g., the nature and properties of electromagnetic radiation and how it is affected by interactions with the atmosphere and earthâ€™s surface; (2) different sensor types including optical, thermal, and microwave systems; (3) different applications of remote sensing such as land-use, land-change, vegetation, natural environmental, natural hazards, planetary environments, and military; and (4) methods of remote sensing as applied to analyzing images and extracting desired information.|
