5/15 CAST 205 3.00 Graded This course will provide a hands-on introduction to a variety of passive and active microwave remote sensing techniques and sensor systems observing the Earth and their applications in environmental engineering and scientific research. It will cover the underlying theory and principles of microwave remote sensing, with a specific emphasis on utilizing satellite data within the microwave segment of the electromagnetic spectrum for monitoring the Ocean, Atmosphere, and Land. Topics will be focused on parameters that provide information about the environmental conditions for various applications. Examples include precipitation, ocean wind, sea surface temperature, soil moisture, inundation mapping, and forest fire. Undergraduate students are encouraged to consider taking either CE 2550 "Introduction to GIS" or NRE 3535 "Remote Sensing of the Environment" before enrolling in this course.
