Over recent decades, remote sensing has become an important tool for studying the changes and processes of the Earth system and environment. This graduate seminar examines how various remote sensing techniques advance our knowledge in physical geography. We will learn and discuss the principles and applications of different remote sensing techniques for earth science studies, including 1) Optical Remote Sensing over Land and Water; 2) Thermal Remote Sensing; 3) Passive and Active Microwave Remote Sensing; 4) Space gravimetry; and 5) Radar and laser altimetry. We will discuss the principles, methodologies, and applications of each category. In addition, we will cover remote sensing data source and processing skills, and some other important datasets (e.g., reanalysis data) beyond remote sensing data.
