GGR415H1: Advanced Remote Sensing

Hours

18L/8T/4P/2S

Previous Course Number

GGR414H1

Building on GGR315H1 (formerly GGR337H1) Environmental Remote Sensing with advanced theories and techniques for land cover mapping, vegetation biophysical and biochemical parameter retrievals, optical and thermal remote sensing of urban environment, and application of satellite remote sensing to terrestrial water and carbon cycle estimation. Basic radiative transfer theories as applied to vegetation will be given in some detail as the basis for various remote sensing applications. Optical instruments for measuring vegetation structural parameters will be demonstrated in the field.
