School of engineering in Physics, Applied Physics, Electronics & Materials
Remote sensing is one of the main approaches for environmental monitoring on large scales. The course will present the main concepts, technologies and methodology involved in remote sensing.
The content of this course is organized in two parts. The first is devoted to optical remote sensing systems and the second to Radar remote sensing. Both optical and Radar systems allow the acquisition of information of a surface but they are based on technologies and models that are completely different.
The cours will be taught in English or French.Contact Mauro DALLA MURA, Gabriel VASILE
