FYS-3023 Applied remote sensing - 10 ECTS
The course is available as a singular course. The course is also available to exchange students and Fulbright students.
The course will only be taught if there are sufficiently many students. Please contact the student adviser as soon as possible if you are interested in following the course.
Knowledge - The student can
- describe fundamental principles of remote sensing by synthetic aperture radar sensors and multi-spectral optical sensors
- describe a number of satellite remote sensing application areas within (but not limited to) the marine, cryosphere, and forest domains
- discuss and select appropriate remote sensing sensors and modes applicable to a given application
- discuss and select basic signal processing, image processing, and pattern recognition techniques applicable in the analysis of remote sensed imagery
Skills - The student can
- explain the application domains of synthetic aperture radar and multi-spectral optical sensors with respect to environmental monitoring
- analyze remote sensed data by applying various segmentation methods, multi-channel feature extracting method, and classification methods
General expertise - The student can
- give a basic interpretation of synthetic aperture radar and multi-spectral optical Earth observation data
- implement or apply methods and algorithms in available software for analysis of remote sensed data
- Up to three mandatory assignments during the course. Access to the final examination requires completing/submitting and passing the coursework.
- Final oral examination, counting 100%
Assessment scale: Letter grades A-F. A is the highest grade and F is failed.
There iwill not be arranged a re-sit examination for this course.
