ESPM 172 – Remote Sensing of the Environment (S2020, F2020)
Remote sensing enables investigation of processes at different spatial (global to regional) and temporal (decadal to sub-daily) scales in a variety of disciplines including ecology, forestry, geography, as well as civil, environmental and infrastructure engineering. Through these disciplines, remote sensing contributes to applications such as monitoring and planning of urban landscapes, water quality, national security and disaster monitoring. The course introduces students to the basic physical concepts of remote sensing as they relate to different earth surface processes.
ESPM 15 Introduction to Environmental Science (F2020)
Introduction to the science underlying biological and physical environmental problems, including water and air quality, global change, energy, ecosystem services, introduced and endangered species, water supply, solid waste, human population, and interaction of technical, social, and political approaches to environmental management.
