Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Basic knowledge about electromagnetic waves and spectroscopy.

Syfte

Remote sensing is an important tool for environmental monitoring, numerical weather
prediction and other fields. For example, remote sensing has been vital for our
understanding of ozone depletion and global climate changes, and this role will
continue to increase in importance. The research field is multi-disciplinary and
encompasses instrument techniques, physics, mathematical methods as well as the
geophysical applications. The objective of the course is to give an integrated overview
of these system components, with a special emphasis on the basic physical and
instrument principles of remote sensing observations. The aim is to give a
fundamental understanding of possibilities and limitations of different observation
techniques used in remote sensing, and their main applications. This knowledge shall
allow simpler usage of remote sensing data and continued studies in the field.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)


  • discern and explain the physical processes that have a significant influence on
    the observation. This includes quantitative calculations on simple model
    systems.

  • simulate the radiative transfer for situations restricted to specular surface
    reflections and no scattering within the atmosphere.

  • select possible observation techniques

  • describe the complete data flow, from actual observation to final geophysical
    analysis. Give examples of useful supporting data. Show an understanding of
    how the data extraction can be performed.

  • discuss basic measurements characteristics, such as coverage and resolution
    in space and time, and main random and systematic error sources

Innehåll

The physical principles/concepts and observation techniques discussed in the course
include: the Stokes vector, complex refractive index, absorption, emission, particle /
surface / volume scattering, radiative transfer equations, basic properties of the
atmosphere and common materials, pressure broadening, passive / active techniques,
photometric systems, DOAS, IR sensors, radiometers, laser profilers, altimeters,
radars, SAR, main applications and limitations of discussed techniques, observation
platforms, satellite orbits, spatial / wavelength / temporal coverage and resolution,
precision, accuracy, thermal noise, calibration, atmospheric correction, image
processing, weighting functions, inversion methods, and error propagation.

Organisation

The course includes lectures, problem solving classes and group laboratory work

Litteratur

"Physical principles of remote sensing" by W.G. Rees (ISBN 0-521-66948-0) and a
compendium by the course lecturers.

Examination

Written exam and laboratory exercises. The later requires approved reports on
performed work. Grading is based solely on the written exam.
