ECE 527: Act Remote Sensing Envir
Principles and applications of active remote sensing techniques. Course focuses on microwave and millimeter wave radar techniques.Â Topics include radar equation, detection theory, scattering from targets and natural surfaces, and imaging systems. The following sensors are covered: synthetic aperture radar (SAR), radar scatterometers, altimeters, polarimetric radars and interferometric radars. Applications include ocean wave and wind measurements, soil moisture measurements, biomass measurements, measurement of land topography, and precipitation studies. Course also includes laboratory computer exercises for analyzing and processing real sensor data.
