ENVSCI 676 - Optical Methods for Monitoring Aquatic Environments

3 Credit(s)

This course is designed for student interested in using optical methods to monitor aquatic environments. It will introduce students to basic concepts and principles of optical relationships, various methods in measuring optical properties of aquatic environments, the variations of these properties in different environments, as well as steps to obtain large-scale data products from satellite remote sensing. The course will also provide examples on remotely sensing oil spills, harmful algae blooms, etc. and on skills and analyzing aquatic environment. Students are expected to have basic knowledge in oceanography and remote sensing as well as statistical skills to evaluate relationships between various environmental properties.
