Time: Monday/Wednesday/Friday, 11:00 AM-11:50 AM Location: PC 442 Office hours: Monday/Wednesday/Friday, 11:50 AM-12:50 PM or by appointment Course Web Site: http://www2.fiu.edu/~hajian/MET4994_5994/MET4994_5994.html Course overview This course focuses on the principles and practices of satellite and radar remote sensing as used in the atmospheric sciences. We will survey the basic atmospheric radiation, review the principles of radar and satellite meteorology, and learn imagery interpretation. The course will cover electronic-magnetic frequencies from visible to microwave, descriptions of important satellite orbits and sensors, the retrieval of atmospheric variables from active and passive systems, and basic principles of interpretation. Graduate students will have the opportunity to work on a research- related literature review and some group-based projects to increase their ability to utilize remote sensing tools in their research/thesis work. Prerequisite: PHY2048, PHY2049, and General Meteorology (or instructor’s permission) .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
