MET 4994 Remote Sensing: Radar and Satellite Meteorology/MET5994 Remote Sensing in Meteorology Spring 2011 Course Syllabus p. 1 of 3 Instructor: Dr. Haiyan Jiang; Office: PC 342B; Phone: 305-348-2984; Email: haiyan.jiang@fiu.edu . 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) . Textbook:
