This course provides an introduction to Photogeology and Remote Sensing techniques including Geographical information system. This course will introduce students to concepts and geological applications in remote sensing with an emphasis on aerial photography. The course is divided into three parts, dealing with photogeology, remote sensing and GIS respectively. The first few lectures will be devoted to building fundamentals of photogeology and remote sensing. This will include a focus on the interaction of Electromagnetic Radiations (EMR) with atmosphere and Earth’s surface.
The course emphasizes the practical geological applications of Photogeology and Remote Sensing for the interpretation of geomorphological or geological features. The course will concentrate on the practical uses of integrated datasets and how to apply these tools for different analysis.
