Remote Sensing Of The Atmosphere

15/10/2019

  • 21.17   Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere (2 ECTS) – LC: 20h ; TC : 6h ; Project: 4h
  • Coordinator: Gilles Foret (UPEC)
  • Teachers: Gilles Foret (UPEC), Ngo Duc Thanh (USTH)
  • Atmospheric composition (15h, Gilles Foret): Lectures (10h), tutorial class (5h)
    • Description:  This course provides an overview of the applications of remote sensing techniques about atmospheric composition aspects. This include the observation of pollutants associated to air quality and climate issues like ozone (O3), particles, nitrogen oxydes (NO2 …), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4). Besides theoretical lectures, tutorial class would confront students to real satellite data to develop their ability to analyze and understand these observations.
  • Meteorological aspects (15h, Thanh Ngo-Duc): Lectures (9h), tutorial class (6h)
    • Description: This course provides basic knowledge of the applications of remote sensing techniques in meteorological aspects: clouds classification, convective storms, quantitative precipitation estimation, water vapor imagery, synoptic scale meteorology such as fronts, cyclones. Besides theoretical lectures, tutorial class would help students be able to use satellite data to monitor and interpret various meteorological phenomena.
