Teaching

Graduate and Undergraduate Teaching (recent courses taught) [2001 - 2008]

 

International Institute for Earth System Science, Nanjing University, China.

Advanced Graduate Lectures in Remote Sensing, “Airborne and Space-borne Image Spectrometry for Terrestrial Ecosystem Applications”, June, 2008.

Distinguished Seminar Series in “Global Change and Environmental Remote Sensing” Prof. John Miller, York University, Prof. Jing Chen, University of Toronto.

 

 

GS/ESS 5180.03 "Physical Principles of Remote Sensing of the Earth's Surface"                                  

The physical principles of remote sensing of the earth's surface are presented with emphasis on a quantitative approach to interpretation of information received by satellite/airborne sensors. This course is integrated with the undergraduate course SC/EATS 4220.03. Graduate students are expected to undertake a major research project focused on the recent literature illustrating “Estimation & Retrieval of Earth Surface Variables through Surface Interaction Model Inversion” in the optical, thermal or microwave region, involving model description, coding, and illustration.

               

 

SC/EATS 4220.03 "Remote Sensing of the Earth's Surface"

The physical principles of remote sensing of the earth's surface are presented with emphasis on a quantitative approach to interpretation of information received by satellite/airborne sensors. This course is integrated with the graduate course GS/ES5180.03. For EATS 4220, lectures are complemented by laboratory exercises that involve measurements of signatures of natural targets using laboratory instruments as well as from digital airborne imagery.

 

SC/NATS 1770.06 "Technology & the Environment".  A look into the science basis for the impact of the human use of technology on our environment, on the local scale and the global scale, and a discussion of the successes and shortcomings of mitigation approaches.
