Remote Sensing and Applied Geophysics

Remote Sensing and Applied Geophysics

Resistivity investigation as part
of student summer project work. 

In this module students will be introduced to remote sensing techniques, the nature of satellite imagery, the representation of digital data, and the interpretation of aerial photographs in applied geology, particularly in the context of engineering geomorphology. In addition to remote sensing from space platforms and aircraft, terrestrial geophysical techniques are widely applied in ground surveys for contamination-related and geotechnical investigations. Modern geophysical methods will be introduced and demonstrated, and case studies will be used to illustrate specific applications in environmental geology. In addition, advances in data analysis and modelling will be outlined. Spatial data management analysis based on GIS will form a component of computer-based training.
