Prerequisites: -

Course Objectives: Teaching geology students how to use satellite and aerial imagery as a source of data during research, introducing up to date techniques of image processing, analysis, and interpretation.

Learning Outcomes: Students will become skilled to use satellite and aerial imagery for purposes of geological mapping, geomorphological investigations, hydrogeological studies, slope stability investigations, ore deposits research.
