This course introduces the governing equations for radiance reaching an aerial or satellite based imaging systems. The course also covers the properties of these imaging systems with an emphasis on their use as quantitative scientific instruments. It also includes a treatment of methods to invert the remotely sensed image data to measurements of the Earth s surface (e.g. reflectance and temperature) through various means of inverting the governing radiometric equation. The emphasis is on multidimensional image analysis (e.g., multispectral, polarimetric, and multidate) and includes issues such as image registration to support image analysis. Based on the previous treatment, the parameters and processes governing spatial, spectral, and radiometric image fidelity are studied with an emphasis on how each step in the image chain impacts the final image or image product.
