Description:
Remote sensing, types, principles, application in Geology. Waves, electromagnetic spectrum, colors, effects of atmosphere. Sensors, properties, resolution. Photographing procedures, aerial phoitographs, satellite imagery, wave lengths, types and properties of images. Aerial photographs, photograms. Properties and types of satellite images. Digital processing of satellite images. Visual interpretation of aerial and satellite images. Application of aerial and satellite images in geology and environment protection. Software for digital processing and analysis of satellite images. Exercises in visual interpretation of aerial photographs. Exercises in digital processing of multispectral satellite images. Exercises in interpretation of stratigraphy and tectonics on selected satellite images.

Learning outcomes:

Achievement of specific knowledge on the subject and mastering skills for recognition and interpretation of lithology, sedimentary bodies, tectonical structures, both in well-exposed and poorly exposed terrains; skills to interpret aerial photographs and produce a photo-geological map. Students achieve competences and knowledge to use various photographic sources for remote sensing-based study; aerial photographs, ortho-photographs, single-channel and multi-channel satellite images.
