Remote Sensing

Remote Sensing

Highlights the physical and mathematical principles underlying remote sensing techniques, covering the radiative transfer equation,atmospheric sounding techniques, interferometric and lidar systems, and an introduction to image processing. The lab component introduces remote sensing software HYDRA, and MATLAB, used for image display and data analysis.

ENG2570, E282, Spring 2016

ENG2570, E282, Spring 2016

In ENG2570, we will hone writing skills that are often used in the workplace. Through eight units of study, we will create various deliverables (business letters, memos, minutes, process papers, and reports) and think through how best to harness the power of word choice, tone, approach, revision, and follow-through. • unit 1: annotation, MLA citation, best practices • unit 2: organization • unit 3: revision • unit 4: audience and purpose • unit 5: process project • unit 6: reports • unit 7: meetings and collaboration • unit 8: reflection and presentation Units 2-4 and 6-7 will require the preparation of short response papers that reflect an understanding of one or more of the deliverables named above. Unit 5 will culminate in the creation of a process project, and unit 8 will result in self-reflection and a brief presentation.

MAT2572ProbW/Stat, FA2015

MAT2572ProbW/Stat, FA2015

Topics for the course include sample spaces and probabilities, discrete distributions (Binomial, Negative Binomial, Geometric, Hypergeometric, Poisson, and Gamma), continuous distributions (Uniform, Normal, Chi-squared), expectation and variance, hypothesis testing, interval estimation and confidence intervals. There will be extensive use of MS Excel and R, a statistical software program. At the end of the course, students should be able make meaningful connections between statistics and other areas of study, including and social sciences.

ECON2505 Environmental Econ, secD728, SP2015

ECON2505 Environmental Econ, secD728, SP2015

This interdisciplinary course examines current environmental issues from a macroeconomic perspective, focusing on both the long and short-term economic viability of various proposals to address current environmental challenges. While the discipline of Economics serves as a central focus, the course draws extensively from the perspectives of Sociology, Architectural Technology, Environmental Control Technology, Hospitality Management (sustainable tourism), and Sustainable Technology. Traditional goals of economic efficiency will be examined in the context of the need to expand renewable energy sources, green building design and construction, sustainable agriculture and trade, resource allocation and other efforts to combat climate change on a global scale. It focuses on both the long and short-term economic viability of various proposals to address current environmental challenges drawing upon the inherent interdisciplinary connection to these vital economic issues.
