ECEn 568 Microwave Remote Sensing is survey course designed to teach the fundamental principles of microwave remote sensing. The course covers various topics in Microwave Remote Sensing with emphasis on spaceborne remote sensing of the Earth's atmosphere, land, and oceans. The primary methods and applications of microwave remote sensing are considered with both active (radar) and passive (radiometry) techniques covered. Key issues related to the design of spaceborne microwave sensors and their application are discussed along with radiative transfer theory. Sensor technologies such as radiometers, scattterometers, altimeters, and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) are discussed. Textbook is F. Ulaby and D.G.
