Module overview

The module will provide understanding of current ( and future) biophysical products derived from remote sensing data and how they are being used in regional to global scale monitoring of current vegetation function and condition.The module will expose students to a range of advanced data analysis methods to extract quantitative biophysical information from remote sensing data and how to use them as input to ecosystem models. The module will enable students to link these methods and techniques to investigate some of the major societal challenges (e.g. food security through estimation of crop yield) and implications of changes in climatic condition on terrestrial ecosystem.
