Course Duration One Week
Course Level Intermediate
Pre-requisites Basic understanding of remote sensing and some computer experience
Objectives Geophysical and Geological surveys use geospatial technologies to map subtle indications of mineral alteration, and structures. This course deals with interpretation of remote sensing imagery in geological applications. This will enhance the capability of various departments and individuals to learn the practicality of using satellite remote sensing data for identifying lithology and geological structures. This will provide a template for the participants in processing satellite imagery to successfully evaluate large areas of interest for mineral potential, focus field evaluations, and ultimately a higher probability for exploration. The target group of this course will be geotechnical engineers, geologists, natural and social scientists interested in exploring applications of geology and minerals using satellite remote sensing data.
