Taksha University Short Course TRS101: Fundamentals of Atmospheric Radiation for Use in Remote Sensing
The purpose of this course is to introduce the basic definitions, laws, and concepts of atmospheric radiation. This course will prepare its students for further coursework, research, or applications in which the basic principles are required to develop more advanced principles of radiation and radiative transfer.
A basic knowledge of calculus is required.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This is a course on the fundamentals of atmospheric radiation for use in remote sensing, intended for scientists, science or R&D managers, and research support personnel who are looking for a basic understanding of radiation terminology and fundamental laws governing the behavior of atmospheric radiation.
This course is also of value for those who wish to further explore related subjects of radiative transfer or to consider applications such as remote sensing, modeling, or sensor/instrument performance, but do not yet have a sufficient background in these areas.
Day 1 (6 hours): Basic definitions will be reviewed with examples demonstrating their usage. Fundamental laws of radiation will be presented along with examples of usage.
Day 2 (6 hours): The complete equation of radiative transfer will be derived, including the multiple scattering term. Solutions for simplified cases will be derived and discussed.
