The routine use of remote sensing techniques has become an indispensable element of many activities in our modern world. A huge variety of sensors on satellites, airplanes, unmanned aerial vehicles (“drones”), and other platforms provide data for a variety of applications on a regular basis.
From disaster response after hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and oil spills to monitoring ship traffic and floating sea ice, remote sensing technology enables us to acquire high-resolution satellite images of most areas in the world and to obtain near-real-time measurements of sea surface temperatures, currents, wave heights, wind speeds, atmospheric temperature profiles, clouds, aerosols, and more.
The MPS track “Applied Remote Sensing” offered by the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) and Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing (CSTARS) is tailored to the needs of students who seek to gain theoretical knowledge and practical, real-world experiences geared towards a successful career in the field of remote sensing in both public and private sectors.
MPS Applied Remote Sensing, in conjunction with the Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing (CSTARS) provides students with theoretical knowledge and practical, real-world experiences geared towards a successful career in the field of remote sensing in both public and private sectors. Students already employed in this industry can also acquire additional training to expand upon their current knowledge and skill set.
