Remote Sensing of Water Resources

The course aim to develop Land resource management in order to mitigate associated problems. And to support decision-making in water.

Main achievement

  1. Delineate the surface water bodies, estimate meteorological variables like temperature and precipitation,
  2. Estimate hydrological state variables like soil moisture and land surface characteristics,
  3. To estimate fluxes such as evapotranspiration.
