The land surface acts as an interface between the atmosphere and the solid earth. There is a continuous transfer of energy and water fluxes happening between the earth and the atmosphere creating a feedback loop thereby influencing the various processes occurring at the surface. Modeling these fluxes is of primary importance to various applications such as weather forecasting, agricultural monitoring etc.
This course will provide a thorough overview of the various processes at the earth’s surface and the principles in modelling them primarily using remote sensing data. All the principles will be explained through examples, demonstration and hands-on using selected computational models.
