RF and microwave remote sensing uses active and passive RF and microwave systems to observe the:
- earth crust, and
- other environments.
Data from these sensors are critical for:
- earth science,
- land use monitoring,
- oil and gas exploration and
- global climate studies.
ESL research develops models, techniques, and systems for Earth remote sensing.
Our ultimate goal is the inclusion of our technologies in borehole, air- and space-borne remote sensing systems. We collaborate with industry, NASA and other agencies in modeling and testing of new sensors and in data analysis for current sensors.
