RF and microwave remote sensing uses active and passive RF and microwave systems to observe the:
- earth crust
- other environments
Data from these sensors are critical for:
- earth science
- land use monitoring
- oil and gas exploration
- 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.
