Specializations

Applied Remote Sensing for Earth Sciences

Learn to identify areas with mineral resources or use active geothermal systems for sustainable energy.

Are you interested in the exploration of earth resources to secure our future supplies? Than this master’s course in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation specialization in Applied Remote Sensing for Earth Sciences leading to an MSc degree is the course for you!

The sustainable use of land and earth resources is a key factor in economic development. We are continuously confronted with instances in daily life that have direct links with earth resources and related processes – from the   buildings in which we live and the food that we consume to the smart phones that we use. Geothermal resources provide energy for the production of electricity and the heating of our houses.

The search for these earth and geothermal resources relies on the availability of up-to-date geological knowledge, conceptual models of mineral deposits and geothermal systems, and modern exploration technologies. Geological investigation and mineral exploration, hyperspectral remote sensing, thermal infrared spectroscopy, geophysics, earth structure and dynamics, and surface deformation are among the themes emphasized in this course.
