Category: Course

Location (Field Station):Flathead Lake Biological Station, Montana, USA

Course Description: REMOTE SENSING FOR FRESHWATER ECOLOGY, GPHY 474, July 20–July 31, M–F, Full Day, 3 Credits Prerequisites: Coursework in GIS (FORS 250 Intro to GIS for Forest Management or GPHY 284 Intro to GIS and Cartography at UM) or equivalents/consent of instructors. Knowledge of remote sensing is preferred, not required. This course will introduce students to field‐based methods of close range remote sensing in freshwater ecosystems. Students will gain knowledge of basic spatial analysis through GIS and remote sensing techniques. Students will learn basic application of UAVs and Acoustic Doppler Profilers, two remote sensing instruments of fast growing interest in ecological research and application. Students will learn about essentials to operate UAVs and ADPs, initial post processing of data products and integrating these data into ecological research and application.

Instructors – Dr. Michael Döring, ZHAW, Switzerland; Diane Whited, FLBS-U of Montana, USA
