Remote Sensing in the Classroom
February 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC-4
The main objective of this session is to learn how remote sensing techniques are used to study surfaces of planetary bodies. The significance of remote sensing extends beyond applications to space science; remote sensing methods are extensively used to study our very own planet Earth. For example, satellite data helps us monitor sea levels, agriculture, and other surface processes on Earth. The session will include different types of remote sensing methods and how they are used to better understand planetary surfaces within our solar system and beyond.
Jahnavi Shah is a third-year graduate student in Geophysics and Planetary Science at the University of Western Ontario. She received her undergraduate degree in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Toronto in 2018. Her current research focuses on studying impact cratering process on Titan through radar remote sensing techniques and numerical modelling. More generally, she is interested in studying planetary surface processes and planetary analogues. In addition to research, she is passionate about public outreach and science communication.
