ESCI 770 (01) - Geodesy for Ocean Mapping

Geodesy for Ocean Mapping

Credits: 3.0
Term: Fall 2024 - Full Term (08/26/2024 - 12/09/2024)
Grade Mode: Letter Grading

Ocean mapping requires precise positioning and navigation. For this we need to precisely know Earth's shape, gravity field, and orientation in space. Data used for this purpose include satellite-based positioning, gravity measurements, and ground surveys. Reference frames can then be created allowing the integration of geometric observations for the creation of mapping products. This course will focus on this integration of measurements and the uncertainty associated to them.
Prerequisite(s): (MATH 426 or MATH 426H) and (PHYS 407 or PHYS 407S or PHYS 407H or PHYS 401)

Geospatial technologies provide insight into spatial and temporal aspects of environmental and earth systems. Students will master basic skills of a geographical information system. Weekly laboratory exercises will build upon a foundation of conceptual knowledge and data processing skills. Focus on applied research questions and projects will be addressed. The course will use the opensource program QGIS. Additional work will develop programming skills using the python language. Programming background is not a requirement but beneficial.
