Interaction between radiation and surface. Principles of the radar. Properties of the signal. Real aperture radars. Synthetic aperture radars (SAR). Radar sensors not forming imagers. Space programs. Airborne and terrestrial radar. Applications of RADAR systems to terrestrial observation.

5. RADAR interferometry

Radar Interferometry (InSAR). Registration of radar images. Creation of interferograms. MDE obtained with InSAR. Decorrelation and atmospheric effects. Principles of Differential Interferometry (DInSAR). Applications.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The theory classes will be developed through keynote expositions of the theoretical concepts of the subject, in a participative environment, with presentation of applications and examples.

The practice classes will allow the accomplishment of exercises on images captured by hyperspectral, thermal and radar sensors, in a computer classroom and by means of specific software for the image processing.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

With the theory exam, the competences CB6, CB7, CG1IGEO, CG3IGEO, CT5, E02MIGEO, E09MIGEO are evaluated.

Results: RB6, RB7a, RG1IGEO, RG3IGEO, RT4, RT5, RE02MIGEO, RE09MIGEO.

With the accomplishment of practices, the competences CB6, CB7, CB10, CG1IGEO, CG3IGEO, CT4, CT5, E01MIGEO, E02MIGEO, E09MIGEO, E10MIGEO are evaluated.

Results: RB6, RB7a, RB7b, RB7c, RB10, RG1IGEO, RG3IGEO, RT4, RT5, RE01MIGEO, RE02MIGEO, RE09MIGEO, RE10MIGEO.

With the attendance and participation, the competences CB7, CG1IGEO, CT4, CT5, E02MIGEO are evaluated.

Results: RB7a, RG1IGEO, RT4, RT5, RE02MIGEO.

To pass the subject will be necessary to pass the theory exam and the practical work of the subject, independently.

The final score of the subject will be calculated taking into account the weighting of each of the parts (theory and practices).
