About the Series

Purpose of the Class

The class, which is required for the minor in Remote Sensing, is intended to provide students exposure to a variety of ways in which remote sensing (broadly defined) can be applied to earth, planetary, and space sciences. Graduate and undergraduate students interested in remote sensing and related topics may take the class. The class may be taken multiple times for credit.

The class grade is determined by attendance and participation. There are no exams, only short written assignments. 1 Credit, Offered Fall, Spring.

Open to all juniors, seniors and grad students! Visitors to lectures are welcome!

M and M U113

About Richard Honrath

The Richard E. Honrath Memorial Fund
Dr. Richard E. Honrath
1961 - 2009

To honor Richard and to support his vision of scholarship, a memorial fund has been established. This fund will provide support for Richard E. Honrath Memorial Lecture and for undergraduate and graduate students whose major and/or research demonstrate a commitment to protecting the environment and/or the pursuit of knowledge about our earth's natural forces. Lecturers will be internationally recognized scholars in the arena of Atmospheric Sciences who will interact substantially with students during their visit.
