Remote Sensing Laboratory

Harilal B. Menon
Professor

Lab co-ordinator |  Dept. of Marine Sciences

    A Remote Sensing Laboratory has been established with financial assistance from Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The facilities of the laboratory include hardware consisting of five computers and software necessary for image processing. Image processing package such as ERDAS IMAGINE has been procured. Different PG level programmes at the departments of University have a component on the use of remote sensing techniques. This laboratory facilitates resources, provides training to the students who opt for such a course on remote sensing or plug a component in their research thereby build the country's need for trained manpower in this field. The laboratory is also being used for the sponsored projects work funded by different agencies like Naval Research Bard, Space Applications Centre, Space Physics Laboratory of VSSC, ISRO and Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Service of MoES, etc.

    Laboratory at a glance:

    • Instruments for in-situ observations of radiance and irradiance
    • Spectrophotometer for analysing the optically active constituents from samples
    • Sunphotometer for measuring aerosol optical depth
