Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

a) GEO FUNDAMENTALS [1]

 

Aims and objectives

This course offers a broad overview of the fundamental characteristics of the physical environment of the Earth. It is specifically aimed to describe the main processes regulating our planet's functioning systems, as well as the phenomena that emerge from their interactions. Special emphasis is placed on Earth observation via remote sensing as a tool to describe and understand global patterns and global change. 

This course deals with topics concerning the UN Sustainable Development Goals 15 (Life on Land), 14 (Life Below Water), 13 (Climate Action) and 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production). 

Course topics

The course is divided into five parts:

Preliminaries: environmental spheres; global change; spatial tools.

The atmosphere: global energy balance; temperature, winds and global circulation; weather and climate systems.

The hydrosphere: hydrologic cycle, moisture and precipitation; global ocean, fresh water, cryosphere.

The geosphere: lithosphere; weathering; global soils.

The biosphere: energy and matter flows in ecosystems;  biogeography and biodiversity; sustainability.

 These topics will be covered in succession and will be accompanied by tutorial classes as appropriate.

 

b) GEO FUNDAMENTALS  [2]

 

This module provides fundamental notions of geomatics.

Statistics. Observables and observations, random errors, Gaussian distribution, variance and standard deviation, n-dimensional case and covariance matrix, mean and covariance propagation. Least squares and chi square test.

Reference Frames. Earth structure and shape: geoid, ellipsoid, geoid ondulation and deflection, cartesian and geodetic coordinates. Spherical and local planar approximations.

Surveying instruments. Theodolite, EDM, level: instruments and observation equations

Cartography. Mapping the sphere: equations; the UTM projection. Digital Terrain Models

Classwork. Transformations between coordinate and heights systems. Mean computation, variance computation: 1D, n-D; covariance propagation. Direct intersection, levelling: propagation and closure analysis. Stereo/polar coordinates computation
