Remote Sensing by Satellite for Environmental Education: A Survey and a Proposal for Teaching at Upper Secondary and University Level.
Knowledge of the environment has grown to such an extent that information technology (IT) is essential to make sense of the available data. An example of this is remote sensing by satellite. In recent years this field has grown in importance and remote sensing is used for a range of uses including the automatic survey of wheat yields in North America, the examination of the rain forests in South America, the observance of extension measures in Europe, and the examination of land use in Germany. This paper describes different aspects of remote sensing by satellite using relevant examples. Methods of using remote sensing in environmental education at the upper secondary level and the university level are outlined. Key principles, methods of using satellite data in class, modular structure, and future developments are discussed. Contains 11 references. (JRH)
