●  Introduction of Oceanography


An introduction is related with physical, chemical, geological and biological processes in the ocean. Topics involve survey of the earth, physical properties of seawater, heat budge in the ocean, interaction between sea and atmosphere, marine biology, marine chemistry and the circulation of CO2 in the ocean.


●  InSAR Technology and Its Application 


An overview is related with the application of advance InSAR technology in physical oceanography, geology, glaciology as well as the biomass derivation. Topics include element concepts related with traditional SAR, polarimetric SAR and InSAR, the ocean current and ocean wave derivation from InSAR, the states of change detection in geology and glaciology with InSAR.
