Seminar class, noformal lectures, no exams, no letter grade

Wednesdays11:00-11:50 AM, Munk Conference Room


OBJECTIVES:  The objectives of this seminar course are to learn both thebasics of InSAR and also go over some of the applications. There will be someintroductory lectures, and each participant will lead the discussion on thetopic of the day. We will have some homework problems to help the participantsto learn some of the more difficult material or review some basics.
