Seminar class, noformal lectures, no exams, no letter grade
Wednesdays11:0011:50 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.
