Aims: The aim of the doctoral programme is to provide scientific training and researching qualifications in the field of Remote Sensing to culminate in the writing of a doctoral thesis that provides novel knowledge in this field. The doctoral studies shall guarantee the acquisition of the basic competences: systematic understanding of a field of study, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research or creation; ability to make critical and assessment analysis; synthesise new and complex ideas; ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general about this field of knowledge; ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advances in a knowledge-based society.

Description: The Teledetection is a discipline based on measurable measures and testable hypothesis, which has been consolidated as a geographic information source of great interest and which recognises an extraordinary scientific potential and of application. Its scientific studies cover different aspects of our environment and enable greater number of options and aims: providing thematic maps, features and parameters of interest related to the water, the ground, crops and vegetation; providing with periodic and updated information for the short-term and long-term monitoring of these natural processes and contributing to a correct and successful management thereof. Its areas of application include agriculture, the agro environmental impact, natural risks, etc., apart from providing with a way of study for areas without access and/or with a minimum field support.
