Welcome to S T A R S

     S T A R S  is an Internet based remote sensing program that provides information about various aspects of remote sensing. The initial phase of  S T A R S  will focus on meteorology and how to retrieve meteorological information from remote sensing data. Remote Sensing, by definition, is the process of obtaining information from a source without actually coming in contact with that source. But for practical purposes, this involves gathering data of the Earth by using a variety of sensors onboard satellites and aircraft.
