Will Remote be the same next year? It says it's pending to be human impact again, but does anyone know yet?

I figure its probably the same, since it was mars for a few years, and its only been human impact on the environment for one.

Great job in Astronomy, by the way!


Oh wow, that tutorial was one of the first things I looked at for the event. Why did he think that we should have known to study it?

Thanks!

Guys, I was specifically talking about the Canada RST, which is the best intro tutorial. NASA is much more advanced.
Old Events:
Astronomy, Remote Sensing (Both Mars and Global Warming), Dynamic Planet (Oceanography/Earthquakes and Volcanoes), It's About Time, Technical Problem Solving, and I really don't want to count, but did fail at-Fermi Questions.

Does anyone have Remote Sensing tests from their specific states from last year? If so, could you send me them. Our invitational test is already on the test exchange.

theoneandonly wrote:Remote sensing is the acquisition of information of an object or phenomenon with sensing devices that are not in physical contact with the object. In context with Science Olympiad, they are generally in reference to a heavenly body such as the Earth using satellite imagery. For the past two years, the event has focused on Mars, but it has returned to Earth for this next year.

Basically, the event is all about looking at satellite images of the Earth's surface and being able to identify the type of imaging used (infrared, false-color, true-color, etc.) and then being able to interpret the image. This may include identifying landforms, natural and man-made processes, or other specific phenomenon.

It's the post you go to when you click "Event Description" on the table of contents. And btw that was really useful.

It looks like they took the link to the tests off from the site... I guess they don't want other teams stealing their invitational's tests. :|
