Thanx...I used to coach Science Olympiad in Indiana. Currently I am working on my PhD in remote sensing at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I saw several comments about recommended reading. I highly recommend both of John Jensen's books on remote sensing (Remote Sensing of the Environment and Advanced Digital Image Processing) though the first is probably the most useful.
I know this event can be difficult to study for since there are not very many practice tests out there. In my opinion you should know the different types of platforms (i.e. radar, lidar etc). I wrote one of the regional test for Nebraska and I posted it on my university's ftp server which can be reached at:
I do not make any promises on how long it will stay up. Good luck!
A couple things?
Can we use it on our test exchange? (If not, at least add the link?)
Could you please repost it in Word 97-03 Compatibility Mode?
I don't care if you put it on the test exchange. I added MS Word 97-03 files and PDF versions to the ftp link.
Regionals is tomorrow, and now I'm worried...
I was expecting an easy gold (I got one at a invitational ten times harder than our regionals) but now I'm not half as sure...
That's one hard test...
Well, I added it to the test exchange!
Thanx for the test...and the wake-up call!
