The NOAA EPP Cooperative Science Center for Earth System Science and Remote Sensing Technologies Center aims to conduct research consistent with NOAA’s interests of Environmental Assessment, Prediction, and Environmental Stewardship. NOAA-CESSRST research creates a framework to recruit, educate, train, and graduate undergraduate and graduate students especially from underrepresented minority communities for professional opportunities and thus create a diverse STEM workforce for NOAA, other federal agencies, private sectors, and academia.
CUNY’S Cooperative Center for Earth System Sciences & Remote Sensing Technologies is a multidisciplinary center is led by the City College. The participating institutions are geographically distributed across the nation and enjoy a high enrollment of under-represented minority students. It is a consortium of six institutions, led by The City College of The City University of New York (CCNY)in partnership with
- Hampton University (HU)
- San Diego State University (SDSU)
- University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC)
- University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez (UPRM)
- University of Texas, El Paso (UTEP)
These institutions form a broad-based research team in remote sensing applied to earth, atmospheric, environmental, and marine sciences.
The Center’s research and training focus on all aspects of remote sensing including sensor development, satellite remote sensing, ground-based field measurements, data processing and analysis, modeling, and forecasting. The center is an outstanding example of collaboration among institutions to educate and train students in the field of environmental remote sensing by conducting research consistent with NOAA’s Science Goals and Missions. Recruitment and training focus on mentoring undergraduate, master's, and doctoral students into scientific and engineering disciplines in which they can specialize in remote sensing.
The Center's students and faculty/researchers work in line with the National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service’ (NESDIS), Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR), the center's thematic research & education projects are designed to address NOAA’s main missions of Sciences, Services, and Stewardships. NOAA-CESSRST members also work in close collaborations with other NOAA line offices including the National Weather Service (NWS), Office of Atmospheric Research (OAR), and National Ocean Services (NOS).
