National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-Cooperative REmote Sensing Science & Technology Center aims to conduct research consistent with NOAA’s interests of Environmental Assessment, Prediction and Environmental Stewardship. NOAA-CREST 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. 

NOAA-CREST members are actively involved in the state-of-the-art research with a focus on remote sensing science and technologies, that closely integrates with NOAA’s mission to protecting and managing the use of coastal resources, increasing our understanding of climate variability and change, and serving society’s need for weather and water information.

Assigned to the National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service’ (NESDIS), Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR), CREST thematic research & education projects are designed to address NOAA’s main missions of Sciences, Services, and Stewardships.
