Established in 2001 through a national competition, and funded by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA, “NOAA/EPP Grant # NA11SEC4810004"), the NOAA-CREST center is led by The City University of New York and brings together Hampton University, University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, California State University, and University of Maryland Baltimore County, and industrial partners like Raytheon, Northrop Grumman and IMSG.
The Center’s research focuses on all aspects of remote sensing - sensor development, satellite remote sensing, ground-based field measurements, data processing and analysis, modeling, and forecasting. Besides training of the students, the program also includes seminars, summer internships with NOAA, and with industrial partners, and school-year research assistantship.
NOAA-CREST students and faculty/researchers work in line with 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. NOAA CREST members also work in close collaborations with other NOAA line office including National Weather Service (NWS), Office of Atmospheric Research (OAR), and National Ocean Services (NOS).
A Center which rigorously trains a diverse cadre of professionals through outreach, education and participation in state-of-the-art in quality research which is recognized as essential and meets NOAA’s needs in remote sensing science and technology, so that graduates of the program are capable.
To educate and train a diverse cadre of students and early career scientists and engineers to become highly competent professionals in NOAA related STEM sciences through participation in state-of-the-art research in an internationally recognized CREST Center for remote sensing science and technologies, with the research closely integrated with NOAA to support and promote strategic goals in Climate Mitigation and Adaptation, Weather-Ready Nation, Healthy Oceans and Resilient Coastal Communities.
Graduates of CREST will have been immersed in the scientific culture relevant to NOAA and educated and familiarized with NOAA relevant technical skills so as to be able to readily integrate with and contribute to NOAA activities. These include producing and analyzing integrated remote sensing data products and providing the information needed for planning actions to adapt and mitigate the effects of severe weather, anthropogenic impacts and climate change on urbanized coastal environments. Their research training also equips them to develop, validate and apply advanced remote sensing technologies to investigate coupling processes and monitor the condition of urbanized coastal environments (land, atmosphere, and ocean) for developing forecasting capabilities, managing resources and assessing the potential effects of changes. Generally they can also be expected to support NOAA’s mission by development and evaluation of calibration and validation techniques and by transferring analysis methods to operations; and to produce and serve as a recognized source for integrated remote sensing data products, diagnostic models and information concerning environmental processes and the effects of changes on all the components of coastal environments with an emphasis on urbanized coastal regimes.
