On September 9-10, CREST hosted the 10th Annual NOAA/NESDIS Cooperative Research Program (CoRP) Science Symposium, “Satellites and Society.” This event was attended by 90 students, scientists, faculty, as well as NOAA administrators. The symposium was organized into four technical sessions: I) Satellite Observations and Climate Vulnerability, Assessment, Mitigation and Adaptation, II) Role of Satellites in Building Resilient Urban Ecosystems and Coastal Communities, III) Satellites and Environmental Assessment and Forecasting, and IV) Importance of Satellites in Building Weather Ready Communities. In addition to the science presentations, students greatly benefited from a panel discussion on “Degree to Career” where they were able to learn about professional and career development opportunities.
The symposium also highlighted the accomplishments of students. The following CREST students were recognized for their outstanding presentations: Andrea Gomez, Robert Foster, and Equisha Glenn from CCNY; Alexa Ross from the University of Wisconsin-Madison; Joan Castro and Jesus Diaz from UPRM.
