Environmental Remote Sensing and Data Analytics (ERSA) Lab is designed as the central research theme to understand how the world is changing based on quantitative remote sensing. The research uses a variety of remote sensing sensors such as infrared, thermal infrared and microwave radiometers, gamma sensors, drones, to estimate hydro-meteorological parameters, monitor environmental change at local level, and develop algorithms at regional to global scales. The lab is committed to providing research and growth opportunities in STEM. 

ERSA Lab is committed to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education. It supports all levels of learning through its K–12, college and university, and teacher and community programs. STEM skills are crucial to survive in the global race for energy development. They are also important to create as well as maintain a healthy economy, and foster innovation and excellence. ERSA facilitates the communication between faculty and research students to engage with K-12 Students.
