CUNY Remote Sensing Earth Systems Institute (CUNY-CREST) 

An Internationally recognized research collaborative for advancing Earth System Science and Engineering through State-of-the-art Technologies.

Our mission is to develop environmental information and technical capabilities needed for research on processes affecting the Earth System at multiple scales and for planning a sustainable society by compiling Remote Sensing Observations and Modeling Resources into set of Scientific Investigations and Data Products and by supporting the Educational Mission of the University, all in partnerships with Researchers, Technology Companies, Local, National and International Organizations.

The Institute research focuses on all aspects of remote sensing – sensor development, satellite remote sensing, ground-based field measurements, data processing and analysis, modeling, and forecasting. CREST recruits and train undergraduate, masters and doctoral students with a main focus on unrepresented minorities in STEM sciences.

CREST research covers wild variety of topics including

  •  Global Climate studies
  •  Atmosphere and Weather
  •  Water Resources and Land Processes
  •  Ocean and Coastal Waters
