NOAA CESSRST Scientific and Collaborative Research is designed to support NOAA’s long-standing mission of science, service, and stewardship, that generates tremendous value for the Nation—and the world—by advancing our understanding of and ability to anticipate changes in the Earth’s environment, by improving society’s ability to make scientifically informed decisions, and by conserving and managing ocean and coastal resources. NOAA CESSRST collaborative research also aligns and supports NOAA’s leading role in addressing societal problems through integration of remote sensing technologies with multidisciplinary research in environmental systems, socioeconomic drivers, and solutions.
NOAA’s Mission: Science, Service, and Stewardship
- To understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans, and coasts,
To share that knowledge and information with others, and
- To conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources.
Focused on advanced remote sensing observations and big data analysis, the Center’s research goal is responsive to NOAA’s need for improved “Observing, Modeling and Engaging” capabilities, and engage the NOAA-EPP supported students to understand and study the integrated Earth systems and foster a holistic understanding of the environment, enriched with experiential learning opportunities in environmental satellite-related research.
