The Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) is holding numerous tutorial sessions throughout the summer focused on a wide variety of topics such as glaciology, writing reports,entrepreneurship, radar principles, and other subjects relevant to the CReSIS goals. Students in the URE OMS program attend these sessions via teleconference with the institution presenting the tutorial.
The Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) Center for Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) is partnering with several other institutions sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of a Science and Technology Center (STC) with the University of Kansas. This partnership is intended to develop models and technology to arrive at a better understanding of the mass balance of polar ice sheets. CReSIS studies how this mass balance affects the rising sea level that glaciologists have observed.
