The YCEO supports a diverse group of research projects in the earth sciences. Many of the students who take the course Observing the Earth From Space use the YCEO and satellite image analysis as part of their Senior Projects, Master’s theses, or Ph.D. dissertations. In addition, several faculty projects are underway in the fields of Anthropology, Climatology, Ecology, Forestry, Geology, Geophysics, Hydrology, Meteorology and Public Health. One valuable service that the YCEO provides is to bring together faculty interested in remote sensing with students trained in the technology.
