Remote sensing has the ability to greatly improve our understanding of earth systems. Researchers are actively pursuing remote sensing research to investigate scientific problems in water resources and tectonics. By leveraging large datasets in both deterministic and machine learning models, S&T researchers can quantify changes in groundwater storage, soil moisture, crop water stress and fault movement using a combination of satellite and drone datasets. This research has the potential to improve monitoring and modelling of critical earth resources and hazards, while preparing graduate students for careers in the growing field of geospatial data science.
