Facility receives $2 million to conduct satellite research

The Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing, a Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science facility, will receive a $2 million check from Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart.

The center is expected to use the money to conduct research using data retrieved from earth orbiting satellites. The center is used to assess the health of ecological communities and gather data to help determine environmental disturbances in northern South America, Central America, the Caribbean Basin, Gulf of Mexico and Southeastern U.S.
