Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, University of Kansas

Data Center Description
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2005, with the mission of developing new technologies and computer models to measure and predict the response of sea level change to the mass balance of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.  NSF’s Science and Technology Center (STC) program combines the efforts of scientists and engineers to respond to problems of global significance, supporting the intense, sustained, collaborative work that is required to achieve progress in these areas.  CReSIS provides students and faculty with opportunities to pursue exciting research in a variety of disciplines; to collaborate with world-class scientists and engineers in the US and abroad; and to make meaningful contributions to the ongoing, urgent work of addressing the impact of climate change.
CReSIS is comprised of six partner universities, with the headquarters located at the lead institution, the University of Kansas.  The other universities are Elizabeth City State University, Indiana University, University of Washington, The Pennsylvania State University, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.  In addition to this core group, CReSIS collaborates with several international institutions and industry partners.
