The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation (link is external) (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. The NSF’s Science and Technology Center (link is external)(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.

The University of Kansas (link is external) serves as the lead institution for CReSIS, which is comprised of six additional partner institutions: Elizabeth City State University (link is external), Indiana University (link is external), University of Washington (link is external), The Pennsylvania State University (link is external), Los Alamos National Laboratory (link is external), and the Association of Computer and Information Science Engineering Departments at Minority Institutions (link is external). In addition to this core group, CReSIS collaborates with several international institutions and industry partners.
