NOAA Cultivates Young Scientists at the 10th NOAA CREST Symposium

10th Annual NOAA/NESDIS/STAR/CoRP Science Symposium at the NOAA CREST Center

30 September 2014 - On September 9-10, CREST hosted the 10th Annual NOAA/NESDIS Cooperative Research Program (CoRP) Science Symposium, "Satellites and Society." This event was attended by 90 students, scientists, faculty, and participants from NOAA. The symposium was organized into four technical sessions: Satellite Observations and Climate Vulnerability, Assessment, Mitigation and Adaptation, Role of Satellites in Building Resilient Urban Ecosystems and Coastal Communities, Satellites and Environmental Assessment and Forecasting, and Importance of Satellites in Building Weather Ready Communities.

In addition to the science presentations, students greatly benefited from a panel discussion on "Degree to Career" where they were able to learn about opportunities for graduate students and early career scientists and typical hiring organizations for scientists at the start of their careers. The symposium highlighted the accomplishments of students, as 13 graduate students gave oral presentations and over 25 students participated in the poster session. The oral and poster presentations were judged by faculty and NOAA scientists and the following students were recognized: Andrea Gomez (1st place oral, CCNY), Robert Foster (2nd place oral, CCNY), Alexa Ross (3rd place oral, University of Wisconsin- Madison), Joan Castro (1st place poster, UPRM), Jesus Diaz (2nd place poster, UPRM), and Equisha Glenn (3rd place poster, CCNY).
