Earth Remote Sensing (ERS) takes into consideration the many factors that are changing the Earth such as growing population, urbanization, land use and climate change. ERS is the science of collecting data from satellite, aircraft, marine vehicles, radar and other ground instruments to create interpretations that answer vital questions about the earth. Graduates with a master's in earth remote sensing develop this expertise for application to vital contemporary problems: agriculture, coastal zone management, ecology, engineering, environmental science and resource management, forestry, land use, meteorology, natural hazards, oceanography, urban planning and more.
