The regional and global scope of environmental problems is now well established. Satellite remote sensing provides the only feasible means of monitoring large regions of the earth and its land and water resources in a timely fashion. Remotely sensed data can be combined with other resource data in a computerized geographic information system (GIS). The GIS provides a powerful set of tools to store, integrate, analyze, and graphically display vast amounts of environmental data. The Environmental Geomatics Certificate is designed to give students, regardless of major, an understanding and working knowledge of remote sensing and GIS technology and its application to environmental resource monitoring and management.

The certificate is administered through the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources. For further information, contact Dr. Richard Lathrop in the Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences Building, Room 129, 932-1580, or lathrop@crssa.rutgers.edu.
