CREST Scientist Supports Post Hurricane Sandy Research
 

Seven months after hurricane Sandy created major devastation along the New York and New Jersey coastal communities, scientist from NOAA EPP CREST Center at the City University of New York (CUNY) analyzed water quality anomalies around New York City. Professor Jorge Gonzalez, a member of the CREST team, along with his student research team is studying the potential pollution of New York City' s coastal waters.

Experts engaged in researching the impacts to coastal and estuarine environments predict some marked long term contamination of coastal water. Sediments that hurricane Sandy spread throughout the city for more than 100 miles, will soon return to the coast waters and the impacts of these sediments and associated pollutants are being analyzed. UNIVISION television interviewed CREST Professor Gonzales to learn more about the water quality tests that have been conducted in the New York coastal waters.

This interview in the following video is conducted entirely in Spanish. To view, please click here.

MAKING CONNECTIONS: LEADERS IN STEM JOIN STUDENTS TO CELEBRATE CREST DAY
 
The 12th Annual NOAA-CREST Day which was held on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at the City College of New York, facilitated dialogue and connections among national leaders in STEM, and students interested in STEM disciplines and careers. Over 180 participants, including students from high schools in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Long Island, joined students and faculty from CREST to learn more about opportunities at CCNY, and CREST in particular. The event showcased the unique depth and breadth of research in remote sensing sciences conducted at CREST through one-on-one poster sessions, student-led activities and oral presentations.
