Remote sensing is not a discipline in itself, but rather a major, evolving tool applicable to studies of the earth involving the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and the solid earth. ESOC acts as a focus for research, campus-wide, in the use of remote sensing for global geosciences studies. So far, master's and Ph.D. candidates from the departments of Anthropology, Geography, Geological Sciences, Electrical Engineering, EPO Biology and the Interdepartmental Geophysics Program have carried out thesis research in ESOC.
