Center for Environmental Science Applications (CESA)Finding solutions to sustainability challenges by linking ideas, people and resources
CESA is part of an ASU-UK Urban Consortium including University College London, Newcastle University, and Cambridge University, which plans to better integrate remote sensing into urban models. Members of fhe Consortium met in Newcastle on January 27-28, 2010 and held a small workshop at UCL in London on January 29. A larger workshop on urban sustainability, remote sensing, and decision making was held at University College London, May 20-23, 2010. Presentations and results from the workshop are available elsewhere on the CESA website.
Key members of the consortium from the UK include Jim Hall, Rich Dawson, and Stuart Barr at Newcastle University; Mike Batty and Julian Hunt at UCL; Grant Kopec at Cambridge; Paul Monks and Roland Leigh at University of Leicester; Rajat Gupta at Oxford Brookes University; and Cathy Pickering at IBM. This effort is coordinated with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research's Cities program, headed by Jim Hall.
