NCEO provides the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with national capability in Earth observation science – monitoring the health of our planet through satellite instruments and with world-class capability in interpreting these data.
A NERC research centre with more than 130 scientists distributed across leading UK universities and research organisations, it provides the UK with core expertise in Earth Observation science, data sets and merging techniques, and models evaluation to underpin Earth System research and the UK’s international contribution to environmental science.
NCEO’s scientists work strategically with space agencies, play significant roles in mission planning, and generate internationally-recognised data products from 20 different satellite instruments.
