The Centre for Earth Observation Science at the University of Manitoba was created so we can begin to answer these questions. Located on the upper floor of the Wallace Building at the Fort Garry campus, we are an integral part of the Department of Environment and Geography, and our areas of research are diverse.
Arctic Science is a major focus. Mainly on board the CCGS Amundsen, Canada's premier research icebreaker, we study the physical, chemical, biological, and human systems of the Canadian Arctic:
Meteorology is another significant area of research for CEOS, and is not limited to the Arctic. Through numerical modelling, remote sensing, and field observations, we can improve our understanding of atmospheric phenomena such as precipitation, cloud formations, and temperature, and better predict storms and extreme weather.
