The National Science Foundation Centers for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (NSF CREST) has awarded the Center for Geospatial and Environmental Informatics, Modeling and Simulation (GEIMS) to Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. The CREST-GEIMS Center supports research to improve coastal resiliency through three subprojects: Geospatial Informatics, Environmental Informatics and Coastal Community Resilience and Public Health. The Center recruits, mentors, and supports underrepresented minority students as they pursue graduate degrees focusing on coastal resilience. The Center also engages the community by providing STEM outreach opportunities.
