NCEO’s capabilities are shared between five scientific core units supported by additional expert scientists at other research organisations. NCEO capabilities sit alongside two scientific facilities and a data centre. The NCEO Directorate is at the University of Leicester, co-located with NCEO Director Professor John Remedios, and at the University of Reading, Imperial College and King’s College London.
We organise ourselves according to three broad scientific activities: Data Assimilation; EO Data-Model Evaluation; and EO Instrumentation and Facilities. These are shown in the diagram below as three divisions, which are led by Division Directors. Along with the Director, the Division Directors comprise the NCEO Executive Team, which provides the strategic and decision making forum for NCEO.
