Become a graduate student in RSGAL

RSGAL is dedicated to increasing the retention and success of underrepresented minorities in geosciences. We will provide you with an opportunity to develop your leadership and independent critical thinking skills & research ideas in the areas of multiscale dynamics of landscape change through the application of remote sensing & GIS. We specifically focus on the three domains of hyperspatial (think LiDAR or sub 1m imagery), hyperspectral and hypertemporal remote sensing, and the fusion of these domains. The qualities we seek in a RSGAL team member include: dedication to research, aptitude for all types of problem solving, self motivation, independent critical thinking and a collaborative spirit.

You are encouraged to contact students & alumni of RSGAL to learn first-hand perspectives what you can expect from us & vise versa. If you would like to schedule a visit please contact Dr. Moskal.

Finally, to pursue a graduate degree or post-doctoral research with RSGAL, you will  need to submit a formal application to the UW-SEFS Graduate Program. RSGAL application evaluation begins in the Summer to Fall each year and following our selection SEFS applications are reviewed in the fall. Notifications of acceptance are sent in the Spring & graduate programs begins in September.
