PHSC 128 PHSC 121B

Atmospheric Lidar Research Group Laboratory and Field Facilities

Members of the Atmospheric Lidar Research Group can usually be found working in one of three places: Physical Science Building (PHSC) room 128 (top left photo), PHSC 121B (top right photo), or the Lidar Field Site (bottom left) at the University Farm.

The labs in PHSC on campus are equipped with high end workstations for students and staff. PHSC 128 provides areas and tools for maintaining lidar system components. Most of the post-field phase data processing is performed on a dual-processor server with 16-cores, 64 GB of RAM, 32 TB of hard disk, and four Nvidia K20 GPUs. We use IDL, Phyton, and CUDA as computer programming languages to write custom software to process the lidar data.
