Airborne Sensor FacilityAirborne Sensor Facility
The Airborne Sensor Facility provides remote sensing systems development for the Airborne Science Program; calibration and validation of the Earth Observing System's Earth science investigations; and system operation, data processing, calibration and maintenance of Code Y facility remote sensing instruments.

Reinas Project
he Baskin Center of the University of California, Santa Cruz, in cooperation with meteorological and oceanographic scientists of the Monterey Bay region from the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI),is creating a real-time system for data acquisition, data management, and visualization.

Biological and Satellite Oceanography Laboratory
Multiple groups are involved in remote sensing research at UCSC. Our group is focused on the study of phytoplankton dynamics in the Eastern Pacific Ocean coastal region. In combination with other researchers at UCSC and partner institutions we utilize satellite based remote sensing imagery, insitu mooring data, and bio-optical shipboard instruments to model ocean ecosystem dynamics.

Hyperspectral Imaging Project
We are a group of interdisciplinary scientists engaged in studying the Earth's geology and biological ecosystems through the eyes of hyperspectral remote sensing instruments. Our primary working group consists of geologists, biologists, and a physicist.

The GIS Lab offers separate teaching and research facilities with a variety of current hardware and software resources. Both facilities are located in the Interdisiplinary Science Building (ISB) on the UC Santa Cruz campus. These facilities are available to students, faculty, staff, and non-profit organizations working on GIS related research or projects.
