In an age dominated by talks of climate change and ecological footprints, CU GeoData digs deep into the science of these issues. Our team focuses on designing, building and deploying instrumentation capable of recording a large variety of atmospheric, geologic, and hydrological data. With projects ranging from harmful algal bloom (HABs) detection to solar-powered soil monitoring to measuring the effects of air pollutants on Ithaca’s air quality, we aim to better understand crucial aspects of our environment and shared planet.
