Welcome to the Arthur Brant Laboratory for Exploration Geophysics (ABLE)
The ABLE group has a vision to become internationally recognized as a leader in education and research for the application of aerospace remote sensing to planetary exploration, and geothermal energy development in harmony with the environment.
Our goals are to provide an outstanding educational opportunity for geoscientists to learn how to apply the fundamental principles and concepts of geophysical remote sensing, potential fields/electrical methods and geographic information systems, as well as, to conduct applied research to develop and improve the use of geophysical technologies needed by geoscientists.
Our research includes mineral spectroscopy with laboratory, field and aerospace hyperspectral sensors in the reflected and emitted infrared. Our faculty does both Earth-based and Planetary remote sensing.
Please do contact us for additional information.
