Lamar Geospatial Center

The ESS Computer Lab was created for both students and faculty of the Department of Earth and Space Sciences. This is a multipurpose lab for ESS classes requiring the use of computers, for ESS student assignments and other tasks, and for both undergraduate and faculty research. The lab was specifically designed to accommodate the needs of geophysics, geochemistry, GIS, terrestrial and extraterrestrial remote sensing, petroleum/subsurface geology, and hydrogeology classes, but also serves a variety of other disciplines in the earth and space sciences.
