CTEMPs Instrument Center

Centers for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs (CTEMPS)The Center for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs (CTEMPs), jointly operated by Oregon State University, Corvallis, and the University of Nevada, Reno, and funded by the National Science Foundation, provides short and intermediate term project access to five field-deployable DTS systems and UAS which can be shipped directly to project sites. We have undergone an expansion of our instrument fleet through a new NSF MRI grant, and are pleased to include Smith College as our newest partner in CTEMPs. We have also added unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to the stable of CTEMPs instrumentation. We currently fly under FAA regulations (both CoA’s and Part 107) airborne visual cameras for topography, multispectral cameras for vegetation mapping, thermal infrared cameras for land surface energy and are just launching a hyperspectral system.
