CIMSS / SSEC – UW-Madison

Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University
Research Initiative

A cooperative research initiative between the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the University of Wisconsin Cooperative Inistitute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (UW-CIMSS), and the University of Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology (UH-HIGP) including a subcontract with Texas A&M University

Principal Investigator: H.-L. Allen Huang (UW-CIMSS)
Program Manager: Wayne Feltz (UW-CIMSS)

This Office of Naval Research (ONR), Department of Defense (DoD) research effort has three main long-term goals. They are:
  • to bridge the physical principles of a hyperspectral data retrieval problem with the mathematical algorithms that try to solve it;
  • mathematically quantify the location of useful information to complete a physically-driven application in the electromagnetic spectrum, and
  • develop physically-based hyperspectral data processing applications for surface material identification, atmospheric parameter retrieval formulation, and coastal water quality assessment.
