NERC Field Spectroscopy Facility

Supporting UK environmental scientists with cutting edge techniques and technology, free at the point of use.

We are delighted to anounce that we have been recomissioned for the next five year, and starting from the 1st of April we'll be starting some new exciting projects (more on that later). Our new projects will be time consuming, so we may need to be more selective in the projects we support this year, but we promise it will be worth the wait and give those doing Earth Observation in the UK some useful new tools. Read the NERC press release.

The NERC Field Spectroscopy Facility maintains and provides a pool of state-of-the-art spectroscopy instruments for use by the UK research community. We are also heavily involved with training, instrument development and calibration/validation, helping you to get the most out of your data and your field season. Please see our Mission Statement for further information.

We are located in GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh and are overseen by NCEO on behalf of NERC.
