Goetz Instrument Program

In recognition of the long-standing contribution of our co-founder to the field of remote sensing, and in honor of his 21 years with the University of Colorado, ASD has established this annual program designed to further encourage a creative research environment within the Remote Sensing and Field Spectroscopy world-wide community. The intent is to provide a simple mechanism for supporting small research efforts which can quickly establish concept viability, or rule out further consideration, by providing temporary use of a field spectroradiometer, which might otherwise be difficult to obtain.

Each recipient will also be eligible to receive up to a total of $500 to cover publication charges (if the resulting paper is published in an approved publication) and/or travel assistance for presentation of an accepted abstract at a relevant scientific conference. Proposal submissions for the seventh annual competition must be received by October 15, 2012. This deadline is firm so that the review committee can consider applications during the following month and select recipients. Winners will be announced in early December 2012.

The submissions to the programs opens on April 23, 2012. Make sure you check the eligibility and selection criteria on the ADS Inc. website:
