Limb Imaging Fourier transfer spectrometer Experiment (LIFE) Characterization and Testing
The University of Saskatchewan (U of S) specializes in developing and building instruments which make detailed measurements of the composition of the atmosphere. These measurements provide a key link to the Earths climate system and are important in estimating and predicting air quality. The U of S has partnered with ABB Inc. to develop an instrument called LIFE which measures greenhouse gases. This internship will focus on developing software to control and acquire data from the instrument. The intern will study LIFE and the programming system used by ABB. This understanding will allow the intern to collaborate with ABB in customizing the software to suit the needs of the University of Saskatchewan.
