The Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL) @ UPR Arecibo
The Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL) is a research and educational virtual laboratory dedicated to studies of the habitability of Earth, the Solar System, and extrasolar planets. The laboratory is part of a proposal by Prof. Abel Méndez from the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo. Current focus is on global terrestrial models to trace the evolution of terrestrial habitability from paleoclimates to climate change. We also mantain links to scientific and educational content, data and software tools related to planetary habitability and astrobiology that might be of interest to scientists, students, and the general public.
