Comparative Planetology Laboratory (CPL)


The Comparative Planetology Laboratory (CPL) was founded at the University of Louisville in 2000.  The scope of the CPL spans all aspects of solar system exploration, with particular emphasis on the development of theoretical models that apply to two or more planets.

The CPL is home to the EPIC Atmospheric Model. The latest version of the model may be downloaded from NASA's Planetary Data System (PDS) Atmospheres node.
