The University of Winnipeg’s Centre for Terrestrial And Planetary Exploration (C-TAPE) conducts research to support the exploration of planetary solid surfaces. It is equipped with an array of field-portable instrumentation (e.g., Raman and reflectance spectrometers, X-ray diffractometers and X-ray fluorescence spectrometers), as well as an array of environment chambers that can reproduce a range of planetary conditions and that can be interfaced to various spectrometers. C-TAPE also hosts an extensive spectral database.
