The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated advanced undergraduates who will be rising seniors in summer 2018 to apply for participation in the 10th annual NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP 2018). Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams to study surface, atmospheric, and oceanographic processes. Participants will fly onboard the NASA DC-8 and assist in the operation of instruments to sample and measure atmospheric gases and to image land and water surfaces in multiple spectral bands. Along with airborne data collection, students will participate in taking measurements at field sites. Each student will complete an individual research project from the data collected.
Deadline: 5:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time, January 31, 2018
