(Apply by Feb. 10; Apply by Jan. 20 for Early Acceptance; Internship June 17-Aug. 10)
The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated junior and senior undergraduate and early graduate students to apply for participation in the NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP 2012). The summer internship program provides student with hands-on research experience in all aspects of a major scientific campaign. Students will work in four multi-disciplinary teams to study surface, atmospheric, and oceanographic processes. Participants will fly onboard the NASA P-3B aircraft, where they will assist in the operation of instruments to sample and measure atmospheric gases, and to image land and water surface in multiple spectral bands. The flights will take place at NASA’s Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility, in Palmdale, Calif. Post-flight data analysis and interpretation will take place at the University of California, Irvine.
Applicants must have a strong background in any of the physical, chemical, or biological sciences, or engineering, and an interest in applying their background to the study of the Earth system.
