09 Jun NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP) 2010
The Student Airborne Research Program (SARP) is a six-week summer program for junior and senior undergraduate and early graduate students to acquire hands-on research experience in all aspects of a scientific campaign using NASA’s DC-8 airborne science laboratory.
Up to 30 university students are competitively selected for the program, which is held annually in Southern California.
Participants working in multi-disciplinary teams are involved in detailed planning of an airborne science campaign, and assist in the operation of two airborne instruments on the DC-8.
Research topics include:
Remote sensing of oceanographic processes in Monterey Bay and the Santa Barbara Channel
Evapotranspiration from crops in the San Joaquin Valley
Air quality effects of dairy emissions in California’s Central Valley
