*2014 NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP)*
June 15 - August 8, 2014
The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated advanced
undergraduates to apply for participation in the NASA Student Airborne
Research Program (SARP 2014). SARP provides students with hands-on
researchexperience in all aspects of a major scientific campaign, from
planning on how to achieve mission objectives to formal presentation of
results and conclusions to peers and others.
Participants will fly onboard the NASA DC-8 aircraft where they will 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. Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams to study
surface, atmospheric, and oceanographic processes. Each student will
develop his/her own individual research project. Many students have gone
on to present their results at conferences such as AGU, AMS, and ASLO.
Instrument and flight preparations, and the research flights themselves,
will take place at NASA’s Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility, in Palmdale,
CA. Post-flight data analysis and interpretation will take place at the
University of California, Irvine. Applicants must have a strong academic
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. We especially encourage applications from
studentsmajoring in Earth, environmental or atmospheric sciences and
SARP participants will receive round-trip travel to California, housing and
transportation during the 8-week program, a $3000 stipend and a $2500 meals
The deadline for all applications is *Feb. 7, 2014*.
Applicants must be US citizens currently enrolled in a four-year college or
university. Preference in admission will be given to current undergraduate
juniors (rising seniors in summer 2014).
