NASA Airborne Science Program

*NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP)*

The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated advanced
undergraduates majoring in any of the STEM disciplines to apply for
participation in the NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP 2015).
The purpose of the Student Airborne Research Program is to provide students
with hands-on experience in all aspects of a major Earth Science research
campaign, from detailed planning on how to achieve mission objectives to
formal presentation of results and conclusions to peers and others.

Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams to study surface,
atmospheric, and oceanographic processes.  Participants will fly onboard
and assist in the operation of instruments on the NASA DC-8 research
aircraft 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 develop an individual research project from the
data collected.

Outstanding faculty and staff for this program will be drawn from several
universities and NASA centers, as well as from NASA flight operations and
engineering personnel. The eight-week program begins June 14, 2015 and
concludes August 7, 2015.  Instrument and flight preparations, and the
research flights themselves, will take place during the first two weeks of
the program at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center, in Palmdale, CA.
Post-flight data analysis and interpretation will take place during the
final six weeks of the program at the University of California, Irvine.

SARP participants will receive free housing and transportation during the
8-week program, a $3000 stipend, plus a $3000 travel and food allowance.

Applicants must be US citizens.

Applications can be found at the SARP 2015 website
