The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated advanced undergraduates who will be rising seniors in summer 2022 to apply for participation in the 14th annual NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP 2022). Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams to study surface, atmospheric, and oceanographic processes. Participants will fly onboard a NASA research aircraft and assist in the operation of instruments to sample and measure atmospheric gases and aerosols 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. The eight-week program begins June 12, 2022 and concludes August 5, 2022.
