In addition to some Space Science programs, the Directorate currently is seeking reviewers
specifically for the review of proposals to the Remote Sensing Water Quality
(RSWQ) and Airborne Instrument Technology Transition (AITT) ROSES programs.
Investigators on NASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission, including UNH space physicist Eberhard Möbius, David McComas of the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), and Priscilla Frisch of the University of Chicago, as well as astronomer Seth Redfield of Wesleyan University, presented the mission findings at a press conference from NASA headquarters in Washington, DC on January 30, 2012 and broadcast via NASA TV at www.nasa.gov/sunearth.
UNH space research spans all of the space sciences, with studies ranging from the ionosphere to the Earth's magnetosphere, the local solar system, and out to the farthest reaches of the universe. Investigations of the Earth's environment in the solar system look at space as a laboratory for plasma physics. Theoretical models and and satellite investigations are used to study the solar-terrestrial radiation environment. High energy astrophysics investigations involve the sensing of energetic astrophysical objects with ground, balloon, and satellite detectors.
Fosters research and graduate education in all the space sciences, with studies ranging from the ionosphere, to the Earth’s magnetosphere, to the local solar system, out to the farthest reaches of the universe
With support from NASA, stimulates and enhances science and mathematics education at all levels, providing motivation, improving quality, and increasing access for students, teachers, and the general public
Collaboration with Dartmouth College that brings together researchers from the communities of applied mathematics, astrophysics, computational physics, fluid dynamics, fusion, and space physics to explore fundamental aspects of magnetic reconnection and turbulence
UNH research has had a notably positive impact on the community across a broad range of research areas, due to the efforts of faculty, students, and staff working in the colleges and focused research centers and institutes.
