NASA Seeking Reviewers for Remote Sensing Water Quality and Airborne Instrument Technology Transition Programs

NASA’s Science Mission Directorate would like to direct scientists' attention to its new volunteer reviewer web form at http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/volunteer-review-panels/.

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.

UNH Space Scientist Helps IBEX Team Present Mission Findings at NASA Press Conference

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.

Space Science

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.

Space Science Center (SSC)

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

NH Space Grant Consortium (NH Space Grant)

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

Center for Integrated Computation and Analysis of Reconnection and Turbulence (CICART)

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

Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS)

A multidisciplinary scientific research institute dedicated to understanding the integrated behavior of the Earth and its surrounding universe
