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.

Congress Restricts Collaborations Between NASA Grantees and China

Public Law 112-55, SEC. 539, the legislation addressing appropriations for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), contains a brief statement restricting the use of NASA funds. The bottom line is that NASA funds, including ROSES research grants, can no longer be used “…to participate, collaborate, or coordinate bilaterally in any way with China…”

NASA Rocket Carrying Instruments Built at UNH Launched Into Aurora

With the full sky shimmering in green aurora on Feb. 18, 2012, a team of scientists, including space physicist Marc Lessard and graduate students from UNH’s Space Science Center, launched an instrument-laden, two-stage sounding rocket from the Poker Flat Research Range in Fairbanks, Alaska. The precision measurements from the rocket’s instruments will shed new light on the physical processes that create the northern lights and further our understanding of the complex sun-Earth connection.

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.

UNH Scientists Receive NASA Funds to Measure Impact of Melting Mountain Glaciers for Next IPCC Assessment

Scientists in the Water Systems Analysis Group in the University of New Hampshire’s Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) have been funded by NASA to improve estimates of how melting mountain glaciers around the globe will contribute to sea level rise in the future. The data will be a critical new element in the next assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
