Heliophysics Science: Dynamical And Coupling Processes In The Earth Upper Atmosphere
Posted on Apr 6, 2021 by NASA
The Ionospheric, Thermospheric, and Mesospheric Physics Laboratory at GSFC/NASA performs cutting-edge research on the dynamics of the upper atmosphere and its strong coupling to the lower atmosphere. In particular, opportunities exist to participate in both theoretical and observational studies that expand the science goals of current and new NASA space-based missions focused in the Ionosphere-Thermosphere-Mesosphere (ITM) system, including observations from satellites, rockets, and balloons. We welcome applications from qualified postgraduate students interested in research utilizing measurements from flight missions and enhanced by the coordinated use of optical and radar observations, as well as data from more widespread networks of ground-based sensors which provide the geographical/temporal continuity missing in the spaceborne measurements.
