Congratulations to our six JPSS Interns on completing this year’s internship 

The goal of the JPSS SPARKS program is to groom the next-generation cadre of JPSS scientists through pragmatic education and training. The program was co-led by the CREST, IMSG and CICS-MD. Dr. Shakila Merchant (CREST) is the task leader of the grant and Dr. Murty Divakarla (IMSG) is the on-site leader while Dr. E. Hugo Berbery (CICS) is a collaborator on the task. Michael Wilson (IMSG) led the classes, which included computer training and guest lectures from NOAA Scientists working with JPSS. In addition, each of the six students had a NOAA mentor to work with on a summer research project. The program just wrapped up and the students gave their presentations on their projects on Tuesday, August 6.
