JPSS SPARKS 2019 !!
JPSS is the Joint Polar Satellite System, and represents NOAA’s latest generation of polar orbiting environmental satellites. Graduate students or upper-level undergraduate students with a background in an environmental science or engineering background are welcome to apply. Computer programming experience in multiple languages is encouraged, and will serve as a foundation for training with GPA 3.0 and above .
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.
