Meteorology student earns a summer research opportunity at NASA

Charles Fite will be working this summer on research through the very competitive NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP).  Charley's specific research project at SARP will be determined soon enough, but generally he will be working on aircraft-based studies of the atmosphere and/or land-atmosphere interactions using in situ and remote sensing instrumentation.  The aircraft part of the research will be out of the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center and the analysis will be UC Irvine, all under the mentorship of NASA and academic scientists.  Charley is a rising senior in our Meteorology BSc program and will work with Dr Brian Magi and other faculty on an Honors research project in his senior year as well.  Please congratulate Charley when you see him.  Research opportunities like this are very hard to get.  More info about SARP is at https://airbornescience.nasa.gov/nsrc/sarp
