NASA Postdoctoral Program - Earth Science: Analysis and Interpretation of Satellite-Based Spectroscopic Measurements (17690)
Date added: 17 September 2018
Location: Maryland, USA
Application deadline: 01 November 2018
The NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) offers US and international scientists the opportunity to advance their research while contributing to NASA's scientific goals. The NPP supports fundamental science; explores the undiscovered; promotes intellectual growth; and encourages scientific connections.
The acquisition of a long-term data base on high-altitude ozone, total ozone, and ultraviolet (UV) solar irradiance by instruments in Earth orbit is now allowing detailed studies of the driving mechanisms of and the time scales involved in upper-atmospheric variability. In addition, spectroscopic measurements of the Earth's backscattered spectrum as seen from space reveal the presence and variability of trace gases, such as nitric oxide and sulphur dioxide.
