Nick Heath, Ph.D. Candidate

Ph.D. candidate Nick Heath has earned a NASA Fellowship, and along with that, they asked him to write a blog for Earth Science Week. It is meant for a middle school/early high school audience, but we wanted to share it here also.

Field Camp 2014

Each year, EOAS alum Bill Maxwell hosts a dinner party for the field camp participants. This year was no exception as good food and good company made for a fun evening. Thanks to Bill for hosting!

Dr. Ekaterina Maksimova

Dr. Ekaterina Maksimova, (Ph.D. 2012), has received a very prestigious fellowship from the Division of Ocean Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship. This Fellowship will allow Ekatrina to continue her research in the dynamics of ocean circulation in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico with its relation to the ecology of the region. She will affiliate with the College of Marine Science at USF and FSU COAPS.

ISS-RapidScat Artist Concept

Dr. Mark Bourassa is leading the NASA Ocean Vector Winds Science Team that will work with RapidSCAT data. The RapidSCAT instrument is scheduled to launch Sept. 19 and will be attached to the International Space Station. One novel use for this mission is the examination of the diurnal cycle. Other more typical applications are studies of hurricanes (very early stages of tropical development) and ocean upwelling. Dr. Bourassa will be attending the launch.
