2 2 Ongoing JPL Earth Science Missions (1 of 3)

3 3 Ongoing JPL Earth Science Missions (2 of 3)

4 4 Ongoing JPL Earth Science Missions (3 of 3)

5 5 JPL Earth Science Missions in Development * (1 of 2) Using advanced radar imaging that will provide an unprecedented, detailed view of Earth, the NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar, or NISAR, satellite is designed to observe and take measurements of some of the planet's most complex processes, including ecosystem disturbances, ice- sheet collapse, and natural hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and landslides. Extending the timeline of ocean surface topography measurements begun by the Topex/Poseidon and Jason 1 and 2 satellites, Jason 3 will make highly detailed measurements of sea-level on Earth to gain insight into ocean circulation and climate change. Designed to make the first- ever global survey of Earth's surface water, the Surface Water and Ocean Topography, or SWOT, satellite will collect detailed measurements of how water bodies on Earth change over time. The Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3, or OCO-3, is a future space instrument designed to investigate important questions about the distribution of carbon dioxide on Earth as it relates to growing urban populations and changing patterns of fossil fuel combustion. *Some of these are Proposed Missions - Pre-decisional - for Planning and Discussion Purposes Only

6 6 JPL Earth Science Missions in Development* (2 of 2) The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-on (GRACE-FO) mission is a partnership between NASA and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). GRACE-FO is a successor to the original GRACE mission, which began orbiting Earth on March 17, For more information on JPL Earth Science Missions, see: on_type=&launch_date=#submit *Some of these are Proposed Missions - Pre-decisional - for Planning and Discussion Purposes Only

7 7 Opportunities to Get Involved JPL offers a broad range of opportunities for students and faculty to get involved in JPL programs. ASU is a Strategic University Research Partner (SURP), providing additional opportunities to get involved. The SURP program supports: RESEARCH - Encourage JPL-University collaborations that:RESEARCH - Encourage JPL-University collaborations that: –Combine and further strategic goals of both institutions –Facilitate joint access to JPL and university capabilities in science, technology and engineering –Gain and maintain better understanding of state of the research in the broader community EDUCATION - Support students in Space Exploration topics:EDUCATION - Support students in Space Exploration topics: –Support graduate student research on topics of interest to JPL/NASA –Encourage student participation in JPL summer programs –Offer input regarding courses of strong interest to NASA PIPELINE - Support access to top quality students:PIPELINE - Support access to top quality students: –Ensure a pipeline to meet future technical challenges –Cultivate JPL's future workforce

8 8 The SURP Program The Strategic University Partnership Program supports collaborative research and educational activities via an annual Call for Proposals.The Strategic University Partnership Program supports collaborative research and educational activities via an annual Call for Proposals. Proposals must include participation by one or more of JPL's Strategic University Partners.Proposals must include participation by one or more of JPL's Strategic University Partners. The research and educational awards are for up to $100K and $25K for one year, with renewal proposals encouraged to allow for the continuity of graduate student research for up to two years.The research and educational awards are for up to $100K and $25K for one year, with renewal proposals encouraged to allow for the continuity of graduate student research for up to two years. Summer internships at JPL for students can be linked to the research awards.Summer internships at JPL for students can be linked to the research awards. For more information, visit

9 9 Other Opportunities to Get Involved: SURF The Caltech Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship, or SURF, provides undergraduate students pursing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics with an introduction to the research process under the guidance of seasoned mentors at JPL and Caltech.The Caltech Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship, or SURF, provides undergraduate students pursing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics with an introduction to the research process under the guidance of seasoned mentors at JPL and Caltech. –This program is open to Caltech and non-Caltech undergraduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. –Open to U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (LPRs) –Students carry out their research over a 10-week summer internship –Minimum 2.5 GPA –Students must complete their second semester or third quarter at their college or university –Participants will receive a total stipend of $6,000 –Housing and travel allowances are not provided, however, program participants have the option of living in the Caltech dormitories for the summer guest housing rate.
