Undergraduate Student Research
Throughout the year BCCSO students participate in research, experimental design and data acquisition with state of-the-art instruments. Students conduct analysis of data sets and numerical modeling and present findings at research symposiums. Students have the opportunity to work with scientists from NASA, NOAA and other agencies and have been and continue to be placed in the nearby NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
Examples of student research projects include impacts of air pollution on ecosystems, lidar-based wind and water vapor remote sensing, cloud condensation characteristics of aerosols, and gas and aerosol transport in the atmospheric boundary layer, weather forecasting.
