Adventures in Science: Cynthia Twohy is participating in an instrumentation test flight program
Cynthia is aboard an NSF/NCAR Gulfstream-V aircraft. This is in preparation for a 2018 study where she will be measuring physical and chemical properties of clouds over the Antarctic Ocean.
Thank you Cynthia!
Accolade: K.D. Leka has been appointed, “Designated Foreign Professor”
For the next 5 years, K.D. will spend 2-3 mo/yr at Nagoya University Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research. She will supervise post-doc and graduate students on understanding the triggers of solar energetic events, and organizing a small workshop on operational solar flare forecast performance.
(And, as she says, “Hopefully, also improving my Japanese!”)
