Announcing the 2019 NASA Planetary Volcanology Workshop, July 11-17, 2019, in Hawaii: Analogs to Volcanic Features and Processes in Satellite and Rover Images
This NASA-sponsored workshop will provide field-based experience on Hawaiian volcanoes. We will study volcanic features analogous to those on Mars that have been imaged recently by orbiter and rover missions, comparing their field characteristics to their appearance in remotely-sensed images. The workshop is intended for NASA-funded senior graduate students who are currently working on volcanology problems on Mars (or any other planet besides Earth), but are in need of field experience on volcanoes.
All expenses, including travel, will be covered on a reimbursement basis. Please note that although U.S. citizenship is not required, all applicants MUST be students or employees at a U.S. University or Institution, AND their current study or work must be funded by a NASA planetary research program. Because space is limited, preference will be given to graduate students, but post-docs may also be accepted. Previous Planetary Volcanology Workshop participants cannot be considered.
To apply, please send electronically to the address below: (1) a letter (not to exceed 1 page) stating the reasons why this workshop would benefit you in your current and/or future research – please be specific; (2) a current resume (1 page); (3) contact information including e-mail address, phone number, and mailing address; and (4) a letter of reference from your advisor or employer, also not to exceed 1 page, stating your capabilities, how these capabilities would be improved by attendance at this workshop (please be specific), and confirming that you are indeed currently funded by NASA to conduct planetary research.
Questions and applications should be sent to Sarah Fagents ([email protected], (808) 956 3163).
Application deadline is April 22, 2019.
Trip leaders: Scott Rowland, Pete Mouginis-Mark, and Sarah Fagents
