Earth Expeditions: Waiting for Good Snow

01.22.2020
When your field campaign depends on chasing winter storms you have to wait for the weather to arrive in its own time.

Overview

The Field Support Office supports the Earth science research activities of Code 600 scientists at the Wallops Flight Facility (WFF). The Office also conceives, builds, tests, and operates research sensors and instruments, both at Wallops and at remote sites.

Scientists in the Office use aircraft, balloons, and satellite platforms to participate in the full complement of Earth science research activities, including measurements, retrievals, data analysis, model simulations, and calibration/validation. Office personnel collaborate with other scientists and engineers at Goddard Space Flight Center, other NASA centers, and at universities and other government agencies, both nationally and internationally.

For further information, data, research, and other resources, see Wallops Science Field Office Research.
