Poster Blowout 2018

Note from the Director:
I would like to thank the Director’s Science Committee for putting on an amazingly successful event where scientists and engineers across Goddard shared their work and made new contacts. The interdisciplinary interactions were especially exciting and crossed all four science disciplines.

The Geospace Physics Laboratory focuses on processes occurring in the magnetospheres of magnetized planets and on the interaction of the solar wind with planetary magnetospheres. Researchers also study processes, such as magnetofluid turbulence, that permeate the heliosphere from the solar atmosphere to the edge of the solar system.

Laboratory researchers conceive and develop missions to observe plasma phenomena throughout geospace, other planetary magnetospheres, and the heliosphere. The Laboratory develops improved instrumentation and theoretical models to investigate plasma processes. It establishes partnerships throughout the international science community, providing data access, analysis tools, and user support.
