2016 Earth Expeditions: ORACLES

09/01/2016
Southern Africa produces almost a third of the world’s vegetative burning, which sends smoke particles up into the atmosphere, where they eventually mix with stratocumulus clouds over the southeastern Atlantic Ocean. The Observations of Clouds above Aerosols and their Interactions (ORACLES) study is investigating how these particles impact the stratocumulus clouds, which play a key role in both regional and global surface temperatures and precipitation, in order to help improve current climate models.

Bland Wins 2014 James Kerley Award

04/04/2014
Congratulations to Geoff Bland for winning the James Kerley Award of the Innovative Partnerships Program Office (IPPO).

Geoff’s award is for transferring an "Aerodynamically Stabilized Instrument Platform" (AeroPod). This device is designed to provide a stable, lightweight structure to fly remote sensing and in-situ instrumentation from a kite or tethered blimp/balloon. Aeropods have been deployed to provide in-situ volcanic plume measurement experiments at Turrialba Costa Rica. They are in regular use at the Wayne County Regional Education Services Agency, putting this technology into the hands of over 2000 students and teachers to date.

The James Kerley award is an annual award given by the Technology Transfer Program to GSFC civil servants who has been instrumental in transfer technologies. The Kerley Award is named after James Kerley, longtime Goddard employee, inventor, and a champion of technology transfer. IPPO awards are not limited to engineering and technology, but also include scientific and visualization codes and software. Past winners from 610 included Geary Schwemmer (1998), Matt McGill (2000), and Norden Huang (2003).
