Mark Barker and Brittany Zajic with NASA DEVELOP will visit the University of Tromsø to discuss their involvement with the program and showcase a recent project modeling delta formation in Louisiana’s Wax Lake Delta. The NASA DEVELOP program is an internship opportunity for students, recent graduates and early transitioning career professionals who would like to get practical remote sensing experience in solving real world problems using NASA Earth Observing Systems.

DEVELOP conducts feasibility projects that utilize these NASA Earth observations in innovative and fresh applications that demonstrate to state and local governments how Earth observations can be implemented in their decision making processes to save resources such as money and time. Projects cover a variety of application areas including Agriculture, Climate, Disasters, Ecological Forecasting, Energy, Health and Air Quality, Oceans, Water Resources, and Weather. International students are eligible to apply to any of the programs eight regional locations.

All welcome!
