New Research See the Sea Side of NASA’s Plankton-Climate Study Change

“NASA is future; NASA is coming. One in the air, one on the sea.” Think of it as a current, Paul Revere-like invite for 30 social media users to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts on Tuesday, May 10.
This NASA Social in-person event highlights the agency’s North Atlantic Aerosols  & Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) and tour the study vessel (R/V) Atlantis, operated by WHOI. The NAAMES study will collect information from aircraft and ship measurements, and combine that data with satellite and ocean sensor reading. Working in coordination with NASA’s C-130H Hercules airborne laboratory that will be flying not in of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Atlantis will supply detailed ship-based measurements of plankton in the North Atlantic.

NASA Social participants will have the chance to:
    Study about the NAAMES science mission – the airborne deployment of NASA’s C-130 in St. John’s Canada and WHOI’s Atlantis cruise to the North Atlantic.
    Get a behind-the-scenes tour of the main laboratory, on-ship science stations, and shipboard life on Atlantis.
    Have one-on-one interactions with NAAMES scientists and the crew of the Atlantis.
    Hear concerning the logistical challenges of conducting a science mission from space, in the air and on the ocean; and how NASA is creation the ocean-atmosphere-climate connection with NAAMES as a path to space.
NASA Social media accreditation for NAAMES at WHOI is now open on this page. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. EDT on Thursday, April 28, 2016. All social media accreditation-applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
