NSURP, a new virtual research program for underserved minority students, was a bright spot in 2020 for Mya Breitbart, PhD. “This program really pushed me to realize what’s possible,” said Breitbart, who mentored a student who published his first scientific paper as a result of the program – as an undergrad.
Scientists discover new way to measure turbulence of planets & exoplanets
Results indicate that the rate of energy transfer in Jupiter's atmosphere is four times greater than that in Saturn’s, which is mind-boggling considering the total kinetic energy of Saturn is about 10 times that of Jupiter.
Congratulations, Brad Seibel, PhD, whose work on ocean deoxygenation is featured by the World Economic Forum!
Congratulations, Brian Barnes, PhD! His project using satellite and in situ data to understand long-term water quality trends in Biscayne Bay has been selected for funding by the EPA. This is Brian’s 11th project since 2016, and he’s served as principal investigator on five of these projects, which total about $2 million in funding.
Congrats, MSAC and CMS community! The CMS community donated $1,175 to MSAC’s virtual fundraiser in November to help feed families in need in Tampa Bay – far exceeding the original goal. Feeding Tampa Bay estimates this amount can provide weekend meals for 235 school children, or possibly feed five children for an entire year. Great job, MSAC! What an awesome and generous comunity; thanks to all for making it happen.
