Texas Partners Collaborating with NASA Langley
NASA's DISCOVER-AQ airborne campaign will be flying over the Houston area this September 2013, collecting data on air quality. In collaboration with this mission NASA Langley will be hosting a Train-the-Trainer for Texas GLOBE Partners. These Partners will in-turn, provide a local GLOBE workshop to teachers in Texas. The GLOBE Partnership at NASA Langley is looking to collaborate with GLOBE Partners in Texas to provide teacher training surrounding NASA's DISCOVER-AQ Mission. DISCOVER-AQ, a NASA Earth Venture program funded mission, stands for Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality. DISCOVER-AQ is taking a closer look at the air quality near the surface of the Earth, helping us better understand the ingredients that make up the air we breathe. The mission will be collecting data in Houston, Texas this September. Learn more about the campaign at http://discover-aq.larc.nasa.gov/. NASA's Langley Research Center would like to collaborate with local Partners to provide GLOBE teacher workshops and help inform the community about the upcoming airborne campaigns. If your Partnership is interested in this collaboration, please contact: Jessica Taylor, NASA Langley jessica.e.taylor@nasa.gov  >>
