ARLINGTON - Elizabeth J. Mitchell, a graduate student in physics at The
University of Texas at Arlington, has been awarded aNational
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Graduate Student Research
Proposal (GSRP) fellowship to study the "Solar wind variations
associated with geoeffectiveness of geomagnetic storms."
July 1, Mitchell will be working with Dr. Ramon E. Lopez at UT
Arlington and Dr. James Slavin at Goddard Space Flight Center in
Greenbelt, Maryland, to better classify the variations within the solar
wind that produce relatively large geomagnetic storms. The NASA GSRP
fellowship will provide Mitchell with funds to support her graduate
studies and research and to travel to two conferences to present her
results. She expects to complete this research and herdoctorate in
Physics in the next 12 to 18 months.
