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."

Beginning 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.
