Physics Professor wins NASA grant

Professor Dave Pawlowski was recently awarded a 3-year grant from NASA's Mars Data Analysis Program to investigate the effects of solar flares and dust storms on the Martian upper atmosphere.  The $340,000 award will provide insight into the time dependent behavior of the Mars ionosphere and thermosphere and aid future missions in mitigating the adverse effects of Martian space weather.
