Bolch wins NASA ESS Fellowship

September 1, 2007

CEE graduate student Michael Adam Bolch was awarded a NASA Earth System Science (ESS) fellowship. The fellowship is worth $24,000 annually and may be renewed for an additional two years. His research is entitled, "Evaluating the Effects of Land-Surface Heterogeneity at Various Scales on Atmospheric Boundary Layer Processes." The purpose of the space agency’s program is to ensure continued training of interdisciplinary scientists to support the study of the Earth as a system. NASA says it places particular emphasis on the applicant's ability and interest in pursuing academic training and research using observations and measurements from NASA's Earth orbiting satellites, and in developing inter- or cross-disciplinary research.
