NASA announced NASA’s DEVELOP Summer 2013 Internship Program for undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or Remote Sensing. This is a paid 10-week internship program located at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California that begins June 3, 2012 (for semester system) or June 17 (for quarter system).

Student teams research NASA science capabilities relevant to community concerns, create and complete projects using remote sensing and GIS techniques, and create advanced computer generated visualizations demonstrating research results. The activities are student-led, with mentors from NASA and partner organizations. Students of all majors are welcome to apply! Please see the attached flyer.

A stipend will be provided for selected students. Student housing options are also available on-site. Attached is a flyer to post in your department.

Call for Presentations USIALE 2013

The organizing committee of the 28th Annual Symposium of the U.S. Chapter of the International Association of Landscape Ecologists invites you to present your research in Austin, Texas this April 14-18, 2013. Our theme this year is “Landscape Dynamics Along Environmental Gradients.”
Presentation abstracts must be submitted by January 8, 2013. Notification of abstract acceptance will be given by February 1, 2013.

The meeting will attract educators and practitioners in the fields of ecology, biology, geography, geology, and landscape preservation and design dedicated to preserving and protecting our natural resources. Highlights will include workshops, plenary sessions, symposia, field trips, oral presentations and posters.

Austin and the Central Texas area are uniquely situated at the intersection of the Blackland Prairies, Cross Timbers and Edwards Plateau ecoregions. As such, the area is home to a large diversity of species and landscapes including iconic species such as the endangered golden-cheeked warbler and Barton Springs salamander. Mean daily low and high temperatures in April are 60F and 80F. Field trips will highlight unique environments of Central Texas including local research facilities, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and excursions into the Hill Country.
