SURF: Announcements of Opportunity

Below are Announcements of Opportunity posted by Caltech faculty and JPL technical staff for the SURF program. Additional AOs for the Amgen Scholars program can be found here.

Specific GROWTH projects being offerred for summer 2018 can be found here.

Each AO indicates whether or not it is open to non-Caltech students. If an AO is NOT open to non-Caltech students, please DO NOT contact the mentor.

Announcements of Opportunity are posted as they are received. Please check back regularly for new AO submissions! Remember: This is just one way that you can go about identifying a suitable project and/or mentor.

Announcements for external summer programs are listed here.

Students pursuing opportunities at JPL must be
U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents.

Project:  Improved time series analysis using space geodesy
Disciplines:  Earth Science, Geological/geophysical engineering
Mentor:  Zhen Liu, (JPL),, Phone: (818) 393-7506
Background:  Space geodetic measurements from Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) and Global Position System (GPS) provide capability to image surface deformation at various spatiotemporal scales. The growing observations and data volume also call for advances in techniques for rapid and reliable data processing, noise correction, time series analysis and modeling
Description:  The student will develop/improve state-of-the-art techniques for noise correction and transient detection using space geodetic measurement, and incorporate them in the analysis for geophysical applications.
Student Requirements:  Proficiency in python/matlab/C/C++/Linux. Backgrounds in math, computer science/engineering, and signal processing. Geophysics background is preferable.
Location / Safety:  Project building and/or room locations: . Student will need special safety training: No.
Programs:  This AO can be done under the following programs:
