Students and researchers from Millersville University, Penn State University and NASA are collaborating at Smith Point, one of the DISCOVER-AQ ground stations near Houston, Texas.The DISCOVER-AQ mission is a coordinated series of field campaigns over five years with the goal of improving the ability of satellites to consistently observe air quality in the lowest part of the atmosphere, where people live and breathe. 

The DISCOVER-AQ Texas 2013 mission is taking place in the Houston region throughout the month of September and involves two aircraft as well as seven ground sites, all making simultaneous measurements of air quality and atmospheric conditions.

Shown here is a colloborative effort among undergraduate students, graduate students and research scientists from Millersville University, Penn State University and NASA Goddard to install the Measurement of Ozone Production Sensor (MOPS) on top the NATIVE mobile research station. From left to right are Joy, an undergraduate student from Millersville University; Hannah Halliday and Bianca Baier, graduate students from Penn State University; and Deborah Stein-Zweers, a NASA Goddard visiting scientist.
