GESTAR II Researchers participate in Annual SED Poster Party

On Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the Annual Sciences and Exploration Directorate (SED) New Year's Poster Party was held onsite in the Building 28 atrium. Scientists from across the division plus Engineering shared their posters from previous and upcoming conferences (e.g., AGU and AMS) and discussed their research with attendees. Prizes were awarded in the following categories: Best Poster Title, Best Graphic Design, Best Science Story, and the Piers Sellers Interdisciplinary Award, as well as the ever-popular Science as Food competition.
