The Nationwide Eclipse Ballooning Project (NEBP) is a unique NASA and NSF-supported field campaign fostering student STEM engagement during two solar eclipses while collecting valuable scientific data. The objectives of the project are to identify and characterize stratospheric gravity waves, characterize the rapidly evolving properties of the planetary boundary layer, and quantify the variable environmental lapse rates. Eighteen SUNY Oswego students are actively participating in the field campaign by launching specially designed weather balloons that travel from the surface to the upper limits of the stratosphere collecting extremely rare information about the atmosphere during the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. 

 

Balloon launches will kick-off at 8 am and will continue every hour until 4 pm.
