Session - Cross calibration of high energy particle measurements for heliospheric environment modelling

D. Heynderickx, P. Jiggens, J.V. Rodriguez

Measurements of SPE and GCR particle populations have been collected for many decades, both on ground, in the atmosphere and in space, with a variety of instrument types (Geiger counters, cloud chambers, photographic emulsions, particle telescopes, dome detectors, dosimeters, ...). Combining these different data collections into a homogeneous data resource is very challenging. Even data collected by spacecraft with similar instruments are notoriously difficult to cross calibrate into a common set of spectral energies and particle species. The need, both societal and scientific, to have accurate and consistent space weather observations from multiple platforms continues to drive cross-calibration efforts. Several efforts have been undertaken, or are ongoing, to re-process historical datasets in order to obtain absolute flux values from the various instruments that have flown (or are still flying) on spacecraft. These efforts are often hampered by a lack of detailed information on instrument characteristics and responses, and sometimes by the poor availability of the data itself. There has been a renewed interest in calibration issues as evidenced by the organisation of a calibration mini-workshop at this year's Space Weather Workshop in Boulder, Co, and the submission of an ISSI workshop proposal. ESWW11 provides an excellent opportunity to continue and increase international collaboration on this crucial aspect of environment modelling. We solicit contributions on recent calibration efforts and development of new methodologies. Contributions on standardisation of calibration methods and on archiving and dissemination of calibrated datasets are also welcome, as are successful models from the discipline of meteorological observations.
