Fifteenth European Space Weather Week
November 5 - 9, 2018, Leuven, Belgium

Session 11 - Space Weather Instrumentation

Sylvie Benck (Universite Catholique de Louvain), Mervyn Freeman (British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge), Grigory Protopopov (URSC-ISDE, Moscow), Volker Bothmer (Institut für Astrophysik, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)
Friday 9/11, 09:00-10:30 & 11:15-12:45


Space weather science, research and forecasting operations rely on data and observations generated by specialized sensors and instrumentation. The purpose of this session is to provide a forum dedicated to Space Weather Instrumentation issues and concepts. Topics to be covered include:

  • Emerging requirements and needs for Space Weather Instrumentation and data;
  • Ground based Space Weather Instruments ;
  • Space based in-situ sensors measuring cause (particles and fields) and effect (internal charging, surface charging, solar cell degradation etc);
  • Space based remote sensing instruments (coronagraphs etc);
  • Novel use cases for heritage Space Weather Instruments, allowing re-use of existing assets.
