Session 9 - Enhanced Space Weather Monitoring Systems

Stefan Kraft (ESOC/ESA)
Thursday 17/11, 10:00-13:00

Monitoring of the environment and the interaction of the Sun with the Earth has been explored and demonstrated well by former missions like SOHO, ACE, STEREO etc. ESA has investigated suitable architectures for Enhanced Space Weather Monitoring systems and recently initiated studies to further define the necessary satellite systems being positioned in suitable Lagrange points. The aim is to further prepare the feasibility demonstration of space weather monitoring and forecasting making significant use of European capabilities, that might possibly be optimised by collaborations with international partners. A system based on simultaneous observations from both L1 and L5 paired with sensors in Earth proximity would provide a suitable observation system capturing essential space weather conditions and related parameters in a holistic manner. This should allow to increase the lead times of early warnings and subsequent mitigation of hazardous effects that are potentially harmful for space and ground based infrastructures of our society. It is essential to present and discuss the current status and to consolidate the views with the space weather community glimpsing also at the involved scientific aspects. Therefore, for this session we encourage submission of contributions that would further a better understanding and advance the definition of future observing systems either with respect to the necessary instrumentation or satellite systems, or potentially enhanced observational methods that are expected to improve the performance of the such a monitoring system from space. This may include the consideration of suitable complementing remote sensing systems from ground.
