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
MTC 00.10, Large lecture room

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.
