Topical Discussion Meeting - Steps to improve user access to space weather observation data

Juha-Pekka Luntam (ESA), Tsutomu Nagatsuma (NICT), Elsayed Talaat (NOAA), Andrew Monham (EUMETSAT)
Wed, 11:30-12:45, Earth

This TDM continues the highly successful discussion meetings in ESWW 2019 and 2021 to provide the data users information about the planned, new space weather missions and to collect the user feedback on how the user access to the data can be ensured and enhanced. The objectives of the TDM are closely linked to the objectives of the new User Access Task Group proposed in the CGMS-50 meeting held in Geneva in June 2022. The TDM offers a discussion forum between the users of the space weather measurement data, space weather service providers, industry and service end users, and provides the agencies implementing the future space weather missions critical information for ensuring that the observation data can be effectively and efficiently utilized in operational applications and scientific research. The topics that will be discussed in the TDM include, but are not limited to:
    Standardisation of space weather data and products including metadata
        Data availability and latency
    Standardised data delivery mechanisms
        Readiness of the users to utilise data from coming missions (new GEO missions, SWFO, Vigil, hosted payloads, smallsats and nanosatellites)
        Ensured access to ground-based observation data.
