Topical Issue "Space Weather Instrumentation" for JSWSC

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (JSWSC) has opened a new Topical Issue on "Space Weather Instrumentation" to appear in 2020/2021.

Space weather research, forecasting and operations rely on measurements and observations generated by specialized sensors and instrumentation. The purpose of this Topical Issue is to provide a forum dedicated to Space Weather Instrumentation questions and concepts. Topics to be covered include the following:

  • Emerging requirements for Space Weather Instrumentation, data and resources;
  • Ground-based Space Weather Instruments and networks (including magnetometers, VLF receivers, riometers, ionosondes and neutron monitors);
  • Balloon and aircraft-based Space Weather Instruments;
  • Space-based in-situ sensors measuring cause (particles and fields) and effect (internal / surface charging, solar cell degradation,...);
  • Space-based remote-sensing instruments (EUV imagers, coronagraphs,...).

This Topical Issue arises from the 16th European Space Weather Week (ESWW16) held in Liège, Belgium, in November 2019, primarily from the Session 12 entitled "Space Weather Instrumentation". However, it is not restricted to papers presented during this session. All contributions related to these topics are welcome.

Questions regarding this topical issue are to be addressed to the topical editor-in-chief Richard A. Harrison (RAL Space, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK). For questions concerning the submission process, please contact the Editorial Office. Manuscripts must be submitted via the JSWSC online submission tool before the 31 May 2020 deadline. Guidelines for submission of papers are found on the JSWSC web site under the tab "Instructions for Authors". If you need additional time to complete your submission, please do not hesitate to contact the JSWSC Editorial Office.
