We welcome the CEDAR community to participate in the CEDAR Broader Impacts workshop to be held on Friday, June 29th from 10 AM - 12 PM.  We have room for additional short presentations and are also planning time for discussion about broader impacts of CEDAR science, including overlap with other disciplines.  A description of the workshop is below.  Please let us know if you would like to give a short presentation and/or if you have a topic or question you would like us to discuss during the session.

Thank you,
Best wishes,
Susan Nossal (nossal at physics.wisc.edu<mailto:nossal at physics.wisc.edu>), Katrina Bossert (k.bossert at gats-inc.com<mailto:k.bossert at gats-inc.com>), and Nittin Sivadas (nithin at bu.edu<mailto:nithin at bu.edu>)

CEDAR Broader Impacts

The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR) program includes research which has far reaching impacts and benefits to the greater society. This workshop revisits the CEDAR strategic plan with an emphasis on new research, and associated descriptions of the impacts of research which overlap with the broader research community outside of CEDAR. This workshop will build on the following CEDAR strategic thrusts:   Strategic Thrust #1:Encourage and Undertake a Systems Perspective to Geospace Strategic Thrust #2: Explore Exchange Processes at Boundaries and Transitions Strategic Thrust #3: Explore Processes Related to Geospace Evolution Strategic Thrust #5: Fuse the Knowledge Base across Disciplines
This workshop seeks to bring together different sub-disciplines of CEDAR to raise community awareness and discussion about farther reaching effects of the research within CEDAR, and the overlap with broader science goals within geoscience and other disciplines. Topics of discussion and research presentation will include space weather influences on satellites, anthropogenic climate change, natural hazards detection, terrestrial weather influences on the I-T/M-L-T, and ways that the CEDAR community can contribute to a whole atmosphere understanding of processes. Other discussion and topics are welcome. We encourage presenters to include within their presentation at least one slide discussing the broader influences of research in “layperson’s terms,” while presentations themselves can be targeted specifically to the CEDAR community.  There will also be time for informal discussion.
