We solicit your abstracts for session A09 - Scientific results from the
Swarm constellation mission (DIV I - DIV VI) during the next
IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA Joint Assembly from Aug 27 to Sep 1, 2017 in Cape Town,
South Africa. The session description is provided below and at
The deadline for abstract submission is March 12, 2017.
Looking forward seeing you in Cape Town.
With kind regards,

*A09: Scientific results from the Swarm constellation mission
*Convenors:* Patrick Alken*, *Ciarán Beggan, Claudia Stolle
Swarm, a constellation mission comprising three identical satellites,
was launched in November 2013. It has been used to survey the
geomagnetic field and its temporal evolution to an unprecedented level
of accuracy, and to investigate the interaction of the geomagnetic and
electric fields with the Earth system and near-Earth space.
The three Swarm satellites make high-resolution measurements of the
strength, direction and variation of the magnetic field, complemented by
precise navigation, accelerometer, plasma and electric field
measurements. Its constellation configuration has enabled observations
of the gradients within the geomagnetic field, ionospheric and
thermospheric parameters, and the gravitational field. Since 2013 the
two lower satellites flying side-by-side with an initial altitude of 460
km have decreased in orbital height. The third satellite, at a higher
altitude, has separated from the lower two in local time by few hours.
This session solicits contributions about recent scientific results from
the mission in terms of data analysis and Earth science applications
with a focus on the exploitation of the gradient information and
diverging local time measurements achieved by the Swarm mission. General
contributions on results using Swarm data, in combination with other
satellite missions or ground observations are also very welcome.
