First notice.The science teams of these three missions, in conjunction with
ground-based observers, will hold a virtual meeting on the dates shown
above. This is a follow up to a meeting that was held in 2016 prior to
launch. This is the first notice. The meeting will be 4 hours a day for 3
days. In part this meeting will provide context for the forthcoming gi
opportunity; step 1 proposals are due Feb 24 2021.
A description of the meeting is:
Workshop title: Geospace discovery science in a new decade (GDS workshop)
Virtual Workshop date: Feb 8-10, each day 2 separate sessions, each 2
Summary: Three new space missions, COSMIC-2, GOLD and ICON, provide
remarkable avenues for new investigations of the geospace system, in
collaboration with a growing network of ground-based observatories and
their associated research teams. With a broad slate of new capabilities,
the geospace research community is presented with unprecedented
opportunities for new research and a revitalized capacity for solving
significant outstanding problems in near-Earth space weather. The two NASA
missions, ICON and GOLD, observe the thermosphere and ionosphere using
optical and in-situ instruments. The international COSMIC-2 mission
comprises a constellation of six satellites that map the ionosphere using
GPS radio occultation, in-situ measurements, and beacon signals for space
to ground measurements. Enhanced ground-based observatories, cubesats, and
other satellite constellations, also provide essential new measurements.
Combining these tools to effectively address questions in ion-neutral
coupling and upper-atmosphere dynamics requires a comprehensive scientific
strategy for broad community participation. Therefore we are holding an
online workshop from the 8-10 February 2021. This workshop will discuss the
space-based missions, and complementary ground-based observations,
modeling, and data synthesis.
More details will be available later
All are welcome.
