Session 12 - Space Weather Instrumentation

Jackie Davies (RAL UKRI STFC); Keith Ryden (Univ. of Surrey)
Thursday 21/11, 11:15-12:30 & 17:15-18:30
Friday 22/11, 11:15-12:30

Space weather research, forecasting and operations rely on measurements and observations generated by specialized sensors and instrumentation. The purpose of this session is to provide a forum dedicated to Space Weather Instrumentation questions and concepts.

Topics to be covered include:
• 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 etc);
• Space-based remote-sensing instruments (EUV imagers, coronagraphs, etc); All contributions related to these topics are welcome.
