  • Fourth Announcement *
  • Workshop on C/NOFS Results and Equatorial Dynamics

May 18-20, 2010

The C/NOFS Science Workshop will be held May 18 - 20, 2010 at the Beaver Run Conference Center in Breckenridge, Colorado. Primary objective of this meeting is to address questions related to the dynamics of the equatorial ionosphere, how it is driven from above by the solar wind and from below by the troposphere and mesosphere. This unusually quiet solar minimum has provided a unique opportunity to study the equatorial ionosphere. Results from the C/NOFS satellite, as well as other ground and space instruments such as RAIDS, will be presented.
