Registration is now open for the Real-time/Assimilative IRI Workshop to be held at the US Air Force Academy on 4-6 May, 2009. Registration is available at http://www.ionospheres.org/rtiri2009. Please note there will be no onsite registration without prior coordination with USAFA.

Over 20 talks will cover a variety of topics which are targeted to support the effort to enable a real-time capability for IRI using assimilative techniques. The talks cover complementary themes of data sources and algorithms for data ingestion. Workshop leaders are also offering a tutorial session for the cadets and workshop attendees. The social program includes a USAFA observatory tour, lunch with the cadet wing, and dinner at Flying W ranch. A complete workshop program is available at http://www.ionospheres.org/rtiri2009.

GEM 2008/2009 Modeling Challenge on ground magnetic perturbations and the inner magnetosphere in preparation for the GEM 2009 Summer Workshop.

GGCM Metrics and Validation Focus Group is organizing modeling Challenge focusing on the inner magnetospheric dynamics and ground magnetic field perturbations. The goal of the Challenge is to evaluate the current state of the space physics modeling capability and to address the differences between various modeling approaches. Community Coordinating Modeling Center (CCMC) is supporting the Challenge.

Lists of events and physical parameters for the metrics studies were selected at the GEM 2008 Workshop at Zermatt.

Model output can be submitted to CCMC via Challenge Web site located at http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov support/GEM_metrics_08/. CCMC will perform model/data comparisons for all submissions.

Initial results based on early submissions were discussed at the GEM mini-workshop at the 2008 Fall AGU. Preliminary reports on analyses of geosynchronous parameters and ground magnetic field perturbations are available at the Challenge website (see address above).

The Challenge results will be presented and discussed at the GEM 2009 Summer Workshop in Snowmass (http://www.cpe.vt.edu/gem/index.html). Joint publication by all participants and/or a series of back-to-back publications on the Challenge results are planned. Possible joint publications and future plans will be discussed at the GGCM Metrics and Validation Session at the GEM 2009 Workshop.

To participate in the Challenge please submit your model results using the web interface prior to May 15, 2009.

(3) Possible CEDAR Grand Ionosphere Modeling Challenge by CCMC?


From Masha Kuznetsova (Maria.M.Kuznetsova@nasa.gov).

If anyone is interested in a CEDAR Grand Ionosphere Modeling Challenge that will help to to evaluate the current state of the space physics modeling capability and to address the differences between various modeling approaches, please contact Masha Kuznetsova (Maria.M.Kuznetsova@nasa.gov). CCMC can support this activity using our experience with GEM community and available interface.
