(1) GNSS ionosphere job with Brazilian data at University of Nottingham, UK - applications due 10 October.


From Fabiano Rodrigues (Fabiano@utdallas.edu).

The post subject of this message is open for applications at the University of Nottingham website. Please pass this over to anyone who you think might be interested.

The successful candidate will join the Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) to work on the new and exciting CALIBRA (Countering GNSS high Accuracy applications Limitations due to Ionospheric disturbances in BRAzil) project, funded by the GSA (European GNSS Agency) through the 7th Framework Program, FP7. The project involves Brazilian and European partners, including the Belgian GNSS receiver manufacturer Septentrio Satellite Navigation. The selected candidate will develop algorithms to be applied to the highly precise GNSS carrier phase observables, which will be implemented in Septentrio’s GNSS receivers in order to counter these adverse ionospheric effects. The research will be based on experimental evidence and this will be possible due to the use of data collected in Brazil through project partner UNESP (Sao Paulo State University).

(2) Chapman Conference on Solar Minimum, 7-12 April 2013, Key Largo, Florida - abstracts and travel grant applications start 8 October and are due 8 January 2013.


From Stan Solomon (stans at ucar.edu).

The Chapman Conference on the Causes and Consequences of the Extended Solar Minimum between solar cycles 23 and 24 (4CESM) has been scheduled for 7-12 April, 2013, at the Hilton Key Largo Resort, Key Largo, Florida.

The recent solar minimum between solar cycles 23 and 24, during 2008-2009, was unusually long and complex, resulting in many observed effects indicating unusual conditions on the Sun, in the heliosphere, and in the magnetosphere, ionosphere, and upper atmosphere of the Earth. This remarkable set of conditions provides the scientific community with an exceptional opportunity to assess the nature and structure of a very quiet Sun and the effects throughout the heliosphere.

The goal of the conference is to bring together the solar, heliospheric, magnetospheric, ionospheric, and upper atmosphere communities to discuss interdisciplinary work, and to reach a better understanding of the nature and structure of the recent solar minimum. Scientists with interests in solar and heliospheric physics, solar interior, solar wind, space climate, space weather, magnetosphere, ionosphere, upper atmosphere, and climate, are encouraged to attend.

Key dates:

  • 8 October 2012: Abstract submission and travel grant application opens
  • 8 January 2013: Abstract submission and travel grant application closes
  • 13 March 2013: Registration and housing deadline
  • 7 April 2012: Conference begins
  • 12 April 2012: Conference ends
