Recent cuts in research funding present significant challenges for scientists in a number of areas of study. We are convening Session SA-016 at the upcoming 2013 Fall AGU Meeting to provide a forum for discussion of creative ways to advance our knowledge and technological capabilities despite the current budget constraints. We encourage you to contribute an abstract describing your new and exciting ideas before the abstract deadline of 6 August 2013.
SPA-Aeronomy SA016 Science on a Shoestring: New Frontiers in Space Weather Observations
CONVENERS: L. C. Gentile, C. Y. Huang, Air Force Research Laboratory, Kirtland AFB, NM;
A. Barjatya, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, FL, C. Swenson, Utah State University, Logan, UT
The recent unusual solar minimum and current 'mini-max' demonstrate the ongoing challenge to advance our understanding of Earth's space environment. While observational requirements aim for higher spatial/temporal resolution and simultaneous multi-point measurements, budgets are severely constrained. How do we do more with less? What key parameters do we need to measure for which we do not yet have well-proven techniques or platforms? Can we leverage older techniques and datasets in new ways? We solicit innovative science and technology approaches to advance topics such as mesosphere dynamics, MIT coupling, high latitude and equatorial physics. We encourage creative solutions including new theoretical approaches, instrument ideas and results, low-cost missions and reusable launch vehicles.
If you have any questions, please contact the conveners. Thank you.
Cheryl, Aroh, Charles, and Louise
