Thursday February 16, 2012

 

8:30 Low hanging fruit (LHF) high-level (from 10,000 feet) information provided by each team:

What is the big science question?
What kind of RBSP collaboration is needed to address it?
What kind of data products (yours and others) are needed to address it?
What other assets are needed to address it?

10:15 LHF science topic #1

What issues can we resolve about strong and weak whistler mode interactions and their roles in electron energization and loss in the first 3 month?

1:45 RBSP-Coordinated Rocket Experiment for Weak Turbulence in Radiation Belts, Guru Ganguli
2:15 LHF science Topic #2

What issues can we resolve about larger-scale dynamics and structure with just the first 1 or 2 major geomagnetic storms? (Resolve with unique 2-spacecraft measurements and such increased capabilities as composition)
