RBSP Science Working Group Meeting at APL
Thursday February 16, 2012
Low hanging fruit (LHF) high-level (from 10,000 feet) information provided by each team:
What is the big science question?
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?
|1:15||Brief planning session for a Data / tool sharing workshop in May (Barnes, etc.)|
|1:45||RBSP-Coordinated Rocket Experiment for Weak Turbulence in Radiation Belts, Guru Ganguli|
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)
|4:30||Brief planning session for the community outreach meeting in June, Fox and O'Brien|
Friday February 17, 2012
|8:30||Brief presentation on the status of the Science Gateway with emphasis on discussions leading to feedback from the SWG, Weiss|
|9:00||Brief reports on Working Group plans and activities|
LHF science topic #3
What issues can we resolve about the source, structure and dynamics of the inner (L < 2) ion and electron belts within the first 3 months.
|11:45||Status of AP9/AE9 models, O'Brien|
