Abstract
Following the conclusion of the 2014 Space Weather Week in Boulder, Colorado, the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center and Space Weather Prediction Center cohosted a 1 day workshop on the intercalibration of solar energetic particle (SEP) measurements. The overall purpose of this workshop was to discuss the intercalibration of SEP measurements from different instruments and different spacecraft, to foster new cooperative intercalibration efforts, and to identify a path forward for establishing a set of intercalibration guidelines. The detailed objectives of this workshop were described by Rodriguez and Onsager [2014]. Ten talks were given at the workshop (available at ftp://ftp.ngdc.noaa.gov/STP/publications/spe_intercal/), interspersed with extensive discussions. One outcome of these discussions is a recommendation that a set of guidelines be drafted for the on-orbit cross comparison of solar energetic particle measurements, similar to the first optical calibration guidelines developed for the Global Space-based Inter-Calibration System (GSICS) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites [Datla et al., 2009].
