Session 5 Observational Platforms for Space Weather, Part II

Tuesday, 24 January 2017: 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
4C-2 (Washington State Convention Center )
Host: 14th Conference on Space Weather
Michael Wiltberger, NCAR, HAO, Boulder, CO

These session featuring talks on recent new platforms for space weather observations as well critical existing facilities. This session will look at some of the many new facilities that are coming into existence as well as being proposed. Existing facilities are being upgraded or developing new techniques. The focus of these two sessions will be on the way these new observational capabilities support the space weather enterprise. The emphasis will be on “the way” rather than just the observations, bringing into consideration data-assimilation, discovery missions, monitoring programs, and discussions of data/model coverage sufficient to allow predictions.
