Session 3 Observational Platforms for Space Weather—Part II

Monday, 8 January 2018: 2:00 PM-4:00 PM
Salon J (Hilton) (Austin, Texas)
Host: 15th Conference on Space Weather
James F. Spann, NASA HQ, Washington, DC

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 are developing new techniques. The focus of these two sessions will be on the way these new observational capabilities support the space weather enterprise.
