Purpose of the workshop

The workshop is being held to discuss and gather community input on science requirements, capabilities and instrumentation for ground-based solar observing instruments in the framework of space-weather studies and applications. This can be either for the intrinsic interest of the physical quantities measured or for their interest in conjunction with space missions or models and this can be either with (near) real time data or through the development and maintenance of long synoptic programs able to produce the needed statistic on various events relevant for space-weather.  


Because of limited space, participants number will be restricted to 50.

Registration is open until Sept. 16, 2016, or until all slots are filled.

Registration can be performed from the main menu on the left-hand side.

There are no registration fees, lunches and coffee-breaks are offered.

Description of the different sessions

Session A. Existing Ground-based solar observations for space-weather and long term synoptic programs

        • Full disk chromospheric observations, Ha, Ca II H et K, G Band,...

        • Solar corona and coronographic observations

        • Radio wave, Radioheliograph

        • Solar Energetic Particules, Neutron monitors

        • Vector magnetic field / near real time magnetograms or synoptic maps (Themis, NSO / SOLIS,...)

        • Helioseismology, far side imaging (GONG)

Session B. New ground-based projects for space weather and synoptic programs

        • What are the needs ? For scientists and basic research, for supplementing future space missions (Solar Orbiter,...), for military, for civil aviation...
        • The big solar telescopes (EST, ATST/DKIST,...) and space weather ?

        • What are the space-weather related solar observing projects or synoptic networks under development ? (SOLARNET / SPRING,...)

Session C. Ground and space synergies for space-weather

        • Which ground-based observations couple best with space-based observations and models for Space Weather application needs ?
        • What scientific objectives linked to space weather will best benefit from synergies between ground and space-based solar observations.

        • What are the main results on using SOHO, STEREO, SDO data together with ground-based observations of the Sun ?


Session D. Discussions on the coordination of French facilities (ANO ?)
