  • Mars Atmosphere Data Assimilation: Lessons Learned, Current Challenges, and Future Opportunities

    This workshop, hosted by SSI's Dr. Luca Montabone and sponsored by Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES) through the Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique (LMD, Paris, France) and SSI, will be held at the Savoie-Technolac Science. Abstracts due Jun. 1, 2018.

  • The Plasmasphere and Warm Plasma Cloak

    SSI's Center for Space Plasma Physics (Joe Borovsky, Mick Denton) invites you to attend a workshop at Fuller Lodge, Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA to discussion such topics as: What do we know about the origin and evolution of the warm plasma cloak? Plasmaspheric refilling rates: are they right or wrong? If wrong, why? Is there radial transport of the plasmasphere by interchange? Is oxygen-rich cloak plasma captured into the refilling outer plasmasphere? Where does the long-lived plume come from: ionospheric outflow or drainage from the magnetosphere? Where does the plume plasma go? LLBL versus over the poles? Is it recycled? What outflow mechanisms act for the plasmasphere and for the cloak? Is the plasmasphere symmetric with respect to Earth longitude? If not, why? Does a filled plasmasphere precondition the magnetosphere for a storm? Does the outer plasmasphere corotate?
