SA43C:
Exploring Geospace: Novel Instruments and New Opportunities I


Session ID#: 11155

Session Description:
The geospace environment extends from the stratopause upwards into the plasmasphere. Significant challenges exist as well as  new opportunities; satellite rideshares, small satellites,commercial suborbital, UAS/UAV platforms, balloons, and the ready availability of new COTS technologies and high-speed microprocessors have opened up new approaches for groundbased instrumentation and networks of sensors. We solicit talks with a focus on the exploration of geospace using new techniques, new instruments, and/or new approaches. We include and welcome advances in groundbased measurement techniques especially with an eye toward how those sensors can be proliferated and/or networked. We recognize that models are an important part of the process of exploration and welcome talks that address what models tell us about the need for sampling and parameters that must be measured in order to aid in the development of our understanding; Observing System Simulation Experiments can be used to supply a technology pull for the community.
