SM002:
Assessment of Space Environment Models and Data: Validation Metrics, Frameworks, and Applications

Panel Format Session: This session has been selected by the Program Committee to be an official panel. Panelists will be invited authors designated by the conveners. Learn more



Session ID#: 24743

Session Description:
The assessment of both scientific understanding and its application to societal needs can drive progress through providing direction, and constructive feedback into the research efforts of a field. The tools needed to assess and track this progress include metrics, validation techniques, and framework designs. Advances in computation and instrumentation, and the resulting large data sets, provide new potential for system-wide assessment. However, they also provide a challenge for the relevant frameworks. Many of the needed tools can be cross-disciplinary in their applicability, and the space physics research community can learn from, and share with the Earth and atmospheric science communities, who likewise share the goals of both scientific understanding, and applications beneficial to society. The goal of this session is to bring these research communities together to discuss current efforts, successful approaches, and lessons learned in building and applying tools for validation, metrics, and applications to societal needs.
