  • Plan moving forward --- THANKS for all of your contributions
    • Aim for GEM report, EOS, or GRL Frontiers article. Plan is to send outline to our mailing list and form writing team/schedule. Meet at mini-GEM, joint with aurora group or systems group. To volunteer send email to Liz.
  • 2015 GEM, the final mapping sessions
    • Talks are posted here:
    • We are having 3 final discussion-focused sessions at GEM; please join us and volunteer an update on your work or a brief perspective on the efforts of the last 5 years.
      • Tuesday at 10:30 we will begin with a Joint session: Testing Proposed Links between Mesoscale Auroral and Polar Cap Dynamics and Substorms & Scientific Magnetic Mapping & Techniques AKA “What is a streamer and how does it map?"
        • Speakers including Shin Ohtani, Emma Spanswick, Elizabeth Roy, Jiang Liu, and Chao Yue '3D Substorm Growth Phase Force-Balanced Plasma and Magnetic Field Modeling Application: A Substorm Event Study', Chu Xiangning "how does flux transport and pileup change mapping during substorms? " , and more
      • Thursday at 10:30 (Challenge work in progress, OCB work especially welcome)
        • Speakers including Peter Porazik 'Modification of the loss cone for energetic particles', Phil Valek "TWINS/RBSP comparison on Nov 14., 2012 storm, Kristie Llera 'Multiple charge changing interactions (MCCI) affects on precipitating particles', Liz MacDonald "OCB scenario Nov 14 2012", Alexa Halford "BARREL OCB observations," Eric Donovan, and more
      • Thursday at 1:30 (the final session, surveying progress and the path forward!)
        • Raluca Ilie "mapping isotropic boundaries to the tail"
        • Ideas to consider: EOS or review article, new focus group (and topics?), upcoming BARREL-SWEDEN campaign

If you would like to present something, please send a note to Liz, Eric, or Robyn. If you already sent one, it might not hurt to send it again—thanks! :)

2011 Mini-GEM Sunday Dec. 4, 2011 from 2:30 to 4:30 PM, in the Franciscan I room.

  • We would like to invite community participation in our session, by simply adding input to our survey forms on Mapping Science questions (http://bit.ly/vYuGc5) and Mapping Techniques (http://bit.ly/ucmMLQ). The survey results will be discussed at the mini-GEM and form the basis for planning of activities for the 2012 summer GEM Workshop. They will also be posted online (http://bit.ly/vPLlv9, http://bit.ly/uFw8Uz). We also welcome 1 slide presentations on specific questions or techniques if you wish. V. Papitashvili will give a brief intro to magnetic coordinate systems at the mini-GEM also.

We look forward to a productive discussion and thank you for your input in advance.
