  3. Rick Chappell: Summary of Progess:
  4. Discussion on Storm Challenges
  5. additional participants welcome! you are welcome to add your contribution here or to email and

Shall we reboot our collaborative efforts on the Storm Challenges?

  • Storm 1: 2016 Mar 4-8 (DOY 64-68)
  • Storm 2: 2016 Oct 11-15 (285-289) <-- some work has been done on this event
  • Possibly: 2016 May 6-10 (127-131)
  • Possibly, new since last year: 2018 Aug 25-31
    • Especially including new and newly-restored data sets
    • Other specialized events/studies are welcome, especially those speaking to statistical states. It is important to study not only storm times, but also non-storm times in which the ionosphere is feeding the plasma sheet and building it up steadily prior to any reconnection or storm activity.

This will also be a focus for M3I2 GEM Mini-Workshop at 2019 Fall AGU.
