Goals l.jpg
Goals

  • Carry out the Message (and Connect)Heliospheric Science contributes to wider community (Astronomy {Origins} & Solar System exploration)Heliospheric Science is about Exploration (general public)

  • Understand Our Home System from the Sun to its Boundary with the Interstellar Medium

  • Maintain Existing Assets in SpaceOur Great Observatory: Heliospheric Fleet

  • Improve & Consolidate Global Heliospheric Models Current: plasma+neutrals; plasma+magnetic field

  • Need: all combined

Questions l.jpg
Questions

  • - Provide a consistent view of the 3D heliosphere (modeling from corona to ISM) (3Di, o)

  • What is the SW structure as a function of latitude and distance? (Voyager at higher latitude and distance; function of cycle; difference A+ and A-) (3Di, o, SWI) - What is the 3D structure of the magnetic field in the quiet heliosphere? (3Di, o)

  • - What are the heliospheric signatures of the global magnetic field reversal in each 11-year cycle? (3Di, o)

  • How does the interstellar gas in the inner heliosphere change with the solar cycle? (3Do, i)

  • - How do the photospheric, coronal, and interplanetary magnetic fields relate to each other? (3Di, o)

Small widely distributed observatories l.jpg
Small widely distributed Observatories

  • 1) Neutron Monitors (make use of all around the world, fill gaps; stability of neutron monitors) (John B.; Cliff L.?)

  • 2) µ-monitors 30 GeV; $100k (John B.)

  • 3) Low Frequency Radio Observatories (also EPO) (Justin K.)

  • 4) InterPlanetary Scintillation (IPS)

  • 5) Use of ground observatories for ISM absorption (E.M. ask Rosine Lallement)1, 2, 3, 4): encourage other countries to invest in order to get into front line research; assistance with blueprints and funds for workshops etc. possible3): PI projects with placing units in other countries
