Invitation to join Whole Heliosphere and Planetary Interactions campaigns

December 14, 2018, from Mario M. Bisi

From Sarah Gibson (HAO/NCAR):

It’s solar minimum. In the tradition of Whole Sun Month (1996) and Whole Heliosphere Interval (2008), it’s time for Whole Heliosphere & Planetary Interactions (2019) – WHPI!

Goal? A coordinated observing and modeling effort to characterize the three-dimensional interconnected solar-heliospheric-planetary system. By focussing on specific solar rotations near solar minimum, structures and activity can be unambiguously traced throughout the heliosphere and into planetary space environments.

When? 3 target intervals:
Jul 2019 – Solar eclipse
Sep 2019 – Parker Solar Probe at perihelion
Dec 2019 – Parker Solar Probe Venus flyby

Who? Everyone is welcome – it’s a grassroots effort. Sign up – we will have telecons and workshops to coordinate analyses.
