Topical Issue “Space Weather Instrumentation”, deadline 31 May 2020

April 27, 2020, from Natasha Jeffrey

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (JSWSC) opens a Topical Issue on “Space Weather Instrumentation” to appear in 2020/2021.

Space weather research, forecasting and operations rely on measurements and observations generated by specialized sensors and instrumentation. The purpose of this Topical Issue is to provide a forum dedicated to Space Weather Instrumentation questions and concepts. Topics to be covered include the following:

Emerging requirements for Space Weather Instrumentation, data and resources;
Ground-based Space Weather Instruments and networks (including magnetometers, VLF receivers, riometers, ionosondes and neutron monitors);
Balloon and aircraft-based Space Weather Instruments;
Space-based in-situ sensors measuring cause (particles and fields) and effect (internal / surface charging, solar cell degradation etc);
Space-based remote-sensing instruments (EUV imagers, coronagraphs, etc);
This Topical Issue arises from the 16th European Space Weather Week held in Liège, Belgium, in November 2019, primarily from the Session 12 entitled “Space Weather Instrumentation”. However, it is not restricted to papers presented during this session. All contributions related to these topics are welcome.

Manuscripts must be submitted via the JSWSC online submission tool. Guidelines for submission of papers are found on the JSWSC web site under the tab “Instruction for Authors”

Deadline: 31 May 2020.

All manuscripts will be peer reviewed according to the quality standards of international scientific journals. The type of contributions must fit the aims and scope of JSWSC. All manuscripts should contain enough new insight, present the results against a properly referenced background of existing work, and present adequate evidence that supports the conclusions.

Manuscripts about new instrumental developments and/or observational procedures are very suitable for publication under the category of technical papers. We encourage and expect that such papers will use measurable physical quantities to demonstrate expected performance or to validate actual performances of these new developments or procedures.

Accepted papers are published in electronic format only, and are freely available to everyone via the JSWSC website. JSWSC offers the possibility to publish supplementary material, such as animations, movies, codes and data.
