A draft agenda is being prepared and will be distributed asap.
At the last meeting, in Michigan, it was agreed that March 8 and 9 would be devoted to science discussions and status reports and that March 10 would be devoted to splinter meetings. Please send proposed agenda items and ideas for the splinter meetings to Andrew Davis and Dick Mewaldt.
These will most likely be on Wednesday morning. Instrument status reports are not necessary unless there are important issues to discuss. We currently expect the following reports:
As in Michigan, we will arrange science presentations by topic. Please send topics that you wish to discuss to both of us so that we can arrange a draft agenda.
G. Gloeckler: Solar wind and pickup He+ ions during the "Whale of a CIR" event. Interstellar Helium temperature from the 1998 and 1999 focusing cones. Interception of Comet Hyakutake's 3.5 AU long ion tail with SWICS/Ulysses. T.H. Zurbuchen: Freeze-in signatures of expanding CMEs. Small scale structure of the slow solar wind. R. Skoug: Solar wind halo electron beam widths: an association between narrow strahls and CMEs. Radial variations of solar wind structure and electron signatures in a magnetic cloud observed at both 1 and 5 AU. E.C. Roelof: Coronal time histories of 40-300 keV electron beam impulsive injections: Evidence from EPAM events mounts in favor of acceleration by coronal shocks S.E. Hawkins: Compendium of EPAM 40-300 keV electron beam events identified with an anisotropy diagnostic parameter: An ACE resource from launch until the present D.K. Haggerty: A solar-terrestrial history of the 24 June 1998 CME/magnetic cloud/shock: From SOHO/LASCO images to MAG, SWEPAM, and EPAM signatures at ACE G.C. Ho: Statistical study of 3He/electron events from launch to January 2000: A ULEIS/EPAM/SIS collaboration. J. Giacalone: recent simulation results of impulsive flares. E. Moebius: CIRs (Joe Mazur's "Whale of a CIR" event). Source populations. Glenn Mason/Joe Dwyer: 22Ne/20Ne update; CIRs Mihir Desai: interplanetary shock events Joe Mazur: More SEP charge state comparisons: ACE & SAMPEX Christina Cohen: Shock Event Forecasting with SIS M.E. Weidenbeck: 3He in large SEP events and during quiet times. R.A. Mewaldt: Fip Fractionation in SEPs W.R. Webber: A Precision Comparison of leaky box model Calculations and ACE/HEAO Measurements of the Charge and Isotopic Composition of Cosmic Rays (also a possible splinter mtg. topic) E.R. Christian: ACR/GCR time variations W.R. Binns: Ne isotope measurements.
1) JHU/APL: Our group of attendees had already agreed with Christina Cohen to sit down sometime and go over progress on our joint ULEIS/EPAM/SIS project on 3He/electron events. This might be a splinter activity. 2) JHU/APL: Joe Mazur has sent us data for a single event (9-10 Jan 1999) containing "dropouts" in the low energy heavies (as seen in the swoosh plots). Friday might be a good time to sit down with him (and anyone else interested), although we haven't gone beyond a preliminary examination of this particular event. Consequently, you might not regard this as an "official" splinter activity unless it fits into another related splinter request (which we would be glad to join, in that case). 3) W.R. Webber: charge and isotopic composition of galactic cosmic rays and propagation predictions.
Parking is tight at Caltech. The meeting is in the 2nd floor lounge of
Winnett Center, which is building 51 on the
Caltech Map. Winnett center and likely parking spots are
noted on the map.
We recommend you park either in the California Blvd. parking lot (South of campus) or
in the new parking structure on Wilson Ave. (East of campus).
Park only in unmarked parking spaces, otherwise you're likely to get ticketed or towed.
It's less than 5 minutes walk from either lot to Winnett center.
