Solar and Space Physics UNIToV

Gruppo di Fisica Solare e Spaziale Università di Roma Tor Vergata

Ground based and space instruments for researches in Solar-Terrestrial physics 6-10 June 2016 – International School of Space Science

Poster of the school

School activities will be held at Gran Sasso Science Institute in L’Aquila (http://www.gssi.infn.it).

BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
Francesco Berrilli
Stuart Jefferies
Carlo Scotto

The course is designed for PhD students and young post-doctoral researchers. The school will offer an interactive, hands-on approach to the computational and experimental techniques that will be applied in the next generation of ground- and space-based instruments for solar-terrestrial physics related research. In particular, a mix of experienced scientists and engineers will provide an integrated overview of the experimental techniques that are being applied in the observation and forecasting of Solar Activity, Space Weather, and the conditions in the Earth’s magnetosphere and ionosphere: all of which are important components of Space Situational Awareness (SSA).
