Welcome to the ESA Space Weather Web Server

The ESA Space Weather Web Server is an initiative of the ESA Space Environments  and Effects Analysis Section at ESTEC.  One of the main aims of this Server is to stimulate and connect the European  Space Weather community, while also including world-wide efforts that have already  been initiated in this field. The Server is inspired by the "ESA Workshop on Space  Weather", that was held at ESTEC, Noordwijk, NL from the 11 to 13 Nov. 1998.  We hope that you will find it useful.

Please note that this web server is under construction and we are welcome to   comments and suggestions that you may have concerning this Web Server, especially  links that you would like to have included. Please send all correspondence  regarding this web server to (ncrosby@wm.estec.esa.nl).

Second Meeting Announcement: Space Weather: Research to Operations III
(April 21-23, 1999) during Space Weather Week

Note:  Registration will be limited to approximately 200 participants, and facilities are available for approximately 50 poster presentations.  Meeting information, including registration and abstract submission forms, is available at the following Web location:
http://sec.noaa.gov/~swc/sww99/index.html

The third annual Research to Operations meeting will be held in Boulder, CO on April 21-23, 1999, in conjunction with the NOAA Space Environment Center Users Conference on April 19-21.   Research and operations topics will be addressed that span the full solar-terrestrial environment, from the sun to the upper atmosphere.  Among the topics that will be addressed are:  recent research advances, data assimilation, community modeling activities, future data sources, rapid prototyping centers, and the status of space weather operations centers.  For the first time, the Research to Operations meeting will be combined with the SEC Space Weather Users Conference, allowing space environment researchers to interact with users of space weather services. 

Meeting Organizers:
Terry Onsager - NOAA Space Environment Center - tonsager@sec.noaa.gov
Greg Ginet - Air Force Research Laboratory - ginet@plh.af.mil

It is aimed at the ISTP, GGS, INTERBALL, EQUATOR-S and Cluster communities which are faced with large amounts of data from a number of missions, instruments and sources, which need to be put together for common scientific analysis. 

PAPCO 09 has been released in the interim and is available at
http://leadbelly.lanl.gov/ccr/software/papco/papco_source/

Module authors: Please download the latest version and test you module under it before the workshop!
