1. Satellite Anomaly Analysis and Prediction System (SAAPS)
*********************************************************

From: Peter Wintoft          Email: peter@irfl.lu.se

Since April this year, the Swedish Institute of Space Physics has been developing the Satellite Anomaly Analysis and Prediction System (SAAPS).  The project is ESA funded and monitored by ESA's Space Environments and Effects Analysis Section.

The project is described at http://www.lund.irf.se/saaps and at the beginning of next year we intend to make some of the tools available on the web.

Anyone interested in SAAPS can contact me at peter@irfl.lu.se .

"Space Weather" Symposium at the European Geophysical Society 2000 meeting

Symposium ST19 of next year's EGS meeting (Nice, France, 25-29 April 2000) will be dedicated to discussion of the scientific issues associated with Space Weather. This symposium will be divided into several subsections that address in turn: i) the solar origins of the phenomenon that cause interplanetary disturbances and which drive Space Weather (the Space Weather engine), ii) the propagation of those disturbances through the heliosphere and their coupling to the magnetosphere, iii) the various Space Weather induced disturbances which arise in the magnetosphere, the ionosphere and the neutral atmosphere. Oral and poster papers on observations, data analysis and modelling in all these areas are very welcome.

Names and addresses of Conveners: Dr Mike Hapgood, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK. Email: M.Hapgood@rl.ac.uk, Dr Norma Crosby, International Space University, Strasbourg, France, Email: crosby@isu.isunet.edu Dr Volker Bothmer, Universitšt Kiel, Germany, Email: bothmer@kernphysik.uni-kiel.de; Dr Jan Lastovicka, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Prague, Czech Republic, Email: jla@ufa.cas.cz.

For more information about this symposium and the meeting in general, please see the meeting web pages at http://www.copernicus.org/EGS/egsga/nice00/nice00.htm

The deadline for Receipt of Abstracts is 15 December 1999. Abstracts should be submitted to the EGS Office using the various formats described on the web pages above.

Dear all,

With this message I would like to send an official good-bye to all subscribers of the SWEN newsletter. I want especially to thank you for all your input and suggestions to the newsletter that I received during my time as SWEN editor, while working in the "Space Environments and Effects Analysis Section" at ESA/ESTEC.

I wish you and your colleagues good luck and happiness in all your future Space Weather activities !

Sincerely, Norma B. Crosby
