Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey White Papers Workshops

Purpose and Scope

This series of workshops will provide a platform for members of the CEDAR community to collaboratively present, refine, and converge on white paper ideas that will lead to high-quality submissions to the Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey.

White paper submissions are due by March 2022, and the community will be given at least a couple months’ notice before the submissions are due.

The Cedar Science Steering Committee and USRA/Lunar and Planetary Institute are facilitating this process in two ways:

  1. Facilitating collaborative writing sessions for identified white paper ideas: We request people or teams who are working on white paper efforts to reach out to Asti Bhatt (asti.bhatt@sri.com) and Doug Rowland (douglas.e.rowland@nasa.gov) if they need support.
  2. Organizing workshops:
    • The topic of the first virtual workshop on October 29, 2021 was Organizing the Decadal White Paper Submissions (refer to Workshop #1 tab for the agenda and related documents).
    • The topic of the second virtual workshop is Solar Ground-Based Projects and is scheduled for February 22–23, 2022, 1:00–5:00 EST on both days. Refer to the Workshop #2 tab for detailed information, including abstract submission instructions.
    • A workshop is planned on outlining science questions and research infrastructure needs for the Mesosphere-lower thermosphere/Ionosphere research for the next decade. The exact date will be announced soon.
