Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey White Papers Workshop #2:
Next Generation Advances in Ground-Based Solar Physics — A Decadal Preparation
February 22–23, 2022

This workshop is focused on organizing the writing of Solar and Space Physics Decadal White Papers on the solar ground-based instruments and facilities needed to advance solar and space weather research in the next decade and beyond. The major projects of past decadal surveys such as FASR and COSMO, as well as ground-based synoptic networks such as ngGONG, SPRING, and neutron monitors, will be presented to bring the community up to date on these efforts, but the workshop also provides the opportunity to discuss other ideas for ground-based platforms envisioned for the next decade to address outstanding solar and space weather science questions. Synergy with other parts of the solar-terrestrial system will also be explored.

Next Generation Advances in Ground-Based Solar Physics — A Decadal Preparation workshop abstracts were accepted for the following topics:

  • Photospheric/Chromospheric Structure and Phenomena
  • Coronal/Heliospheric Structure and Phenomena
  • Paper-Writing Strategies and Overarching Science Topics
  • Invited Talk: Select this option if you were invited by the Program Committee
