Next Step Space Weather Benchmarks Town Hall
Thursday, September 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Next Step Benchmarks is an effort funded by NSF and NASA that has gathered 32 of the world’s leading space weather scientists to develop recommendations for improving the characterization of extreme space weather events. Initial characterizations of 1-in-100-year and theoretical maximum events for five space weather phenomena were described in the Space Weather Phase 1 Benchmarks report, released by the White House’s National Science and Technology Council in 2018.
The Next Step Benchmarks team is developing a public report that will provide recommendations to improve the estimates found in the Phase 1 report. The Town Hall on September 26, 2019 in Washington, D.C. will be an opportunity for the space community to provide feedback on proposed recommendations and priorities for studies, data acquisition, and long-term research that would improve the characterization of extreme space weather events.
