Wednesday

  08:45-18:00  Evolution towards "4D Ionosphere"
Round table discussion "Which are the main open questions that can be addressed with Swarm data, in coordination with other dataset?" "Which future studies / models are needed to better understand the Ionospheric physics with respect to: climatological models, space weather prediction/forecast and highly-dynamic and local phenomena?" "What is a realistic time-line for this?" …
