Team title: Ionospheric Scoreboard Development 

Team ID: G2B-09

Team Leads:

Participants:

 

 

Keywords (impact): Navigation and/or Communications

Keywords (activity type): Requirements , Modeling, Forecasting, Assessment 
 
Introduction:
Scoreboards provide a pathway from past event ionospheric analysis to ionospheric forecasts, by identifying and documenting needs for driver improvements and obstacles to forecasting.

Objectives:
We will run ionospheric models in past event, nowcast, and forecast mode and assess model performance compared to ground truth data, such as from ionosondes.
Expected output includes:
- identification of potential scoreboard parameter
- processed data for model comparisons
- sample scoreboard for a single event


Action Topics:

  • Understand and forecast the global state of the ionosphere,
  • Improve the ionospheric forecasting window through the definition and forecast of ionospheric drivers in the sun, the solar wind, the magnetosphere and the lower atmosphere,
  • Assessment of modeling capability of local TEC on different spatial and temporal scales


Cluster with overlapping topics:
G1: Geomagnetic environment, G2A: Atmosphere variability
