 The International Space Environment Service (ISES)
The International Space Environment Service (ISES) maintains the International Geophysical Calendar (IGC) which recommends dates for solar and geophysical observations which cannot be carried out continuously. The IGC has been issued annually since 1957. ISES is currently evaluating the need for such a product in the current scientific environment in which many instruments operate continuously. If you or your group use (or would like to use) the calendar, kindly contact Robyn Fiori (Robyn.Fiori[at]NRCan-RNCan.gc.ca). Please note that based on the response received to this announcement, ISES will evaluate whether or not this service should be discontinued.

 Two coordinated international efforts to identify solar signals in climateDear VarSITI colleagues,
I am forwaring a message from the S-RIP Co-leads and SolarMIP steering committee on the new model of the solar signals in climate, which is strongly related to the VarSITI activity particularly for ROSMIC.
Best regards, Kazuo Shiokawa
