2-Week CCMC/SWRC Space Weather Boot Camp
at NASA/Goddard (3 - 14 June 2013)
This is to let you know that we will have our inaugural Space Weather
REDI (Research, Education and Development Initiative) 2-week intense
training camp during 3 - 14 June 2013 at NASA/GSFC (Goddard Space
Flight Center), which is part of the broader CCMC/SWRC-Universities
Space Weather Research, Education, and Development Initiative
(SW REDI) (More on SW REDI can be found here:
Built upon previous training experience, this unique two-week
intensive camp/course includes: the in-house Integrated Space
Weather Analysis system iSWA (http://iswa.gsfc.nasa.gov); space
environment models installed at the CCMC (http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov); and the operational experience of the SWRC team (http://swrc.gsfc.nasa.gov).
While the camp/course is mainly geared towards those motivated
undergraduate students who either seek to be independent space
weather forecasters or those who seek to perform space weather
related research to fulfill academic requirements, it is also
appropriate for scientists and others new to space weather who
are interested in developing a global perspective regarding
space weather, as well as those aiming to broaden their research
Please let us know if you'd like to send some people/students
over (at participants' own cost/their home institution) to take
advantage of this opportunity so we can make proper arrangements.
Please feel free to forward this to those who may be interested.
