The SID monitor is an ISWI instrument (see the ISWI website for
more details). SID monitors have been deployed throughout the
world. Attached is a report written by a high school student
who used the SID monitor for a science project. The report is
remarkable, as is the project. A short excerpt:
Preface: Amongst the instruments distributed through
the ISWI are the SID space weather monitors. Designed
to detect changes to the ionosphere caused by solar activity,
these monitors are being distributed to high school and
early college students around the world. Over 700 instruments
have been placed, and requests continue to come in.
Finally, attached is a fine report by Dr C. Amory-Mazaudier about space
research in Africa during the years 2007-2012. The abstract goes
Abstract This article presents the results of a research network Europe Africa established in 1995 after the International Electrojet Equatorial Year (1992-1994). During the last decade, this research network has been involved in
two international projects: the International Heliophysical Year (2007-2009) and International Space Weather Initiative (2010-2012). The participation in these international projects increased the number of PhD and multiplied the number of scientific papers. Many scientific results have been obtained. Teaching and working methods have been also developed. We emphasize in this article the last two points.
