We are heading towards another winter and already started getting the view of northern lights in Svalbard. It makes perfect timing for our next webinar on studying polar atmosphere using Grand Challenge Initiative (GCI) cusp rocket missions in Svalbard on 23rd October 2020, Friday, during 15:00 - 16:30 (CEST). This webinar covers the following four talks:
- Jøran Moen (UNIS): GCI-Cusp history and its relevance to Svalbard studies.
- Andres Spicher (University of Oslo): GCI-Cusp: an observing system for the dynamics of the upper polar atmosphere above Svalbard.
- Douglas Rowland (NASA): The VISIONS-2 rocket mission: exploring atmospheric escape in the Earth's cusp.
- Kolbjørn Blix (Andøya Space Centre): Grand Challenge Initiative - M/LT project
