Location: Graz, AT
For 2012 the focus will be on the Space Weather science and data, following also a earlier successful international initiative on space weather which was designed to build and promote the observation, understanding, and prediction of space weather phenomena and to communicate the results to the public. The International Heliophysical Year (IHY) provided a successful model for the deployment of arrays of small scientific instruments (magnetometers, radio antennas, GPS receivers, all-sky cameras, particle detectors, etc.) in new and scientifically interesting geographic locations to provide global measurements of heliospheric phenomena, and involved more than 70 countries during a two-year period from February 2007 to February 2009. Scientists from many countries now participate in the instrument operation, data collection, analysis, and publication of scientific results, working at the forefront of science research.
