  1. PLANS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL HELIOPHYSICAL YEAR (IHY) An international program of scientific research Sept 2005 Joseph Davila, Barbara Thompson, Nat Gopalswamy NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center

  2. Science Distributed Instruments Outreach History Elements of IHY Plan • Coordinated Investigation Programs (CIPs) • Distributed small instrument program • Education, outreach and • IGY History preservation Register at http://ihy2007.org to receive news and update information by email IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  3. Coordinated Investigation Programs (CIPs) • Basic unit of scientific research within IHY • Will combine observation and modeling to address an observational objective • Grass-Roots Driven, originated by researcher using web form • Draft version being tested now • Available by mid July • Many examples identified in planning workshops • Comparative Planetary Aeronomy • Whole Heliosphere Intervals • Reconnection, Shock acceleration, … etc • CIPs organized into Universal Processes by coordinators • Cross-cutting scientific data analysis workshops organized by Universal Process IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  4. Distributed Instruments • Objective is to help facilitate the deployment of distributed instrument arrays • Extension of existing arrays, or new arrays • Provides meaningful participation for developing nations • Instrument providers are united with university groups from potential host nations • Potential Instruments, GPS, radio dishes, magnetometers, all-sky cameras, additional neutron monitors, etc. • Implemented jointly with United Nations Basic Space Science Program • UNBSS program devoted to this effort through 2009 • Three-year work plan approved by COPUOS and Gen Assembly • First Workshop in UAE November 2005 • Instrument concepts selected by Sep 2005, contact Nat Gopalswamy (gopals@fugee.gsfc.nasa.gov) to be considered • Other participants selected by Sep 2005 IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  5. Obsolete IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  6. Outreach • Use upcoming solar eclipses to provide opportunity for young Islamic students to meet scientists, and become interested in science careers • Radio receivers to be located in each country visited, monitoring the ionosphere, as part on an international science program to study lightning and sprites. • Coordinated with UN-BSS and summer schools IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  7. History • IGY Gold Certificates to recognize the contribution of IGY participants(joint with eGY) • Open to all participants in IGY • Recipients provide historical material from IGY • Nomination and criteria available at IHY website • Funded by IUGG • Sputnik/Explorer 50th Anniversary Symposia • Sputnik anniversary (Oct 4, 2007) to be celebrated in Russia • Coordinated ceremony at Russian embassy in Washington, DC • Explorer anniversary (Jan 31, 2008) to be celebrated in US • Yoji Kondo to organize these events IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  8. Organization Chart IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  9. Potential Areas of Science Collaboration IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  10. IHY Overall Schedule • 2004: Regional coordination meetings, campaigns begin to be defined, synergy/coordination discussions with professional organizations • 2005: Synthesis from regional to international, merging of science working groups and campaigns, identifying missing initiatives • 2006: Prototyping year, preliminary work, review and finalize campaign proposals, proposals to national funding agencies • 2007: IHY campaigns • 2008-9: CDAWs, publications, archives IHY (http://ihy2007.org)

  11. Near Term Events Calendar • IHY-UNBSS Planning Workshop • United Arab Emirates, November 2005 • Contact Nat Gopalswamy (gopals@fugee.gsfc.nasa.gov) • Over 40 IHY-related sessions at Fall AGU • Distributed Instruments, Polar Window to the Heliosphere, Reconnection a Universal Process, … • European Planning Meeting for Coordinated Investigation Programmes • January 2006 IHY (http://ihy2007.org)
