CDAW space data analysis progresses


  • Robert H. Manka


The Coordinated Data Analysis Workshop (CDAW) 8 series of workshops is well underway. The next workshop, CDAW 8.2, is scheduled for January 26–28, 1987, and will be hosted by the National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC) at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. There was a pilot workshop in July 1986, and in October 1986, more than 40 scientists attended the CDAW 8.1 workshop at Goddard. The initial workshop topic is a critical examination of the concept of the near-Earth neutral line model and plasmoid formation.
