Solar-terrestrial news from NSF



As summer arrives, the pace of Solar-Terrestrial (S/T) research quickens with field programs, workshops, conferences, and so on, not to mention the efforts of individuals released from the tyranny of grading. Summer 1986 saw the joint Balloon-Viking Campaign, led by G. Parks (University of Washington, AK-50, Room 202, ATG Building, Seattle, WA 98105). Excellent X ray imaging, radar and Viking data were obtained. In a separate effort, W. Heikkila (University of Texas at Dallas, Box 830688, MS F022, Richardson, TX 75083) obtained incoherent scatter radar data in conjunction with Viking passes. Both data sets are now under analysis, and if you have data to contribute and/or wish to participate in the analysis, please contact Parks or Heikkila.
