The Living With a Star Geospace Program
Author and Affiliation:
Sibeck, D. G.(NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, United States)
Abstract: NASA's Living With a Star program addresses research problems with societal impact. As specified by its mission definition team, the Geospace component of the program addresses two regions which pose the greatest hazards: the Earth's radiation belts and the mid-latitude ionosphere. Two Radiation Belt Storm Probe spacecraft with identical energetic particle, plasma wave, and magnetic field instrumentation will make the observations needed to distinguish spatial from temporal effects and identify the mechanisms governing particle energization, transport, and loss. Two Ionosphere- Thermosphere Storm Probes on inclined low-altitude and midlatitude orbits will make the observations needed to distinguish between special and temporal effects, characterize the response to varying solar EUV radiation and geomagnetic storms, and identify the mechanisms generating mid-latitude ionospheric irregularities. An imager on a mission of opportunity will provide the observations needed to place these in situ measurements in context.
