Infrastructure for monitoring the ionosphere in South America will be discussed on February at INPE

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

The registration for the workshop Monitoring Ionosphere Over South America (MIMOSA) is already open (new deadline: January 18th) and is free of charge. The workshop MIMOSA will be on February, 26 2013 at Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE), So Jos dos Campos, in So Paulo State. Sponsored by the European Space Agency (ESA), the MIMOSA project will map the current systems and installations in the South America for monitoring the ionosphere.

There will be a competence survey focused on the assessment of the current South American capabilities on ionospheric monitoring, in order to integrate the existing facilities with new installations, to effectively support and/or improve space weather activities to assist GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) operations, as informed by the researcher Emlia Correia, from INPE, about MIMOSA.

The partners of the project are the Istituto Nacional di Geofisica e Vulcanologia and the Politecnica di Torino, both from Italy, and Nottingham University from United Kingdom. In South America, the collaborators of MIMOSA are INPE, Universidade Estadual Paulista Jlio de Mesquita Filho (UNESP) from Brazil, and the Universidad Nacional de Tucuman from Argentine.

The workshop at INPE has the purpose to disseminate the MIMOSA project and to promote the collaboration between the universities and the public and private institutions in the South America, as well as to identify the current systems of monitoring the ionosphere (GNSS and others).

Besides to promote the contact between the institutions interested in to host new instrumentation or to share the existing data, the workshop will discuss the assessment to the state-of-art in this research field and will stimulate collaborations of new activities and future services.
