First Results Debuted at AGU!

December 13, 2012

Professor Xinlin Li debuted the first science results of CSSWE at the annual American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference in San Francisco last week.  The results were very well received, and the science community is anxious to get their hands on the data which, in the words of Professor Li, “far exceeds expectations”.

On another note: 90 days on orbit and still counting!  And we have 68 days of science data available.  Most of the data coincides with periods when the Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP), now renamed to the Van Allen Probes, were also taking science measurements.  Students working on CSSWE are judiciously processing REPTile data, looking for conjunctions with the Van Allen Probes that could provide clues on the dynamics of the radiation belts.
