2016 AGU Meeting Summary

December 2, 2016

It was a busy week for SORCE scientists at the 2016 Fall AGU Meeting in San Francisco, CA, Dec. 12-16. They contributed in several different sessions focusing on solar irradiance measurements and modeling.

SORCE PI Tom Woods presented the prestigious Parker Lecture on Tuesday, Dec. 13. The Eugene Parker Lecture honors the life and work of solar astrophysicist, Professor Eugene Parker. Tom spoke on “Spectroscopic Exploration of Solar Flares” to a full crowd.

Tom Woods accepted a plaque following his Parker Lecture from Dave Sibeck, NASA/GSFC.

SORCE-related AGU oral presentations included:

  • The New Climate Data Record of Solar Irradiance: Comparisons with Observations and Solar Irradiance Models Over a Range of Solar Activity Time Scales
    Presenting author:  Odele Coddington
  • Impacts of spectral solar irradiance on inter-sensor radiometric calibrations
    Presenting author:  Dong Wu
  • Total Solar Irradiance changes between 2010 and 2014 from the PREcision MOnitor Sensor absolute radiometer (PREMOS/PICARD)
    Presenting author:  Gaël Cessateur (Lead: W. Schmutz)
Dr. Marty Snow

Marty Snow gave a talk on professional development for students who participate in the LASP REU program (ED34A-03 “Career options after an REU: not just grad school.”)
