2nd US Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation (HamSCI) Workshop

Over the past few years, the Center for Solar Research has been working to build a citizen science collaboration between the amateur (ham) radio and professional space science communities. This has resulted in a collective known as HamSCI, the Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation (hamsci.org). This effort has led to vibrant discussions and participation from both communities, as well as numerous peer-reviewed publications in AGU journals.

From March 22-23, 2019, the 2nd US HamSCI workshop will take place at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. This is an excellent opportunity to share scientific ideas with citizen scientists and give input to the direction of citizen science in our field.

I would like to invite abstracts, presentations, and demonstrations that would be of joint interest to the professional science and amateur radio communities. This usually includes papers related to the ionosphere, space weather, and radio science and propagation. Any topic that is of interest to both communities will be welcomed.

Participant support is available. Full workshop details are available at http://hamsci.org/hamsci2019. Please e-mail me at hamsci@hamsci.org for information.
