Triennial Earth-Sun Summit (TESS)
Leon Golub
30 Aug 2014

The Triennial Earth-Sun Summit (TESS) is a joint meeting of the Space Physics and Aeronomy Section of the American Geophysical Union and the Solar Physics Division of the American Astronomical Society. The inaugural meeting will take place 26 April-1 May, 2015 in Indianapolis. TESS is intended to be a gathering of the entire Heliophysics community, including the four traditional sub-disciplines devoted to studies of the Sun, heliosphere, magnetosphere, and ionosphere-thermosphere-mesosphere. The overarching goal is to promote greater interaction and unity within this community. The meeting site has been selected to provide an excellent environment for this to occur, and the scientific and social programs are being designed with this goal in mind. In particular, the scientific program will include plenary talks covering each of the sub-disciplines, as well as inter-disciplinary and discipline-specific sessions with invited and contributed talks and posters. Some sessions will be led by organizers selected by the Scientific Organizing Committee (“AGU style”), while others will be created by the SOC after the abstracts have been submitted (“SPD style”). Further information can be found at aas.org/meetings/tess2015 or by contacting Co-Chairs Jim Klimchuk (James.A.Klimchuk@nasa.gov) and Dana Longcope (dana@physics.montana.edu).

Announcing the NASA Living With a Star Institute
Call for Proposals
Deadline 15 September

Purpose

The concept of a LWS Institute (small working group style meetings) that focuses on well-defined problems that demand intense, direct interactions between colleagues in neighboring disciplines has been created to encourage and facilitate a deeper understanding of the variety of processes that link the Sun’s magnetic variability (radiation, solar wind, energetic particles) to Earth’s environment and atmosphere. The goal of NASA Living With a Star program is to “Develop the scientific understanding necessary to enable the U.S. to effectively address those aspects of the connected Sun
Earth system that directly affects life and society.” Thus, the LWS program with its focus on the basic science underlying all aspects of space weather and climate, acts as a catalyst to bring the many research disciplines and applications communities together to deepen the understanding of the system of systems created by the Sun-Earth connection. To that end, the LWS Institute Working Groups will provide an opportunity for scientists from all over the world to contribute to the evolution of heliophysics.

The inaugural LWS Institute is designed to facilitate a bridge between cutting-edge heliophysics research and a societally relevant technology area that is affected by space weather. Competitively selected working groups will define and scope new research that will make a critical difference to this technology.

An LWS Institute Working Group (WG) proposal will:

• Focus on a particular technology area that will be positively affected by space weather research advances,
• Identify a team that is composed of members who perform heliophysics research that is relevant to the affected technology, who forecast or model space weather for this technology, and who use (or who will use) this technology (when it is successfully improved),
• Describe how the team will quantify and parameterize the magnitude and pathways of the impacts on the affected technology and will scope the new ranges of targeted research that accordingly will be needed, and
• Articulate the impacts of this targeted research by envisioning the resulting, improved operational capability that will make a positive difference to society.

Each LWS Institute WG is required – as a final report – to jointly submit a peer-reviewed study that provides an integrated view of the space weather impacts on the selected technology area, a quantification of the magnitude of the impact for space weather of different magnitudes, a description of the impact pathways and of the scientific understanding achieved during the course of the WG, either a method to positively impact the technology or a research plan by which positive impact to the technology could be quantifiably achieved through space weather research advances, and a high-level graphical and textual vision of the resulting operational technology solution. The team will also provide a Working Group Report for the benefit of the LWS community.

Proposals should focus on:
• Improving understanding of the process and/or magnitude of the impacts of space weather on the selected system,
• Identifying the science needed to enable our forecast ability for that system, and
• Outlining, if not executing, research that may develop abilities to reduce the impacts of space weather on that system.

2014 Working Group topic area:

We are seeking proposals that develop these principles in relation to the effects of geomagnetically induced currents (GICs) during CME-driven geomagnetic disturbances (GMDs). Proposals may focus on particular historical GMDs or on a statistical analysis of many such events. The impacted technological infrastructure may be (all or part of) the US high-voltage power distribution network or its components (e.g., transformers, generators, power lines, etc.), or may be equipment powered by the low-voltage distribution network or societal functions enabled by that (e.g., communication systems, transportation-navigation systems, or systems related to safety and security).

Obituary: Darrell Lynn Judge
Leonid Didkovsky
30 Aug 2014

Professor Darrell Lynn Judge, founder and former director of the University of Southern California’s Space Sciences Center, died in Temecula, California on August 26, 2014 from complications following an automobile accident. He is known for his pioneering research of the Sun, the heliosphere, planetary atmospheres, and the local interstellar medium as well as his contributions to atomic and molecular physics, and spectroscopy. He has received numerous awards for the highly successful instrumentation he has developed for satellite, sounding rocket, and deep space observations, and was elected to the Fellowship of the American Physical Society for his spectroscopy studies of the fundamental properties of atoms and molecules.

Judge was born in Albion, a rural community in Illinois, on November 2, 1934. In 1956 he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Mathematics from Eastern Illinois State University after which he began work for the TRW Corporation. While at TRW he received two patents for ultrasensitive superconductor-based fluxgate and field gradient magnetometers. In parallel with this work he pursued graduate studies at the University of Southern California, earning his Master’s degree in 1963 and his PhD in 1965 for atomic and molecular studies based on fluorescence spectra excited with Vacuum Ultraviolet radiation. Shortly after completing his graduate work, Judge joined USC’s Physics and Astronomy faculty where remained throughout his career.

From his aerospace work at TRW, and his spectroscopy work at USC, Judge developed an interest in applications of atomic and molecular physics in space science. Of particular interest, were space-based observations of photon flux in the Vacuum/Extreme Ultraviolet (VUV/EUV) to X-ray spectral ranges. Beginning in the early years of the Space Age, he continued to develop and improve instrumentation for such observations. One of his early successes was an Ultraviolet Photometer which, with its low mass and power consumption was well-suited to deep space missions. After demonstrating the design prototype aboard a 1968 sounding rocket flight from Wallops Island Virginia he proposed, and was granted the opportunity, to include the UV Photometers on the Pioneer 10 and 11 missions. These instruments provided outer planetary atmosphere data on the characteristics of the Jovian and Saturnian atmospheres as well as twenty five years of data on the local interstellar hydrogen and helium distribution. For this work, Judge received NASA’s Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal and two Group Achievement Awards in 1974.

In 1978, Judge founded the USC Space Sciences Center (SSC) – an organization comprised of both teaching faculty and professional scientists with non-academic appointments – in order to strengthen the University’s research programs in the space sciences. Under Judge’s leadership SSC achieved this goal, establishing active satellite and sounding rocket programs, as well as programs in laboratory spectroscopy and astrophysical data analysis. He served as the director of SSC for nearly 35 years prior to his retirement in 2013.

Judge and his SSC team have done pioneering work measuring solar EUV irradiance which has yielded both novel instrument designs and highly valuable irradiance data sets. Throughout his career, Judge used sounding rockets not only as an observing platform, but as a test-bed for developing new EUV instruments with greater absolute accuracy and long-term stability. His Solar EUV Hitchhiker experiment, which flew on three Space Shuttle missions provided valuable solar irradiance and atmospheric occultation data, and brought USC increased recognition within the space science community. Judge was also the PI for two highly successful orbiting solar EUV instruments, the EUV SpectroPhotometer (ESP), part of the EUV Variability Experiment on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, and the Solar EUV Monitor (SEM), part of the Charge, Element, and Isotope Analysis System aboard ESA/NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory. SEM and ESP are transmission grating spectrometers with excellent absolute accuracy, long-term stability, and high time cadence. The SEM measurements, which date back to the beginning of 1996, are the longest running continuous EUV irradiance data set available, spanning nearly two solar cycles. Both instruments remain fully operational and continue to serve the scientific and space weather communities. Judge was well known for his kindness and generosity. In spite of his busy schedule he always found time to share his knowledge and advice with his students and research staff. It was rare for him to finish a meeting without inviting someone to his ranch to ride horses or sample the wine from his vineyard. Even into retirement he insisted on taking on various administrative hassles to free up other SSC researchers to “do real science.”

Although gentle, Judge was far from laid-back.  He had a sharp eye and little tolerance for imperfection, be it questionable grammar in a research proposal or an improperly installed floor tile in his laboratory’s clean room. He would often explain that success is sometimes a matter of “not leaving sticks around for people to beat you with.”

Judge is survived by his wife Marjorie, his daughters Andrea and Pamela, and his son Kevin.

Advance podcast for the 2017 eclipse at 365daysofastronomy.org
Jay Pasachoff
30 Aug 2014

On the minus-third anniversary of the 2017 United States total eclipse, I posted a 9-minute podcast on the website of 365daysofastronomy.org, an organization that has survived since the International Year of Astronomy.  A transcript is posted in addition to the podcast, and they can be directly accessed at
cosmoquest.org/x/365daysofastronomy/2014/08/21/aug-21st-the-minus-third-anniversary-of-the-2017-us-crossing-total-solar-eclipse/

The mapmaker Michael Zeiler has posted an animation of the eclipse path, from Oregon to South Carolina, at:
GreatAmericanEclipse.com
A variety of mapping and other links appear at our IAU website:
eclipses.info

The Canadian meteorologist Jay Anderson has a website at eclipser.ca that includes cloudiness statistics across the US from 22 years of satellite data (a 2 pm map across the country but a 10-am time in the table for the western US to match eclipse time better).  The SPD will meet at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, over the days immediately following the eclipse, so it is my understanding that hotel rooms will be available there to include eclipse day.  AAS’s High Energy Astronomy Division will meet there in the days preceding the eclipse.

Anyone interested in carrying out local Education and Public Outreach is invited to coordinate with us.  E/PO meetings were held this month by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific in San Francisco and with AAS sponsorship at Columbia, Missouri, where the largest university in the path of totality is located.
