WHI Campaigns

Campaign Summary Page
Solar Targeted Observing Campaigns
1) Linking the Corona to the Solar Wind at Ulysses (to occur at the NE limb of the Sun)
2) Origin of the Slow Solar Wind (to occur at a streamer at the limb, probably NE quadrant)
3) Coronal Hole Boundary and Low latitude coronal holes(to occur on disk, probably a polar hole, but an equatorial hole if available)
4) Quiet Sun (on disk, near center)
Solar Target of Opportunity Campaigns
1) Active Regions
2) Equatorial Coronal Hole Study
3) SOHO JOP 194: Activity in Filaments and Filament Channels
Geospace Targeted Observing Campaigns
1) Day-to-day variability of total electron content (TEC) and scintillations
2) Day-to-day variability of F-region vertical drifts at the magnetic equator
3) Development and Decay of the Equatorial Anomaly
