Abstract

In the PLASMON FP7-Space (A new, ground based data-assimilative model of the Plasmasphere - a critical contribution to Radiation Belts modeling for Space Weather purposes) project we are extending three existing global measuring networks, that can significantly contributes European SSA Space Weather assets and modeling capability. Two networks, AWDANet measuring VLF whistlers and EMMA measuring ULF FLRs are about to provide near real-time monitoring capability of the densities in the Plasmasphere, while the third network, AARDDVARK monitors precipitating particles from the Radiation Belts through VLF signal perturbations. The ground based density data are integrated into a data-assimilative model of the Plasmasphere, which is in turn used to compare model predictions on relativistic electron precipitations with measured data. The PLASMON project involves 11 partners from 8 countries, 5 of them are from non-EU countries. We also cooperate with NASA LWS plasmasphere modeling team.
