Whitepaper #180 in the Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics) 2024-2033. Main topics: basic research; infrastructure/workforce/other programmatic. Additional topics: ground-based missions/projects; user-need-driven basic space weather research; state of […]
We outline a proposal for a Geospace Radar to update the existing NSF AGS Facilities. The whitepaper reviews conclusions from a recent NSF-sponsored workshop and then focuses on the science objectives that could be met with a Geospace Radar deployed in the subauroral zone and the technological developments required to realize it. Workforce development surrounding the project is emphasized.
