1. Review of action items

* New items 1) On A. Gabriel/A. Kosovichev: CDS part for JOP134 to be defined * From previous SPWG: 1) On Jeff Newmark/JOP131 authors: Determine final program for EIT -- Closed. 2) On Klaus Wilhelm/JOP130 authors: Modify pointing to accommodate SUMER -- Closed. 3) On Kuen Ko/JOP130 authors: Work out alternative to UVCS employing an offset pointing. -- Closed: Drop offset pointing observations. 4) On SOCs: Determine EIT program for revised JOP124 -- Closed. 5) On JOP133 authors: Determine whether archival data can be used. -- The JOP author replied to this query: > I have not found all the lines I wish to study so please consider my > JOP. A part from, that I need all those lines in a protuberance > observed at the same time. I have a CDS Study written by Dave Pike > and it was myself who made the observation progamme for Sumer > under the supervision of Phillipe Lemaire

2. Boundary conditions

* No maneuvers are planned for November. * MEDOC Campaign #6, 30 October - 12 November * MDI Continuous for November: MDI Continuous starts November 22 at 06:50 UT MDI Continuous Contact Ends November 28 at 01:05 UT. * Submodes: Submode 6 except Oct 30 - Nov 13 (Submode 5) and Nov 30 - Dec 19 (Submode 5) * Other: - TRACE eclipse season starts November 8, atmospheric absorption has already started. Simplified timelines, minimal planner involvement, but coordination on case by case basis possible. Contact:

3. JOPs status

New JOPs: - JOP134 High-Resolution Study of Supergranulation: Plasma Flows and Magnetic Field Structures, MDI/THEMIS POC: Alexander Kosovichev No objections. CDS may join the observations (TBD). Updated JOPs: - JOP130 Solar Maximum Equatorial Slow Wind, CDS/SUMER/UVCS/TRACE/EIT/MDI/LASCO, POC: Alan Gabriel Some changes to CDS/SUMER/MDI parts, LASCO part (synoptic) added, and "Solar conditions Contingency" part added. UVCS offset pointing will not be performed. - JOP132 ULYSSES/SOHO Quadrature Study, UVCS/CDS/LASCO/Ulysses, POC: Steve Suess CDS specifications/line list added.

6. AOB

* Next SPWG: Friday, November 17 at 2:00 pm in EAF * REMINDER: DSN support should be requested at least 6 months in advance. Keep this in mind for: ground-based collaborations that require MDI support, stellar observations that require NRT, etc. * Offpoint maneuver not expected this year
