SOHO SPWG Minutes
Friday, October 20, 2000
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
2) On Klaus Wilhelm/JOP130 authors: Modify pointing to accommodate SUMER
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
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.
Submode 6 except Oct 30 - Nov 13 (Submode 5)
and Nov 30 - Dec 19 (Submode 5)
- TRACE eclipse season starts November 8, atmospheric absorption
has already started. Simplified timelines, minimal planner involvement,
but coordination on case by case basis possible.
3. JOPs status
- 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).
- JOP130 Solar Maximum Equatorial Slow Wind,
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.

then possible extensions with offlimb REFSPECS (w/UVCS)
super-refspec on both detectors. Then door closed.
POC: Dietmar Germerott, Enrico Landi
b) Individual instrument plans
* Oct 25-Nov 2 Simultaneous Observations of Multi-Loop Systems, (#6580)
CDS/Tenerife VTT, 10-17UT, POC:Gerhard Rank (firstname.lastname@example.org)

* Nov 28-Dec 3 UVCS/Ulysses South Pole Magnetic Reversal
c) Intercalibration activities
* Intercal 1, CDS/EIT
- During week 46 (Nov 13-19).
5. Preview of future months
* See the Monthly Calendar at:
* 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
