Priorities for the Coming Three Months

Priorities as presented by Richard Harrison, discussed and agreed upon by SWT:

  1. Finish commissioning and get into science operations (individual)
  2. Each group produce publicity material for 2 May event (may need dedicated ops/target)
  3. Start monitoring & calibration operations/observations, including intercalibration sequences
  4. Quick return & first look observations
  5. Start some basic JOPs on 1 April
  6. Synoptic observations

The ``first month of SOHO science'' starts on 1 April. For CDS plans for the first month see annex 8 (CDS Science Operations Memo #1).

Priorities for the first 3 months of SOHO science are:

  1. Coronal Holes
  2. Streamers
  3. Diffuse Corona
  4. Quiet Network
SOWG to prioritize JOPs in compliance with these 4 topics.

CME studies may get some emphasis towards the end of the first 3 months.

Two months period of continuous DSN contact: not yet clear when DSN will be able to support; request submitted to have it as early as possible but no later than July/August timeframe.
