Upcoming STEVE Community Workshop on Oct 6-8, 2022

Mark Your Calendar for the second STEVE Community Workshop: Advancing Understanding of A New Atmospheric Phenomenon. This workshop will be hybrid and hosted at MIT Haystack Observatory on October 6-8, 2022.

The Second STEVE workshop will be a hybrid workshop with both in-person and virtual options. The in-person component will be held at MIT Haystack Observatory in Westford, Massachusetts, USA. The virtual component will be open to the STEVE community via Zoom and will be simulcast on YouTube. Note that capacity is limited for in person attendance at the MIT Haystack facilities. The virtual component will be free for virtual participants and welcomes citizen scientists.

What is the goal of the workshop? STEVE is now recognized as a geophysical phenomenon with numerous observational sightings and recent enlightening studies. The purpose of this workshop is to maintain community momentum on STEVE research. Observational and theoretical geospace scientists and stakeholders will gather to disseminate STEVE research findings, identify outstanding questions about the phenomenon, and to continue formulation of future research plans and collaborative studies on the topic.

At this 3 day workshop, attendees and organizers will focus on developing observation strategies, experimental campaigns and associated observation modes to fill in both synoptic and event-based data gaps. We will also organize modeling efforts, guided by known phenomenological characteristics to date, to answer key and evolving community questions about the physical morphology and dynamics of STEVE.

The organizing committee is deeply grateful for US National Science Foundation funding that enables the STEVE workshop under grant AGS-2025481.
