18:15 - 19:15      Marriott Marquis - Independence A-C>

We urge you to meet with representatives from NASA and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to become better informed about current and pending programs and recent developments at both Agencies that address the SPA research areas. This is your Town Hall; this one hour session provides an opportunity to learn about future plans for the discipline and to provide feedback to the funding agencies.

Note: We have a lot of relevant posters in SA21A.

SA21A: New Scientific Measurements in near-Earth Space II Posters

08:00 - 12:20     Walter E Washington Convention Center - Hall A-C (Poster Hall)

Several new space-based instruments and observatories dedicated to understanding conditions and processes in the ionosphere and upper atmosphere have come online in 2018. These systems will likely provide significant new scientific results and capability for operational model validation. This session is dedicated to informing the scientific community of the new observations that are now available and any new scientific findings that may be reported thus far from observatories in near-Earth space. Discussion of the potential or realization of scientific gains from collaborative efforts between ground-based instruments/networks or older space-based observatories is welcome.
