Summary of AuroraPHILE working team discussions at April 2017 working meeting

User Needs
The requirement for information on the auroral ionosphere is broadly driven by two types of users: (1) those for whom the properties of the auroral ionosphere represent the final product, such as energetic particle fluxes, location of visible aurora, ionospheric currents, and (2) those who use auroral properties as input to models that specify electron densities, TEC, scintillation, neutral atmosphere densities and temperature, Joule heating, and other quantities.

Working Team Goals
To establish quantitative means to measure the accuracy and reliability of modeled properties of the auroral ionosphere, including particle precipitation, conductivities, electric fields, neutral winds, currents, and Joule heating.

Working Team Deliverables
The working team will establish a set of properties that describe the state of auroral particle precipitation and electrodynamics, and then quantify the accuracy and reliability currently achievable using a combination of data and models. Parameters that specify the auroral ionosphere will include both local and global quantities.
