GEM-CEDAR Ionospheric Conductance Challenge
CCMC is supporting GEM-CEDAR Ionospheric Conductance Challenge, which was initiated during 2016 joint CEDAR-GEM summer workshop by the GEM Focus Group of Modeling Methods and Validation (MM&V).
Goals of the GEM-CEDAR Ionospheric Conductance Challenge:
- To collect observations of conductance and drivers of conductance to use as ground truth for conductance models.
- To quantify differences between observations and models.
- To determine reasons for data/model, model/model and data/data differences.
- To demonstrate global effects of conductance models
GEM-CEDAR Workshop Sessions
