on 23 July 2014

PROJECT TITLE: Auroral Electrodynamics with Swarm — ALEOS

Coordinator: The Institute of Space Science 

Partners: NationaI Institute for Lasers Plasma and Radiation Physics

Period: 19 November 2012 - 18 November 2015

Project director: Octav Marghitu

Project team:

Description: ALEOS concentrates on the auroral region, where the magnetic field lines provide a direct connection between the ionosphere–thermosphere and the magnetosphere. 

The project supports the implementation of a Swarm data exploitation proposal, accepted by ESA in Feb. 2012, and benefits from the expertise of colleagues in Germany, Canada, Sweden, and Finland.

ALEOS interacts closely with the VALS project – supporting Romanian contributions to Swarm data validation activities led by GFZ Potsdam (to be presented by Dr. Adrian Blagau).

ALEOS interacts also with the Idei project M–ICAR, http://gpsm.spacescience.ro/micar, and the project POLARIS, http://gpsm.spacescience.ro/polaris, carried on at the International Space Science Institute, Bern.

Contributions to the STAR programme objectives:

The strong involvement in a key ESA Earth Observation mission contributes to Romania’s participation in ESA programmes, which is the main goal of STAR.

ALEOS answers as well several other goals of the STAR programme:
