Session related to SPEARHEAD in the upcoming ESWW2024


A 100% Community Driven Session, CD5, on “Adverse Space Weather-the case of high energy Solar Energetic Particle events”, directly related to SPEARHEAD, has been accepted and is part of the European Space Weather Week (ESWW) 2024 program that will take place in Coimbra, Portugal between 04-08 November 2024.

The goal of this session is to provide a forum for new and ongoing efforts bridging the gap between lower and high energies in Solar Energetic Particle (SEP) events, facilitating space weather research and extending future predictive capabilities.

We look forward to contributions on:

  • energy spectra of very high-energy SEP events from beyond the nominal science-grade spacecraft instrument capabilities up to that of ground-based recordings;
  • combined measurements of very high-energy SEPs that bridge the energy gap (AMS-02, PAMELA, neutron monitors) ;
  • novel techniques to infer very high-energy observations from lower energy measurements;
  • applicability (of these measurements) into prediction chains of Space Weather conditions;
  • usability (of such measurements) on open scientific questions on the acceleration, injection and transport of SEP events;
