Meeting Goals

PUNCH is an in-development NASA mission that will image the outer corona and solar wind throughout the inner heliosphere. Major science topics include the origin and evolution of the ambient solar wind and turbulence within it, and the physics, tracking, and predictability of transient events including CMEs, CIRs, and shocks.  In addition, we will have sessions on coronal jets, PUNCH extended impacts through outreach, student engagement, and space-weather inputs, connections to other missions/projects and modeling efforts, and PUNCH in the context of the international Great Observatory and the era of Open Data.

Talks will be streamed live and recorded for future inclusion on this website, but there will be no planned hybrid component.

Abstracts due Thursday, June 15, 2023 (In Person Only)

Register by Wednesday, June 28, 2023 (In Person $125; & Streaming - No cost)
