From the Contents: The Solar Dynamics Observatory.- The Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on the Solar Dynamics Observatory.- Initial Calibration of the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on the Solar Dynamics Observatory.- Heliophysics Event Knowledgebase for the Solar Dynamics Observatory and Beyond.- Computer Vision for the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).- Extreme Ultraviolet Experiment (EVE) on the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO): Overview of Science Objectives, Instrument Design, Data Products and Model Developments.
This volume is dedicated to the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which was launched 11 February 2010. The articles focus on the spacecraft and its instruments: the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA), the Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE), and the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI). Articles within also describe calibration results and data processing pipelines that are critical to understanding the data and products, concluding with a description of the successful Education and Public Outreach activities.
This book is geared towards anyone interested in using the unprecedented data from SDO, whether for fundamental heliophysics research, space weather modeling and forecasting, or educational purposes.
