Online Seminar Series

SCOSTEP/PRESTO Online Seminar Series

In response to the current difficulties of hosting meetings in person, SCOSTEP/PRESTO is hosting online seminars to deliver the latest scientific topics and/or instructive review presentations on solar-terrestrial physics related to SCOSTEP’s PRESTO program. This online seminar is organized with the support of the Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research (ISEE), Nagoya University, Japan.  The seminar details with recordings are also available at this link. 

The 14th SCOSTEP Online Seminar by Dr. Christine Gabrielse will be held via online on July 5 at 2000 UT.

To join the seminar please register via the zoom address below.
