SOHO Weekly Meeting Minutes Week 05, 27 January - 2 February 2003

Status Report From: Goddard Space Flight Center
Posted: Monday, January 27, 2003

1. Announcements
----------------
* Visitors from Finland on 11 February at ~11am.

* During the Kudo-Fujikawa comet obsrvations, the regular LASCO program 
  will drop 1 C2 image per hour, and they will be in half resolution, 
  during this campaign. C3 will be at the usual cadence (2/hour), times 
  will be somewhat different, and one of the two will be half res. This
  may also impact the generation of the real-time gif/jpeg images (at
  worst, only the one full resolution C3 image per hour will make it to 
  the web pages). Some EIT 195 CME Watch images will also have to be 
  dropped during this campaign.

2. Operations Constraints
-------------------------
* EIT bakeout begins on Friday

* JOP161 test run on Thursday (TBC)

* Commanding times for the week:

  Monday -    Gap from 15:30-18:30 UT then D27.
  Tuesday -   D27 from 16-18:30 UT with a gap before and after.
  Wednesday - D27 starting at 20 UT.
  Thursday -  D27 starting at 19 UT.
  Friday -    Downlink only station from 14-17:30 UT then D54 then
              D27 starts at 18:30 UT.
  Saturday -  D27 starting at 18 UT.
  Sunday -    Downlink only station starting at 18:30 UT.

LASCO   -- Ops Team             UVCS    -- Steve Cranmer/John Raymond/  
TRACE   -- Dawn Myers                        Yuan-Kuen Ko


Relevant Notes
--------------
CDS:    Full sun observation on Monday. EUV intensities in AR's 
	study on Tuesday and Wednesday. GIS spectral atlas on 
	Thursday. Usual studies for the rest of the week. JOP161
	test sometime during the week.
	
UVCS:   Comet observations and synoptic on Monday and Tuesday. 
	Coronal hole study and synoptics on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.
	Streamer study and synoptics over the weekend.

LASCO:  C2/C3 synoptics, JOP159 Wednesday - Friday, comet observations
	through Friday. Comet observations mean half resolution C2 images, 
	fewer C2 images, and fewer EIT images.

EIT:    195 CME watch and synoptics, JOP159 Wednesday - Friday, bakeout
	begins on Friday.

MDI:    Full disk and high resolution dopplergrams for continuous.

TRACE:  Comet observations on Tuesday, JOP161 test, full disk mosaics 
	over the weekend.
