Updated Draft Programme Published for Workshop #3 on Fireballs and their Detection
Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August, University of Glasgow
Convened by: Günter Kargl (Space Research Institute, Austrian Academy of Sciences; ), Ute Amerstorfer (Space Research Institute, Austrian Academy of Sciences) and Detlef Koschny (European Space Agency).
In cooperation with Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure (RI), a series of four workshops bringing together different networks of fireball observers and machine-learning experts are being arranged over two years. This series is aimed at: i) the development of a common data format and/or common entry point to the observational data of the different fireballs networks, and ii) machine-learning science cases for meteor observations.
The next workshop will be held in conjunction with the 85th Annual Meeting of The Meteoritical Society in Glasgow (14–19 August 2022, https://www.metsoc2022.com/).
This is the third workshop of the series, and its main topics are:
- continue discussing and exploring the possibilities of a common entry point to all data, reports on recent activities;
- continue discussing Lunar impact flashes, observation networks and software;
- Introduce topics of meteorite recovery, strewn field estimation and dark flight calculation;
- continue discussing and identifying machine learning science cases for fireball observations.
The workshop venue is in the Molema Building, Lillybank Gardens, University of Glasgow campus, Room 308. This is five minutes´ walk from the welcome reception of the Meteoritical Society conference, which will be held in the Hunterian Museum of the University of Glasgow, starting at 5 pm.
