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 last workshop was held in conjunction with the 85th Annual Meeting of The Meteoritical Society in Glasgow (14–19 August 2022, https://www.metsoc2022.com/). Dates of the fourth workshop will be announced soon.
In the third workshop of the series, the main topics were:
- 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 was in the Molema Building, Lillybank Gardens, University of Glasgow campus, Room 308.
