Proposed SOOP Coordinators


D. Spadaro, A. Vourlidas, A. Giunta, D. Williams



This SOOP is designed to be used as a whole- or half-orbit Synoptic campaign that scans the Sun from one high latitude to the other (therefore mainly to be used later in the NMP at min inclination of 15º, i.e. orbit 3 or later). Close to the higher latitude windows, we get a radial sweep at nearly constant latitude for in-situ.

This SOOP resembles very much the L_FULL_LRES_MCAD_Coronal-Synoptic but this time SPICE is necessary as well.

We could possibly schedule this SOOP after every Venus GAM.

Default SOOP duration: 10 days

Pointing requirements: mainly disk centre

Triggers: only IS triggers active

EUIFSI Synoptic mode (S) with FSI10 min cadence


One of METIS standard modes to observe large scale coronal structures: GLOBAL or LT-CONFIG
+ CMEOBS whenever a CME is triggered

Model: LTCONFIG (cadence 20mins) and 3 x 1 hour CMEOBS

CME Watch On
could do a slight offpoint without switching metis off, e.g. to poles during RSW1+3 
PHIFDT in general though HRT could be high resolution, medium cadence (TBC) 

at higher latitudes, point to the poles for polar magnetic field observations.

Currently modelled as HI_SYN_NEAR

SPICE scans many latitudes during the SOOP : large swath around the sun

magnetic field spiral less curved at higher latitudes:
SPICE naturally closer to connection point

Use observation called SPICE_CME_COMP in modelling.

  1. In the list of SAP objectives, I would add: (CME evolution) (How does the Sun's magnetic field link into space?)
    4.2     (Properties of the magnetic field at high solar latitudes)
