Plots are in GSE (geocentric solar ecliptic) coordinates, so Earth is at [0,0], the Sun is at [1,0]. The plot is the projection of the orbit on the ecliptic plane.

3rd orbit in NMP.

Proposed scenario

This orbit has been exercised during the SOWG8 PlanningExercise2016_withResults.pptx.

Preliminary proposal in that exercise was the following: TBW

I_DEFAULT outside of RSwindows, L_IS_STIX on inside all RSwindows

MTP7 - South:

Start of the RSW is beyond 0.55AU so we can offpoint with Metis still observing. This fits the requirements of:

We could choose several limb pointings and switch between them during few days.

MTP7 - perihelion:

MTP7 - Perihelion+ North: these 2 concatenated windows could also be used for L_FULL_LRES_MCAD_Coronal-Synoptic SOOP

 

Modelled in SAP v0:

I_DEFAULT outside of RSwindows, L_IS_STIX on inside all RSwindows

MTP7 - South: first 2 days of limb pointing:

  • 1 day R_SMALL_HRES_LCAD_Composition_vs_Height
  • 1 day L_SMALL_HRES_MCAD_Suprathermal_Popul

MTP7 - perihelion: we prefer to model slow wind connection science over eruption watch because of the time in the solar cycle (rising phase) which simplifies slow wind structure and lower chances for eruptions:

MTP7 - north: L_FULL_LRES_MCAD_Coronal-Synoptic throughout RSW
