This SOOP is inspired by science goal 1 of 2.3 in the MPS document and is also consistent with the second part of 2.1 (apart from the number of physical quantities)

Default SOOP duration: Several days

Pointing requirements: Poles

Triggers: disabled

SOOP Coordinators

TBD PHI coordinator, Andrzej Fludra


SOOP design to address polar magnetic field objectives that don't necessarily rely on the the highest resolution and cadence PHI data, nor all five physical parameters that PHI can return. The rest of the remote sensing observations provide supporting data.

PHIPHI_magnetograph_HRT_2 (HRT), 2-5 mins cadence, no binningFull FoV, 2-5 minute cadence, 3 quantities, no binning

Keep defaults for now, could potentially match PHI cadence
