SCOSTEP Becomes WDS Partner Member


On the occasion of the SCOSTEP–WDS Workshop on Global Data Activities for the Study of Solar–Terrestrial Variability, Dr Nat Gopalswamy, President of ICSU's Scientific Committee on Solar–Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP), and Dr Mustapha Mokrane, Executive Director of the ICSU World Data System IPO, signed a Letter of Agreement recognizing SCOSTEP as a WDS Partner Member. This formal arrangement will strengthen the ongoing collaborations between the two bodies, in particular those dealing with data challenges and opportunities of the VarSITI (Variability of the Sun and Its Terrestrial Impact) programme. It will also allow SCOSTEP to formally participate in WDS Members' Fora and for WDS to become a SCOSTEP Bureau Member after final approval by the SCOSTEP Assembly.
