Ateneo Physics Faculty Dr. Quirino Sugon Jr attends the 2015 UN/Japan
Workshop on Space Weather

Last 2-6 March 2015, Dr. Quirino Sugon Jr, Assistant Professor of the
Department of Physics, attended the United Nations/Japan Worshop on Space
Weather in Fukuoka, Japan. This 5-day workshop at Luigans Hotel in Fukuoka
is about Science and Data Products from ISWI instruments. ISWI is the
International Space Weather Initiative, which was part of the 2010-2012
workplan of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer
Space (UNCOPUOS). ISWI is a collaboration of different instrument arrays
for the understanding of the impact of solar activity on Earth. One of
these instrument networks is the MAGDAS (Magnetic Data Acquisition System)
network, which consists of 72 magnetometers worldwide, with 6 of them in
the Philippines (TGG, LGZ, MUT, CEB, CDO, and DAV). In 2012, ISWI led to
the creation of ICSWSE (International Center for Space Weather Science and
Education) in Kyushu University. The ICSWSE subcenter is at the Ionosphere
Research Building of Manila Observatory. As the program head of Manila
Obsevatory’s Upper Atmosphere Dynamics program (UAD) , Dr. Sugon also
coordinates the activities of the ICSWSE subcenter and those of the other
MAGDAS stations in the Philippines.
