The main task of the AOGS/RAC is to promote the participation of the Asian scientific community in AOGS and regional cooperation. We are therefore initiating the organization of a working group on coastal zone risk mitigation and management (CZWG) because this is going to become a mounting issue for many Asian nations with the deepening climate crisis. At this point in time, we have scientists from China, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, and Vietnam joining.
At this point in time, except for the fact that it is an informal group, the organization and agenda of CZWG are still being defined. But the main goals can be supposed to be: (1) to exchange information, (2) to heighten the sensitivity to coastal zone protection by scientific analyses and discussions, (3) to activate governmental/intra-governmental activities in some urgent areas, and (4) to educate and reach out to the general public.
The charter of CZWG:
The purpose of the Low Latitude Ionospheric Research Working Group (LLWG) is to connect different research groups in Asia who are interested in this area to exchange information and collaborate on certain observational campaigns.
With the increasing solar activity in Cycle 25, the corresponding space weather effects must become more and more interesting and important. The ground-based scientific infrastructures and facilities in this region can conduct coordinated observations in the ASEAN sector in cooperation with satellite measurements. Then, these data can be used to monitor hurricanes, lightning and tsunamis, etc, and their impacts on the ionosphere.
From the point of view of RAC, this working group will be very useful in developing regional scientific networks and capacity building. If successful, we can extend the collaboration to the low-latitude regions around the world with this working group as the main component.
