The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is pleased to announce an opportunity for the Canadian solar-terrestrial science and space weather forecasting communities to participate in Geospace Observatory (GO) Canada. The GO Canada program aims to advance our knowledge of Canadian geospace and, in doing so, mitigate the impact of disturbances in geospace on the daily lives of Canadians. Through this Announcement of Opportunity (AO), the CSA intends to fund a number of projects that will observe geospace above Canada and enhance Canadian space missions and projects, most notably the CASSIOPE/e-POP mission, the Canadian Electric Field Instruments (CEFI) on the European Space Agency (ESA's) Swarm mission, and the ground-based observatories that comprise part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA's) THEMIS mission. The AO is available at the link below.
