AGCI Workshop Participation
June 12, 2010 to June 17, 2010
Richard Mewaldt graduated from Lawrence University in 1965 and received a Ph.D. in Physics from Washington University in St. Louis in 1971. Since that time he has been employed in the Space Radiation Laboratory of the California Institute of Technology, where he is presently a Senior Research Associate in Physics. His research interests center on spacecraft and balloon-borne measurements of energetic nuclei and electrons accelerated in solar energetic particle events, galactic cosmic rays, the heliosphere, and in the Earth's magnetosphere. This work has focused on studies of elemental and isotopic composition; on the implications of these measurements for energetic particle origin, acceleration, and transport; on solar particle and cosmic-ray impacts on space weather; and on the development of high-resolution instrumentation to extend these measurements. He has been a co-investigator on the NASA missions IMP-7, IMP-8, ISEE-3 (ICE), SAMPEX, and a Guest Investigator on HEAO-3. He is and is currently a co-investigator on STEREO, and the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE), where he is the Mission Scientist, and on Solar Orbiter. He has also been a co-investigator on six balloon-borne instruments that measured cosmic-ray elemental and isotopic composition and cosmic-ray antiprotons.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
What We Do
The Aspen Global Change Institute has been the most prominent place for developing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary dialogues between scientists and practitioners.Guy Brasseur
