HMI_Logo HMI Team Workshop:
Local Helioseismology Pipelines
Stanford University      March 7-9, 2007



The purpose of this workshop is to begin the implementation of those elements of the HMI data analysis pipeline related to production and analysis of data products suitable for the techniques of local helioseismology: ring-diagrams, time-distance, and acoustic holography. Specfically, it is expected that by the end of the workshop, specifications will have been drafted for those pipeline modules required to process HMI Dopplergrams to the various data products associated woth local helioseismology in the HMI Science plan (full-disk, high-resolution, Carrington synoptic, and deep-focus three-dimensional distributions of velocity and sound speed; and a far-side activity index), and specific implementation tasks will have been scheduled and assigned to team members.


Team Reports


Since this is to be a focused workshop rather than a science meeting, we will limit the plenary discussions to the first day, and devote the remainder of the workshop to small task-oriented working groups involving both scientists and support programmers. The first morning will be devoted to a discussion of the scientific issues and division into appropriate working teams; the first afternoon to a tutorial in the use of the JSOC computing infrastructure, and the remaining two days to the work of the actual preparation of the specification documents by the various teams.



The first day's session will be held in the large conference room (102/103) in the new Astrophysics Building at Stanford. Working temas will meet in smaller conference rooms in that building and, if necessary, in the HEPL facilities as well.


Participation in the workshop is limited to those scientists from Stanford, and the co-Investigator teams who specifically expect to contribute to elements of the local helioseismology pipelines, along with identified members of science teams at cooperating institutions who likewise plan to contribute to those pipelines. Additionally, programming staff members from Stanford and NSO will attend the workshop to provide support and to work directly with the science team members.

Attendees should be prepared to provide existing relevant codes and documentation to share with working groups. JSOC staff will provide heuristic modules for the tutorial.
