The continuing analysis of interplanetary shocks and the operation of this
web site is supported by two NASA research grants. I am working with Prof. Cynthia Cattell
(University of Minnesota), who is Principle Investigator of a NASA Solar and Heliospheric Physics
grant "The Microphysics
of Interplanetary Shocks", which aims to compare radio emission and particle velocity
distribution functions with shock properties. I am also working with Dr. Christina
Cohen (Caltech), who is PI of a NASA Living With a Star grant to study particle
acceleration at shocks.
Conversion of derived shock parameters into a format that can be read automatically
by users of the Virtual Heliospheric Observatory is supported by a
VHO grant led by Dr. Adam Szabo of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
