RFI Response Number   First Author   Response Title   Summary Description


36   Chu, Xinzhao, et al.   Space Lidar Mission to Study Middle and Upper Atmosphere Dynamics and Chemistry   Proposes a mission to make high-resolution temperature, wind, and Na-density measurements in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere region and to study the upper atmosphere chemistry, structure, and dynamics, especially the impact of gravity waves, using space Na Doppler lidar.
37   Chu, Xinzhao, and J. Thayer   Whole Atmosphere LIDAR for Whole Atmosphere Study   Proposes a mission to profile wind and temperature through the whole atmosphere from ground to 120 km with superlative accuracy and with whole atmosphere lidar.
38   Chua, Damien H., et al.   Geospace Dynamics Imager: A Mission Concept for Heliospheric and Magnetospheric Imaging and Space Weather Forecasting   Proposes a mission to provide the first direct, global images of the solar wind-magnetosphere system with the Geospace Dynamics Imager.
39   Chutjian, Ara, et al.   Laboratory Solar Physics from Molecular to Highly-Charged Ions: Meeting Future Space Observations of the Solar Plasma and Solar Wind   Describes an addition to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory facility to provide a compact storage ring with the new, required measurement capabilities.
40   Cirtain, Jonathan W., et al.   The High-Latitude Solar-C International Collaboration: Observing the Polar Regions of the Sun and Heliosphere   Proposes a mission to fly a focused suite of instruments designed to study the solar interior flows (by helioseismology), surface magnetic fields, transition region, and extended corona from an orbit inclined at least 40 degrees to the ecliptic plane.
41   Clarke, John T., et al.   White Paper on Comparative Planetary Exospheres   Recommends the observation of planetary and satellite exospheres by enhanced ground-based and new Earth-orbiting telescopic instruments.
42   Claudepierre, Seth G., et al.   A CubeSat Constellation to Study Magnetospheric Ultra-Low Frequency Pulsations   Proposes a mission to constrain the azimuthal mode number spectrum of magnetospheric ultralow-frequency pulsations.
43   CoBabe-Ammann, Emily, et al.   The Importance of Student Instrument Programs in the Workforce Development in Solar and Space Physics   Details how student instrument programs attract, retain, and move students through the higher education pipeline into graduate studies and the scientific and engineering workforce.
44   Codrescu, Mihail   Data Assimilation for the Thermosphere and Ionosphere   Develops global data assimilation schemes using coupled thermosphere ionosphere models and large amounts of diverse data.
45   Cohen, Christina M.S., et al.   Protecting Science Mission Investment: Balancing the Funding Profile for Data Analysis Programs   Addresses the necessary balance between data analysis funds and support for guest investigator programs.
46   Colgate, Stirling A.   Experiments to Demonstrate Solar and Astrophysical Dynamos   Explains how experiments have shown that turbulence leads primarily to enhanced resistive diffusion and not a dynamo.
47   Conde, Mark G.   Constructively Growing the Sounding Rocket Program: A Technology Development Line of Sounding Rocket Launches   Proposes that a competitive line of sounding rocket launches be added to the existing scientifically competed program.
