1999 Fall Meeting: Press conferences and special events

the Solar Wind (Almost) Disappeared
Monday morning. The day was May 11 this year, and data suggest that the solar wind dropped to almost zero. This was accompanied by a rare auroral phenomenon, in which Earth's entire polar cap, not just a ring, glowed. The whole phenomenon has been described as a window to the corona's electrons.

The Latest News From Mars
Monday noon. Pick up lunch in the Press Room and head into the Briefing Room for this perennial favorite. You will see and hear new results from Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Polar Lander (which has not yet landed), and its Deep Space 2 probes of the Martian subsurface.

The Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX)
Monday afternoon. The Indian Ocean is a unique natural laboratory in which to observe the effects of manmade aerosols (airborne particles) and other factors on climate. A multidisciplinary and multinational group of scientists undertook intensive on site investigations early this year. This is the first report of their findings.

Way Down Under: New Clues to Antarctica
Monday afternoon. New tools and technology are helping scientists take a good look at strange features and puzzling behaviors on the frozen continent. These include giant ice streams, some dynamic and some placid, and snow dunes that stay in place despite fierce winds. It all affects global climate.

Solar Moss Discovered
Tuesday morning. Moss discovered on the Sun! Well, not exactly, but scientists using the TRACE spacecraft have discovered a mixture of coronal chromospheric gases at the base of the corona, and they have named it "moss." Solar moss is anything but static, and its discovery changes our understanding of how the base of the corona operates.

Sudden Volcanic Catastrophes Threaten Growing Populations
Tuesday afternoon. Stratovolcanoes are found near many highly populated areas. New findings will be reported on the risk that they may suddenly collapse, even wi
