New Gamma-ray Transient Network Science Analysis Group

Combining information from multiple gamma-ray monitors led to the discovery and proof of astrophysical origin of gamma-ray bursts, the discovery of soft gamma-ray repeaters and aided their identification as magnetars, and the discovery and study of magnetar giant flares. The InterPlanetary Network (IPN), which has operated for decades, continues the study of these objects and could play a key role in observations of high energy counterparts to gravitational waves, fast radio bursts, optically-discovered relativistic transients, neutrinos, and more. The Gamma-ray Transient Network Science Analysis Group (GTN SAG) has been created to explore the modern scientific uses of gamma-ray detection networks, to investigate potential modernization and expansion of the IPN, and to consider the need of continuing the all-sky monitoring capabilities into the new future. The intention is to deliver a report on these topics in approximately six months. Additional details, including the full charter, are available on the SAG's webpage. Instructions on how to participate will also be posted to the SAG’s webpage.

Questions or interested in participating? Contact Eric Burns (Chair, erickayserburns@gmail.com) or Michael Coughlin (co-Chair, cough052@umn.edu).
