The PENGUIn Team will investigate in depth, from Antarctica and nominally conjugate regions in the Arctic, the multi-scale electrodynamic system that comprises the space environment of Planet Earth. Four science topics, key components of the challenges outlined in the Decadal Survey, are important to the investigations in this proposal: substorms, polar cap physics, cusp phenomena, and radiation belt dynamics. Cutting-edge science on these critical topics will be accomplished by deploying state-of-the-art instruments strategically and in unprecedented quantity in the Antarctic.
