Abstract: The current solar minimum may not be “peculiar” when considered on scales of a century or more. However, the opportunity for discovery yielded by its extended nature, in combination with the abundance of modern observations, cannot be overstated. In this paper, we describe the Whole Heliosphere Interval (WHI), an in-depth study of the Sun–Earth system for a solar rotation in March/April 2008. We discuss how WHI fits within the broader context of the current deep, long, and complex solar minimum.
