From CSSC chair Dave Hysell (david.hysell at cornell.edu).

on-line final (June 2011) version of "CEDAR The New Dimension, Strategic Vision " From CSSC chair Dave Hysell (david.hysell at cornell.edu).

The CEDAR Science Steering Committee solicits workshop session proposals for the June 24-28 meeting in Boulder, CO DUE FRIDAY MARCH 1 via the workshop proposal form on-line. This is not a hard deadline, but we really encourage conveners to get their proposals in by the end of the following week (by Friday March 8) so the CSSC can organize the workshop sessions.

These sessions should support the goals of the NSF CEDAR program and the theme of the 2013 meeting, which is to identify and address the grand challenges in the science disciplines that fall into the CEDAR domain.

Sessions should address the science priorities in the field of aeronomy and space physics for the upcoming decade described by the recent Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) (see http://sites.nationalacademies.org/ssb/currentprojects/ssb_056864 and the NAS Report in Brief and also the 2013-2022 Decadal Briefing to the CSSC) . Sessions should identify a particular science challenge and outline an approach to meet it. Successful sessions will address 1) how the associated questions will be addressed, 2) what resources exist, are planned, or are needed, and 3) how progress should be measured. The justification for the sessions should also relate to the 2011 (not 2010 as previously stated and linked to) on-line final (June 2011) version of "CEDAR The New Dimension, Strategic Vision " Please see further details in the Guidelines for Workshop Conveners.

Workshop contributors should be apprised of the session goals and encouraged to contribute directly to the effort. Workshop reports will be required within 60 days of the end of the workshop and will be published in the CEDAR Post and archived on their individual workshop pages on the CEDAR wiki for the 2013 CEDAR Workshop.

  • (a) Joint Aeronomy / History Session (J17 Div. II/IDCH) “History of Ionosonde Research”.

From <Bodo.Reinisch at Digisonde.com>.

The ionosonde have been the work horse of ionospheric research for many decades. From the discovery of the ionospheric layers and their diurnal and seasonal variations to ionospheric dynamics and spread F, ionosondes have provided the basic measurements. Over time the ionosonde itself underwent a steady development from a relatively simple analog instrument to a highly sophisticated digital radar system, and the initial ground-based observations extended to satellite borne topside observations. We solicit papers on significant ionospheric research with ionosondes from ground and satellites and on the development of ionospheric sounders.

It is planned to publish selected papers in a special issue of the open access journal “History of Geo- and Space Sciences” (Copernicus Publications).
