Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to submit an abstract to the forthcoming 2012 Fall AGU session session number SA-003, titled "Do we Understand E and F-region Ion-Neutral Momentum Coupling?" The emphasis of this session is on how momentum coupling between ions and neutrals affects the dynamics of both of these fluids, including all spatial scales and all geographic locations.

Please note that the deadline for all submissions is 8 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT. The abstract submission site is at:

http://agu-fm12.abstractcentral.com

A detailed description of the SA-003 session, and additional information, is available online at:

From Odile de la Beaujardiere (Odile.DeLaBeaujardiere at kirtland.af.mil) and Anthea Coster (ajc at haystack.mit.edu).

We would like to encourage you to submit an abstract to the AGU session "SA013. The Equatorial Ionosphere: Drivers and Coupling Processes"

This session is where we expect to see C/NOFS papers and more generally, papers related to the equatorial ionosphere, irregularities, equatorial plasma bubbles, their drivers, new missions and new sensors.

The session conveners are Anthea J Coster, Endawoke Yizengaw, Rebecca L Bishop and Russell Stoneback

The session description is: "The equatorial ionosphere is one of the best examples illustrating the complex interactions between the various geospace regions. We welcome papers that illustrate how the low-latitude electron density profiles and scintillation, as well as their drivers, are controlled by the solar wind, the magnetosphere, the thermosphere and the lower atmosphere. In order to improve our ability to unravel the variability of the equatorial ionosphere, this session will focus on models and observations illustrating how these interactions vary as a function of solar activity, longitude and season."


(2) 8-12 July 2013, Beacon Satellite Symposium , Bath, UK.


From patricia.doherty at bc.edu.

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 2013 Beacon Satellite Symposium will be held at the Assembly Rooms in Bath, UK on July 8-12, 2013. Cathryn Mitchell of the University of Bath had graciously offered to be the local host this symposium.

This meeting will provide a unique opportunity for ionospheric scientists from all over the world to meet and collaborate on the ionospheric effects on radio propagation. This meeting is primarily sponsored by the Beacon Satellite Group of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) Commission G. The Beacon Satellite Group is interdisciplinary, servicing science, research, application and engineering interests. These interests include all aspects of satellite signals observed on the ground and by receivers on-board satellites.

The Beacon Satellite Studies Group was originally formed in 1972, with the first Symposium at Graz, Austria. Symposia have continued to meet at two to four year intervals with meetings held at various worldwide locations. From the beginning, the two main areas of interest in Beacon Satellite Studies have been Ionospheric Electron Content and Scintillation. With more recent developments in ionospheric tomography, assimilation models, occultation techniques, distributed ground and space based arrays of ionospheric measurements, international IHY and IPY activities, space weather and satellite based navigation and communication systems; these studies have gained new momentum and perspectives.\

We invite you to consider attending this distinctive symposium. Details on the abstract submittal process together with all the other organizational details will soon be listed on the Beacon Satellite web site at: www.bc.edu/beacon. At this time, we anticipate an abstract deadline of 15 December 2012. Please be sure to check our website frequently for further announcements.

It is our intent to assist with costs for a limited number of students and attendees from developing countries. The total level of assistance will depend on sponsorship funding. Information on applications for assistance will also be available soon on our web site.

We sincerely hope to see you in Bath for the 18th International Beacon Satellite Symposium.

Yours sincerely,

Patricia Doherty, Cathryn Mitchell and P.V.S. Rama Rao Chairs of BSS2013
