URSI-GA 2014, Session G06: Modeling the Geospace Environment

Abstracts due 15 February at http://www.chinaursigass.com/

Conveners: M. Förster (mfo@gfz-potsdam.de), A.A. Namgaladze (namgaladze@mstu.edu.ru, namgaladze@yandex.ru)

Summary: This session is devoted to the latest achievements in the area of the Earth’s atmosphere-ionosphere-plasmasphere-magnetosphere system modeling including its electrodynamics. The coupling processes of interactions between various regions of the geospace environment will be considered using modern physical-numerical models. The problems of the inputs, initial and boundary conditions of the models will be discussed as well as results of their validation via comparisons between the models and observations of such upper atmosphere parameters as electron density and total electron content, thermosphere mass density and winds, electric fields and plasma drifts, and so forth. This session will foster the collaboration among modelers, data providers and research communities in order to improve mutual understanding and state-of-the-art data analyses of geospace missions like CHAMP (CHAllenging Minisatellite Payload), Swarm and others.
