(1) On-line registration open for Santa Fe 2009 CEDAR Workshop 28 June - 2 July


On-line registration is now open for the 2009 CEDAR Workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico starting with the Student Workshop on Sunday 28 June and ending on Thursday 02 July. Register on the CEDAR wiki site at: http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu Click on 'Workshops', '2009 Workshop', 'Register', and finally on '2009 CEDAR Workshop On-Line Registration'. There is a brief survey on the distribution of the CEDAR Post, the CEDAR Database, and recent (<10y) graduates, where we especially solicit input from faculty advisors on their graduates who have left the CEDAR community.

New registrants will be assigned wiki logins (FName or first initial, last name) so they can upload their presentations or whatever. CEDAR Database users or previous CEDAR Workshop attendees since 2007 already have a CEDAR wiki login. The wiki login list is under 'Toolbox', 'Special pages', and 'User list'.

The deadline for potential conveners to propose an individual CEDAR workshop is Monday, March 23. Click on 'submit descrptions' in '2009 Workshop'. You must login before you can see the workshop submission form.


(2) Position in Space Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Lowell From: Paul Song (Paul_Song at uml.edu) See also http://umlcar.uml.edu/ and http://www.uml.edu/hr/jobpostings/.


From: Paul Song (Paul_Song at uml.edu)

The Department of Environmental, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EEAS) and the Center for Atmospheric Research (UMLCAR) seek a senior level individual to fill a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. The successful candidate must have a proven record of significant publications and funded research in the areas of UMLCAR's current activities, and the capability to assume a leadership role in the Center's research and operations. UMLCAR is actively engaged in radio science research including ground and space-based instrumentation, and in exploration and modeling of space plasmas, especially the ionosphere and magnetosphere (http://umlcar.uml.edu/).

The candidate will be expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The University invites applications from candidates with a Ph.D., at least 5 years of relevant experience, teaching experience, and a record of leadership and successful grants activity.

The Department anticipates filling the position in Fall 2009 although this is contingent upon the timing and availability of funding. Rank and salary commensurate with qualifications. For complete job description and application deadlines, please visit the UML HR website at http://www.uml.edu/hr/jobpostings/.

TO APPLY: Applicants should send a CV, list of publications, current research and research interests, and the names and addresses of three references to: Chair of the Search Committee, Environmental, Earth, and Atmospheric Science Department, c/o Center for Atmospheric Research, University of Massachusetts Lowell, 600 Suffolk Street, Lowell, MA 01854.

The University of Massachusetts is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Title IX, H/V, ADA 1990 Employer, and Executive Order 11246, 41 CFR60-741 4, 41 CRF60-250 4, 41CRF60-1 40 and 41 CFR60-1,4 are hereby incorporated.

(a) DC01: ICDC symposium on atmospheric coupling processes in the equatorial region


From S Gurubaran (gurubara@iigs.iigm.res.in)

Convective processes occurring in the equatorial atmosphere play important roles in the various upper layers of the atmosphere owing to a spectrum of waves they generate at lower levels. A variety of field experiments conducted over Indonesia, India and Brazil has demonstrated the role of tropical convection in the dynamical coupling of atmospheric and ionospheric regions over the tropics. Radio occultation experiments performed on LEO satellites have yielded useful information on tropospheric and stratospheric gravity waves originating from various sources. A number of rocket experiments performed in India have led to quantification of gravity wave contributions to the middle atmospheric SAO and QBO. GCMs have begun to address gravity wave effects by resolving them in high spatial and temporal scales. This symposium aims to address the recent advances made in our understanding of the generation and propagation characteristics of small-, intermediate-scale and large-scale wave motions generated in the lower and middle atmosphere. Papers that deal with electrical processes of lower atmospheric origin that produce noticeable transient effects in the mesosphere are also solicited.
