From Michi NISHIOKA <nishioka at nict.go.jp>.

The 11th CAWSES-II TG4 newsletter is issued. It can be downloaded from the CAWSES-II Wiki page at http://www.cawses.org/wiki/images/8/8b/TG4_newsletter_issue11.pdf

In this issue, the following articles are included;

  • Article 1: Imaging observation of the Earth’s upper atmosphere from the international space station by ISS-IMAP (Dr. Akinori Saito, Japan)
  • Article 2: Gravity Wave Modeling in the Mesosphere, Thermosphere and Ionosphere (Dr. Michael Hickey, USA)
  • Highlights on Young Scientists: Airglow imaging of mesospheric and

ionospheric dynamics (Dr. Viswanathan Lakshmi Narayanan)

  • Short News: International CAWSES-II Symposium (Dr. Kazuo Shiokawa, Japan)
  • List of upcoming meetings

The purpose of this newsletter is to make more communications among scientists related to the CAWSES-II Task Group 4 (particularly between those of the atmosphere and the ionosphere). The editors would like to invite you to submit the following articles to the TG4 newsletter. Our newsletter has four categories of the articles:

  1. Articles: ~500 words and four figures (maximum)-----on campaign, ground observations, satellite observations, modeling, workshop/conference/symposium report, etc
  2. Highlights on young scientists: ~200 words and two figures-----on his/him own work related to CAWSES-TG4
  3. Short news: ~100 words-----announcements of campaign, workshop, etc
  4. List of planned workshop

Category 2 (Highlights on young scientists) helps both young scientists and TG4 members to know each other. Please contact the editors for recommendation of young scientists who are willing to write an article on this category.

Your suggestions and comments on this newsletter are also very welcome.

Editor of CAWSES-II TG4 newsletter, Michi Nishioka (nishioka at nict.go.jp)


(2) 26–31 August 2013, IAGA, Merida, Mexico, http://www.iaga2013.org.mx/ - abstract deadline extended from 13 to 21 April online at http://www.iaga2013.org.mx/

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

From Bodo.Reinisch at Digisonde.com.

The ionosonde has 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.

Convener: Bodo W. Reinisch, Bodo.Reinisch@Digisonde.com
Co-Conveners: Mangalathayil Abdu, abdu.manga@gmail.com and Gordon James, gordon.james@crc.gc.ca

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


(2) 26–31 August 2013, IAGA, Merida, Mexico, http://www.iaga2013.org.mx/ - abstract deadline extended from 13 to 21 April online at http://www.iaga2013.org.mx/

  • (b) J7 "Low-latitude amosphere/ionosphere"

From Mamoru Yamamoto <yamamoto at rish.kyoto-u.ac.jp>.

Dear Colleagues,

IAGA 2012 Assembly is scheduled on August 26-31, 2013. http://www.iaga2013.org.mx/ It's held at Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.

We are organizing a session J7 Div. II/III "Low Latitude Atmosphere- ionosphere Coupling Processes and Responses to Forcing from Lower Atmosphere and Magnetosphere" Range of interest of this session is wide. We would like to encourage you to submit pepers. Abstract submission is extended until April 21st. Please prepare and go.

Convener: Mamoru Yamamoto, RISH, Kyoto Univ., Japan
Co-Convener: Mangalathayil A. Abdu, INPE, Brazil


(3) Opportunities for Graduate Student Research within the “Institute of Space and Atmospheric Studies”, University of Saskatchewan, Canada.


From alan.manson at usask.ca

The availability and acquisition of atmospheric data-archives for the lower and middle atmosphere [0-100km], for 3 solar cycle years 1980-2012, allows characterization of the thermal and dynamical states of the Northern Hemisphere. Research interests focus upon linkages between the dominant Heat Engines of the Equatorial Region [ENSO, QBO, NAO and MJO] and the dominant dynamical-thermal feature of the higher and Arctic latitudes…the Polar Vortex. Understanding of processes including solar-terrestrial, atmospheric and oceanic influences will be involved. Collaborations with colleagues in Scandinavia, Europe, Russia, China and Japan are part of our Research Methodology; as does engagement with the activities of CAWSES-II SCOSTEP

Successful candidates will work within a vibrant Institute, which has ownership or access to significant remote sensing systems [Radars, Satellites; Global Models with Data Assimilation, related Archives]. The career path of our Grads will include opportunities to meet and work with other students across Canada, as well as other Professors/Scientists from Canadian and International Institutions. Please send a letter of Introduction and Interests, along with CV, to Professor A.H. Manson, ISAS, USask, Canada: alan.manson@usask.ca
