(2) Call for paper presentation CEDAR workshop 2012 on thermosphere-ionosphere coupling and the development of irregularities.


From Narayan Chapagain (chapagai at illinois.edu).

Date & Time/Venue: June 26, Tuesday (1:30-3:30 PM) - Anasazi N and June 29, Friday (10:00-12:00 PM) - Zia

Session Title: Thermosphere-ionosphere coupling and the development of irregularities

Conveners:

  • Dr. Narayan P. Chapagain, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL, chapagai@illinois.edu
  • Dr. Jonathan J. Makela, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL jmakela@illinois.edu
  • Dr. John W. Meriwether, Clemson University, SC, meriwej@clemson.edu

Dear Colleagues: We welcome your papers presentations in our session of CEDAR workshop 2012 on titled “Thermosphere-ionosphere coupling and the development of irregularities”. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated.

Description: Knowledge of the coupling between the thermosphere and ionosphere (TI) associated with the F-region dynamo is important for understanding the dynamics and the structure of the low-latitude F-region ionosphere and thermosphere. Several ongoing ground and space based experiments providing observations of the TI at low-latitudes provide a new opportunity to study the coupling between the neutral atmosphere and the ionosphere and how these interactions can lead to the development of irregularities. This workshop solicits contributions to address the most recent experimental results from both ground- and space-based observations. Also of interest would be contributions describing simulation and modeling results related to such TI coupling. Papers describing the development of ionospheric irregularities as well as effects caused by the coupling between the ionosphere and neutral atmosphere would certainly be welcomed.

Thank you very much.

Best regards, Dr. Narayan Chapagain, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana IL 61801


(3) Nominations for the AGU Basu Award in Sun-Earth System Science due May 15.


From David Hysell <david.hysell at cornell.edu>.

The Space Physics and Aeronomy (SPA) Section of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) is seeking nominations for the Sunanda and Santimay Basu Award in Sun-Earth Systems Science. This award is presented annually to honor an individual young scientist from a developing nation for making outstanding contributions to research in Sun-Earth Systems Science that further the understanding of both plasma physical processes and their applications for the benefit of society. The award is open to scientists who received their Ph.D. degree after 1 June 2005 and currently live and work in developing nations. Consideration is to be given to candidates who have overcome obstacles in attaining their research objectives.

The Space Physics and Aeronomy Section will invite the recipient to present a paper at AGU's Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California. Travel funds and living expenses will be provided to attend the meeting, where the recipient will also receive a certificate of appreciation and three years' membership to AGU. The award will be presented at the SPA dinner, for which the awardee will receive a complimentary ticket. The awardee will also be announced in Eos.

Nominations should be prepared by an AGU member or other geoscientist who is knowledgeable of the candidate's qualifications and include the following information:

  • nominator's name and title, address and contact numbers;
  • nominee's name and title, institutional affiliation, and address;
  • a statement (not to exceed 2 pages) of the action(s) or achievement(s) for which the candidate is nominated;
  • two letters of support from AGU members or from other recognized geoscientists belonging to institutions other than that of the nominee;
  • a curriculum vitae (not to exceed 3 pages).

A list of previous recipients of the award can be found at:

(4) Call for papers: JASTP special issue - Layered Phenomena in the Mesopause Region due 21 May.


From Brentha Thurairajah <brenthat at vt.edu>.

Submissions are now being accepted for a special issue of the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics, highlighting recent advances in our understanding of ice layers in the region of the mesopause and the environment in which they form. In addition to the papers presented at the 10th International Workshop on the Layered Phenomena in the Mesopause Region in Blacksburg, Virginia on 24-27 October 2011, we invite all relevant papers from the community.

The submission website for the journal is located at: http://ees.elsevier.com/atp/default.asp and remember to select "10th LPMR" as the 'Article Type' in the submission process.

Deadline for submission: 21 May 2012
