From Susanne Demaree <sdemaree@ucar.edu>.

This program matches early career PhDs with experienced scientists at U.S. research institutions. Hosting scientists mentor the postdoctorates during their two-year fellowships. The goal of the program is to train the next generation of researchers needed for the emerging field of Heliophysics.

  • (a) "Space Weather Events and Assimilative Models" special session.

From Anthea Coster <ajc@haystack.mit.edu>.

Dear Colleagues:

Please consider submitting an abstract to our Special Session "Space Weather Events and Assimilative Models" at the upcoming URSI National Radio Science Meeting, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO, January 9-12, 2013.

Space Weather Events and Assimilative Models Special Session
Convenors: Attila Komjathy <Attila.Komjathy@jpl.nasa.gov> and Anthea Coster <ajc@haystack.mit.edu>.

The deadline for abstract submission is Friday, Sept 21, 2012.

ABSTRACT Accurate forecasts of ionospheric conditions can be used to mitigate or avoid the adverse effects of ionospheric disturbances on communication and navigation systems during space weather events. Despite improvements in modeling and increased quality and amounts of data, nowcasting and forecasting remain difficult. This session intends to combine a review of current space weather events and their implications, with a review of the latest developments in ionospheric specification and forecasting. Papers are solicited on recent experimental observing techniques, theoretical results of modeling, and the combination of data and models into assimilative systems. Contributions on analysis of filtering methods, data processing techniques for new applications and observing systems are encouraged.

The web page http://www.nrsmboulder.org/ contains the general conference information, including abstract submission instructions and guidelines.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Attila Komjathy and Anthea Coster
