From Craig Rodger (crodger at on 15 February, 2013.

    • First call for the 6th VERSIM workshop,

20-23 January 2014, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand

Please be aware that in about 1 year the 6th VERSIM workshop will take place in Dunedin, New Zealand. VERSIM (VLF/ELF Remote Sensing of the Ionosphere and Magnetosphere) is a joint working group of IAGA and URSI, made up of researchers interested in studying the behaviour of the magnetosphere and ionosphere by means of ELF (300 Hz - 3 kHz) and VLF (3-30 kHz) radio waves, both naturally and artificially generated.

The working group is broadly interested in ELF/VLF waves, whether they are used as remote sensing probes or affect other physical processes. The VERSIM working group topics typically include magnetosphere and plasmasphere studies, wave-particle interactions in the radiation belts, sub-ionospheric sensing of the D-region, lightning and sprites.

The workshop website is

The 6th VERSIM workshop is sponsored by URSI Commission H and G and the University of Otago.

If you are interested in attending the 6th VERSIM workshop, or simply wish to gain extra information, please email Craig Rodger ( and he will put you on the announcement list.
