    • Second call for the 6th VERSIM workshop

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

Abstract submission and registrations are now open for the 6th VERSIM workshop which will take place in January next year 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 6th VERSIM workshop is sponsored by the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) Commission H and G, the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), and the University of Otago.
