(a) SA11: Heliosphere-Atmosphere Coupling and Climate.


From: Cora Randall <randall@lasp.colorado.edu>

Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract for the 2010 Fall AGU meeting, in Session SA11: Heliosphere-Atmosphere Coupling and Climate. A description of the session is given below. Invited authors include Lesley Gray, Janet Kozyra, David Siskind, and Anne Smith. This promises to be an exciting session of broad, interdisciplinary interest, and we hope that you will be able to attend.

The meeting will be held in San Francisco, California, USA, from 13-17 December 2010 (see http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm10/). Abstracts are due by Thursday, 2 September, 23:59 EDT.

Sincerely, Session SA11 Co-Conveners (Xiaohua Fang, Charles Jackman, Cora Randall, Stanley Solomon)

Session SA11: Heliosphere-Atmosphere Coupling and Climate Session Description: In recent decades increased attention has been placed on the influence of energetic particle and solar forcing on atmospheric coupling. Nevertheless, a solid mechanistic understanding of the pathways by which this forcing affects climate from the thermosphere to the surface is elusive. Likewise, the influence of tropospheric change on the upper atmosphere response to heliophysical variability is highly uncertain. This session invites presentations on the Earth’s atmospheric response to geomagnetic and solar forcing, including observational and modeling studies of both chemical and dynamical effects. Emphasis is on the processes by which heliophysical forcing is communicated throughout different atmospheric regions, and potential climate feedbacks.

Fall AGU Meeting, San Francisco, CA, 13-17 December 2010. Abstracts due 2 Sep at http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm10/.

GC29: Solar Spectral Irradiance and Long-Term Solar Variability: Observations and Implications

Description: Observations of the spectrally resolved solar irradiance (SSI) now extend over epochs that are long enough to identify the amplitude and phase of solar variability as a function of wavelength. This variability impacts the entire atmosphere, ozone and climate system. Long-term data records are often composites from several instruments or proxies. The methods of combining records and their uncertainties must be well understood to make valid comparisons on solar cycle timescales. We solicit papers on the measurement of SSI, the methods of producing composite time series, and the implications and impacts that SSI variations have on the atmosphere, climate, and near space environment.

We encourage all members of the CEDAR community to contribute to this session on the atmospheric response to solar spectral irradiance changes. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact any of the conveners listed below.

Thanks!

Marty Snow (snow@lasp.colorado.edu), Rodney Viereck, Bill McClintock, and Erik Richard


(2) 17-19 May 2011 in Alexandria, Virginia, USA, 13th International Ionospheric Effects Symposium (IES2011) "Bridging the gap between applications and research involving ionospheric & space weather disciplines"


From John M. Goodman (jm_good@cox.net).

IES2011 - A triennial symposium inaugurated in 1975 -

Dear IES Friends and Colleagues:

IES2011 is scheduled for May 17-19, 2011 in Alexandria, Virginia, an historic town near Washington DC. Ionospheric Effects Symposia have been held in Alexandria since 1975, and IES2011 is the thirteenth in the series. Please visit the symposium web site for details (http://www.ies2011.com). IES2011 offers an opportunity for scientists, engineers, and program managers to review current activities and solutions to system impacts of ionospheric phenomena and space weather events. Current sponsors include the Office of Naval Research and URSI. There are numerous Federal agency affiliates.

You are cordially invited to submit a paper abstract/title to the organizers of IES2011, intended for Oral presentation and/or Poster presentation at the symposium. Paper submission and early registration forms are available from the site.

The following are some sample topics:

  • Space-Weather and ionospheric effects on telecommunication and satellite systems
  • Current solar cycle phenomena and impact on operational systems
  • Modeling, forecasting, and prediction systems
  • Ionospheric sounder methods and measurements
  • Multi-Sensor contributions to the solution of Space-Weather effects on ionospherically-dependent systems
  • Applications of ionospheric tomography
  • Transionospheric effects, including scintillation
  • Ionospheric effects on WAAS and other systems supporting aviation

  • Impact of solar noise bursts and environmental noise on telecommunication and navigation systems
  • Space-Weather program activities having relevance to ionospheric effects on C3I and navigation systems
  • Products and services offered by industry relevant to prediction & forecasting of ionospheric effects
  • Government projects associated with the forecasting and/or mitigation of deleterious effects on national and/or military systems
  • Studies of documented system impacts during major geomagnetic storms and other solar-generated events
  • New Applications & Products for Display and Analysis of Ionospheric and Space-Weather Data

There are a number of special sessions planned. They follow:

  • Special Session on Navigation convened by Patricia Doherty (Boston College)
  • Special Session on Lower Atmospheric Forcing of Electrodynamics and the Ionosphere,convened by Dr. Tim Fuller-Rowell (NOAA-SWPC) and Larisa Goncharenko
  • Special Session on Ionospheric and Space Weather Effects on Telecommunications and Navigation Systems, convened by Dr. Giorgiana De Franceschi (INGV, Rome, Italy) and Dr. Iwona Stanislawska
  • Special Session on Ionospheric sounder methods and measurements: convened by Prof. Bodo Reinisch, UML
  • Special Session on Ionospheric irregularities - science and systems, convened by Prof. Paul Cannon, QinetiQ
  • Special Session: Opinion Forum on Issues Facing Ionospheric & Space Weather Communities, convened by Dr. J.M Goodman, RPSI

(3) 13th International Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy (ISEA13) March 12-17, 2012 and 50th anniversary of the Jicamarca Observatory March 17, Paracas, Peru, First Announcement


From: Jorge L. Chau <jorge.chau@jro.igp.gob.pe>, reply to isea13@jro.igp.gob.pe.

The International Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy (ISEA) is an event organized approximately every three to four years and is a major event in the field of upper atmospheric and ionospheric science. ISEA brings together around 150 scientists from all over the world who are interested in studying the low latitude atmosphere and ionosphere and the coupling with other latitudinal and altitudinal regions.

The 13th International Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy will be held from March 12-17, 2012 at the La Hacienda Bahia Paracas Hotel (http://www.hoteleslahacienda.com/esp/paracas/index_paracas.html), in Paracas-Peru. Preliminary information about ISEA 13 can be found at http://jro.igp.gob.pe/isea13

In addition to marking 50 years since the first ISEA held in Huaychulo, Peru in 1962, ISEA 13 will also celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Jicamarca Radio Observatory (http://jro.igp.gob.pe/50years - web site under construction). The central day for Jicamarca's 50th Anniversary celebration will be immediately after ISEA 13 on Saturday, March 17, 2012 at the Jicamarca Radio Observatory.

If you are interested in participating in ISEA 13 and receiving future announcements please contact us at isea13@jro.igp.gob.pe
