Call for Papers for JGR Special Section "Long-term changes in the stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, and ionosphere"
Submission acceptance begins 10 Sep 2010
Submission deadline is 19 Nov 2010
Guest Editors: John Emmert (john.emmert at nrl.navy.mil), Gufran Beig (beig at tropmet.res.in)
Manuscripts are invited for a joint special section of JGR-Space Physics and JGR-Atmospheres on trends in the middle and upper atmosphere and ionosphere. Papers are welcome that apply all types of observational techniques to determine the long-term changes and trends in the stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, and ionosphere, that have occurred in the past and also to determine the processes behind those changes. Also solicited are contributions which consider the availability, quality and acquisition of various data sets which may be exploited for trend studies, and statistical methods for deriving and validating those trends. Interpretation and attribution of observational results depends heavily on theoretical models and numerical simulations of the trends, and papers dealing with these topics are particularly welcome. While the troposphere is not the main focus of the special section, it is clear that it has a major role to play in middle and upper atmosphere trends; papers that demonstrate this relevance are also appropriate.
Manuscripts can be submitted either to JGR-Space Physics or JGR-Atmospheres, via the GEMS website. If possible, please send tentative titles in advance to john.emmert at nrl.navy.mil (this is not mandatory, but will help with planning). For more information, please visit http://www.hao.ucar.edu/TREND2010/JGRspecialSection.php or contact the guest editors.
