From Victor Pasko (vpasko at psu.edu) on 26 July 2013.


Dear Colleagues,

Contributions are invited to the following sessions at Fall AGU 2013 Meeting to be held in San Francisco, CA 9-13 December 2013. Abstract submission deadline is Tuesday 6 August 2013. Abstracts can be submitted at http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2013/


AE002. Global Connections in Earth's Atmosphere-Electrical System

Atmospheric and Space Electricity (AE), Atmospheric Sciences (A), SPA-Aeronomy (SA)

Conveners:

Jeffrey Forbes, University of Colorado, forbes@colorado.edu Wiebke Deierling, National Center for Atmospheric Research, deierlin@ucar.edu Victor Pasko, Penn State, vpasko@psu.edu

The availability of new and extended data sets and models now enables a truly global perspective of the global electric circuit (GEC) over a range of spatial and temporal scales and resolutions. This session invites submissions that describe modeling and observational advances pertaining to global connections in Earth’s atmosphere-electrical system. The scope includes, for example, topics such as El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) modulation of lightning distributions and the GEC response; the impacts of galactic cosmic rays, solar energetic protons, and whistler-induced particle precipitation; magnetosphere and ionosphere driving of the GEC; heterogeneity in the GEC due to global aerosol distributions; the GEC as an indicator of climate change.


AE005. Thunderstorm Effects in the Near-Earth Space Environment

Atmospheric and Space Electricity (AE), Atmospheric Sciences (A), SPA-Aeronomy (SA), SPA-Magnetospheric Physics (SM)

Conveners:

Victor Pasko, Penn State, vpasko@psu.edu Torsten Neubert, Technical Univ. Denmark, neubert@space.dtu.dk Jean-Louis Pincon, LPC2E/CNRS, jean-louis.pincon@cnrs-orleans.fr

Contributions are invited for all topics related to Transient Luminous Events (TLE). Included are TLE observations, the dependence on the underlying lightning drivers and their ELF/VLF electromagnetic signatures, their meteorological correlates, including atmospheric circulation and transport processes, field induced perturbations in the upper atmosphere such as ionization and conductivity, lightning-induced precipitation of electrons from the magnetosphere, infrasonic and gravity waves and chemical perturbations, and possible linkages to the global climate system. Contributions are especially invited describing modeling and laboratory studies, ongoing or new satellite programs, upcoming ground-based and balloon field campaigns.
