From: Morris Cohen <> and

            Ningyu Liu <>

2012 URSI National Meeting: Boulder, Colorado, January 4-7, 2012

Joint session organized by Commissions G and H: Lightning and its Interaction with the Ionosphere

This session will cover all aspects of coupling between lightning and the ionosphere/thermosphere/mesosphere system, and energetic radiation from lightning electrical processes. Papers are solicited on experimental and theoretical results in studies of energetic coupling of tropospheric thunderstorms to the mesospheric and ionospheric regions. Contributions on sprites, jets, elves, terrestrial gamma ray flashes, and related electromagnetic effects are welcome, as are those on related topics, such as the local and global effects of these processes, the characteristics of lightning responsible for these phenomena, and other related nonlinear electromagnetic wave/ionosphere interactions.

The DEADLINE for online submission of abstracts is SEPTEMBER 23, 2011.

The web page contains general information along with abstract submission instructions and guidelines. To submit an abstract, go to and follow the link from there. Last year's login accounts remain active on the system.

In addition, we encourage submissions of full papers by students to the annual Student Paper Competition, which are due on the same date. Please see for more information. The three student finalists in this competition will present their papers at the plenary session, and win cash prizes.

Travel funding is available for many students presenting papers as a first author. Completed applications for the USNC-URSI Student Travel Support program are also due on Friday, September 23. Please see for eligibility and full requirements.

We also request that submitting authors send an email to the session organizers indicating that you intend to submit a paper.

The call for papers to URSI NRSM 2012 is attached. We look forward to seeing you in Boulder!
