(1) Proposals for observing time at Arecibo Radio Observatory extended to 2 June (probably).


From Sixto Gonzalez (sixto@naic.edu) and David Hysell (david.hysell@cornell.edu).

The deadline for proposals for observing time at the Arecibo Radio Observatory was to have been June 1st. Because of an unplanned internet outage at the observatory, the proposal deadline has been extended by one day. Should the outage continue longer than expected, the deadline may be extended further, but investigators should plan on submitting proposals by the 2nd.


(2) Dayside FACs and Energy Deposition (FED FG) Joint GEM-CEDAR Meeting - call for contributions.


From Delores Knipp (delores.knipp at gmail.com).

We would like to invite contributions to the Dayside FAC and Energy Deposition (FED) focus group at the upcoming GEM-CEDAR workshop in Santa-Fe on June 27-July 1, 2011. This will be the second year in which special sessions on this topic have been held. The effort focuses on explaining the relation between enhanced dayside Poynting flux and field-aligned currents, sources of field-aligned currents in the solar wind and magnetosphere and their impacts in the ionosphere-thermosphere system. The Focus Group goals and other information are at:

The FED focus group will hold two sessions. Both sessions have been tentatively scheduled on Tuesday Jun 28 (10-12 and 1:30-3:30). The sessions will cover data, theory, and modeling aspects of the following topics:

Dayside Poynting Flux, Joule Heating and Their Relation to Field Aligned Currents Particle Energy Deposition on the Dayside Dissipation of Magnetospheric Energy in the Dayside Thermosphere Thermospheric Density Enhancements and Traveling Atmo/Ionospheric Disturbances Solar Wind Drivers for Extreme Dayside Poynting Flux Events

The sessions will be held in a joint workshop with CEDAR. We anticipate a full slate of presentations and want to encourage a presentation style in which each speaker will be allotted time for a 3-4 slides, in order to ensure enough time for discussion. At least one of the slides should deal with unresolved issues. Speakers are encouraged to end their presentation with outstanding questions that can be addressed jointly.

If you have not already done so, please send the title(s) and session(s) of your contribution(s) to us at your earliest convenience at the email addresses listed below.

Also note that some of the Dayside FED events have been added to the GEM-CEDAR challenge events and will get additional attention in the Challenge sessions (see meeting agenda for details at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2011_Workshop:Main).
