From Loren Change (loren at ncu.edu.tw) on 29 March 2013.
In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in interest on the impact of both upwards and downwards vertical coupling on the Earth’s atmosphere at various heights, as well as on the near-Earth space environment. Issues such as solar cycle influences on the lower, middle, and upper atmosphere, as well as wave driven phenomena propagating from the lower to the upper atmosphere and ionosphere, such as atmospheric tides and various planetary and gravity waves have highlighted the need for interdisciplinary cooperation between researchers in different atmospheric regions.
To address this need, we invite atmospheric and space scientists currently involved with, or interested in coupling processes within the Sun-Earth system to attend the Workshop on Whole Atmosphere Coupling during Solar Cycle 24, to be held from July 14-17, 2013 at National Central University, Jhongli, Taiwan. This workshop focuses on building the interdisciplinary foundation required to understand these coupling processes as we progress through Solar Cycle 24, and is supported in part by funding from Task Group 4 of the CAWSES-II (Climate and Weather of the Sun-Earth System) research program.
• Invited lectures on coupling processes between-the lower, middle, and upper atmosphere, as well with the solar cycle.
• Presentation of recent research progress on related coupling processes, and their influences on various atmospheric regions.
• Group discussion and formulation of an interdisciplinary plan for coordinated observational and modeling efforts during the new solar cycle.

Researchers and students in the atmospheric and space sciences currently involved with, or interested in coupling processes within the Sun-Earth system are encouraged to attend.
The deadline for abstract submission and registration is June 14, 2013. Accommodations at a preferential workshop rate are available till April 30, 2013.
