Large-scale plasma bubbles and associated ESF irregularities are the most significant disturbances at low latitudes. Radio scintillation produced by plasma irregularities causes degradation or disruption of communication, navigation, and surveillance systems. A number of outstanding scientific problems (including the ionospheric condition for the generati - GC Timeline: This grand challenge workshop is planned for four years. We will organize two sessions (two hours each) every year. One session will focus on observations and instrumentation, and another session will focus on modeling and forecast capability. In each year\'s meeting, we will organize a round-table discussion to determine the most challenging topics and to make suggestions to the CEDAR community what coordinated research efforts are needed. - GC Speakers: Tutorial speakers and topics will be provided later.

However, the lack of observational data of middle thermosphere neutral gas properties has severely limited progress in understanding and characterizing the impact of these processes, which in turn, has inhibited the advancement or verification of global circulation models of the upper atmosphere. Because of th - GC Timeline: The plan is for this Workshop to cover a four year period:\r\n\r\nYear 1: Hold a CEDAR workshop to establish middle thermosphere science goals related to the two questions posed by inviting theorists and experimentalists involved in middle thermosphere / ionosphere studies.

With the development of the RISR-N and RISR-C facilities, and the launch of the SWARM and e-POP satellite missions, we have an unprecedent - GC Timeline: We propose a 4-year timeline, that will span the planned residency of the RISR-N facility in its Resolute Bay location. We are currently reviewing data sets from RISR-N and supporting instruments acquired as part of the “RINGS” campaign (RISR INvestigation of the Geospace System) and these initial results will be discussed at the 2014 session.

  20. edit proposed on 2014-03-14 12:35:33 -Geospace system science during storms and substorms - by N. Maruyama for 4 hours using Short Presentations with categories Altitudes: IT, Latitudes: global, Inst/Model: radar, Other: all the available data and modeling - for 80 people - conflicts: Monday. This would encourage the participation of those people attending the GEM workshop in the preceding week. - requests: two projecters if available - GC Request: Last year, the same session was successful with many participants. At the end of the wrap-up discussions, we have gotten agreement with the participants that our effort to address the science questions identified in our session proposal must be continued as a multi-year effort (see the workshop report 2013 http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2013_Workshop:Geospace_system_science). Thanks to the Joint GEM-CEDAR workshop last year, we have come to a recognition that in order to investigate the geospace system as a whole, we would need to look at the geospace system from different perspectives (see the workshop report by the organizer, Larry Lyons. Mannucci, Baker and Maruyama were co-organizers: http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2013_Workshop:GEM-CEDAR_Workshop). \\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nWe would like to achieve this goal by bringing together all the available observations from both ground and space, and from ionosphere, thermosphere and magnetosphere. Coordination with GEM community is required in order to tackle the above identified science questions from system perspective by working on the same events from system point of view including magnetospheric observations (e.g., recent space missions including Van Allen Probes, and THEMIS). We already plan to coordinate joint campaigns with the GEM FG Storm-Time Inner Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Convection (SIMIC) led by Baker, Ruohoniemi and others (http://www-ssc.igpp.ucla.edu/gemwiki/index.php/FG:_Storm-Time_Inner_Magnetosphere-Ionosphere_Convection). We are also considering to coordinating some efforts with another GEM FG, “Geospace Systems Science” led by Joe Borovsky et al, just selected this year. - GC Timeline: Timeline for 3 years:\\r\\n\\r\\nYear1 (2014): We initiate joint campaigns with the GEM FG SIMIC. We encourage participants to bring all the available observations and model simulations from both CEDAR and GEM communities for the selected events. We continue active discussions, by encouraging participants to attend the mini-GEM workshop at fall AGU meeting for further coordination. We plan coordination with the new GEM FG “Geospace Systems Science”.\\r\\n\\r\\nYear2 (2015): We organize a coordinated session when the GEM and CEDAR meetings will (hopefully) be physically closer to one another. We continue the joint campaigns with the GEM FG SIMIC. We focus on the unsolved problems we had identified at the previous workshop. We initiate coordination with the new GEM FG “Geospace Systems Science”. We continue active discussions, by encouraging participants to attend the mini-GEM workshop at fall AGU meeting for further coordination.\\r\\n\\r\\nYear3 (2016): We continue coordinated effort with the GEM FGs. We wrap up all the previous campaigns and coordination. We review our progress and new findings. We plan for a coordinated publication effort. We identify any unsolved problems, and make suggestions for future workshop. - GC Speakers: Speakers: Mike Ruohoniemi, and Phil Erickson; \\r\\nTopics: storm/substorm studies by combining GPS-TEC, SuperDARN, ISR, and Van Allen Probes

A further challenge is identifying the right set of measurements at global scales that would improve predictive capabilities of models. Through this workshop, we plan to bring the community together to identify specific global-scale ionosphere-thermosphere questions that can be addressed by specific distributed, networked instrumentation, and include them in a roadmap to understanding system science. - GC Timeline: This workshop will be a platform to discuss instrumentation that is currently in the planning stages. It will also be a platform for the modeling community to lay out a set of inputs needed to improve their models that can be met by networked instrumentation. We would like to propose a an initial timeline of 4 years to effectively assess where we are, where we are still lacking, and the progress made in understanding the system science through the use of networked instrumentation. - GC Speakers: None for the first one.
