Dear Phil,

Please advertise the following ionosphere-radar session via the
Australian STSP e-mail list. 

The session is very broad in its scope and it will attract many

Best wishes, Murray

5th Asia Oceania Geoscience Society (AOGS), Busan, Korea, 16 to 20 June

Solar Terrestrial (ST) Session: 

High- and Mid-Latitude Ionosphere: New Insights from Recent Ground-based
Observations and
Satellite Collaborations

Rapid development of ground-based radio (IS radars, SuperDARN, GPS-TEC,
Ionosondes etc.)
and optical instruments during the last decade has allowed us to better
visualize the dynamic
nature of various ionospheric phenomena with improved spatial and
temporal resolution. For
example, recent extension of the SuperDARN network to both lower and
higher latitudes has
shown that the polar cap and mid-latitude ionosphere are much more
active than we ever
thought. In addition, there are several on-going ground-based and
satellite (IMAGE, Cluster,
THEMIS, REIMEI etc.) collaborations aimed at understanding the
electromagnetic coupling
between magnetospheric processes and ionospheric disturbances. This
session addresses
ground-based and satellite observations and data analysis as well as
modeling approaches and
theories of dynamics and structures in the high- and mid-latitude
ionosphere, in terms of
possible coupling between separate magnetospheric regions, the polar
cap, cusp,
auroral/subauroral zones, and mid-latitude ionosphere. Topics on the
various kinds of
ionospheric features, such as aurora, cusp auroral transients, polar cap
aurora, ion outflow, polar
cap patches, subauroral polarization stream (SAPS), magnetic pulsations,
traveling ionospheric
(atmospheric) disturbances, (TID/TAD), ionospheric irregularities (FAI),
sporadic-E, and
ionospheric storms, are welcome. Presentations on planned projects are
also welcome.
