** First call for the 6th VERSIM workshop
20-23 January 2014, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
Please be aware that in about 1 year the 6th VERSIM workshop will take place in
Dunedin, New Zealand. VERSIM (VLF/ELF Remote Sensing of the Ionosphere and
Magnetosphere) is a joint working group of IAGA and URSI, made up of
researchers interested in studying the behaviour of the magnetosphere and
ionosphere by means of ELF (300 Hz - 3 kHz) and VLF (3-30 kHz) radio waves,
both naturally and artificially generated.
The working group is broadly interested in ELF/VLF waves, whether they are used
as remote sensing probes or affect other physical processes. The VERSIM working
group topics typically include magnetosphere and plasmasphere studies,
wave-particle interactions in the radiation belts, sub-ionospheric sensing of
the D-region, lightning and sprites.

The 6th VERSIM workshop is sponsored by URSI Commission H and G and the
University of Otago.
If you are interested in attending the 6th VERSIM workshop, or simply wish to
gain extra information, please email Craig Rodger (crodger at physics.otago.ac.nz)
and he will put you on the announcement list.
