** Third call for the 6th VERSIM workshop - DEADLINES approaching
20-23 January 2014, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
The abstract submission, normal registration and financial support
deadlines for the 6th VERSIM workshop are fast approaching. The workshop
will take place in January next year 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
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 the International Union of Radio
Science (URSI) Commission H and G, the International Association of
Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), and the University of Otago.
