Session Title: Vertical Wave Coupling Into the Ionosphere/Thermosphere/Mesosphere System
Session Description:

It is by now without dispute that the ionosphere/thermosphere/mesosphere (ITM) system owes much of its longitudinal, local time, seasonal-latitudinal, and day-to-day variability to atmospheric waves generated by meteorological events in the troposphere and stratosphere. The relevant coupling processes operating within the neutral atmosphere, and the neutral atmosphere and ionosphere, involve a host of multi-scale dynamics that are not understood at present. This session focuses on how the solar-terrestrial energy flow via tides, gravity waves and planetary waves drives variations in ITM structure, dynamics and electrodynamics. Observational, modeling and theoretical contributions are sought that emphasize vertical wave coupling in the neutral atmosphere, and ionospheric coupling through dynamo processes and plasma bubble seeding.
