Invitation to 2015 CEDAR workshop "Inner Magnetospheric-Ionospheric Coupling and Dynamics"
The recent launches of the NASA Van Allen (VA) Probes and the Magnetospheric Multiscale Spacecraft (MMS) has ushered in a new data-driven era of coupled geospace research involving nearly all aspects of the ionosphere-thermosphere-magnetosphere (ITM) system.  The current set of ground and space based assets gives for the first time a compelling and wide ranging simultaneous coverage of processes in e.g. the outer magnetosphere (spacecraft: THEMIS, LANL, GOES geosynchronous ), inner magnetosphere (spacecraft: VA Probes and MMS), and ionosphere/thermosphere (satellite: DMSP, ePOP, SWARM; CEDAR ground-based assets).  This workshop brings together the ITM communities, currently distributed across both NSF CEDAR and GEM, to discuss relevant science issues.  The timing of the workshop is motivated by the ongoing highly successful THEMIS, Van Allen Probes, and now MMS spacecraft missions, currently providing unprecedented complementary coverage of the inner and outer magnetosphere.  Focused efforts will foster the exploration of key ITM topics, including energetic particle precipitation from the radiation belts, ring current loss to the thermosphere, dynamics of sub-auroral polarization streams (SAPS), ionospheric-modulated electric field diffusivity, and others.  We discourage AGU style presentations and encourage short-presentation workshop style and open discussion.

Time: 10:00-12:00 on June 25th, 2015 (Thursday)
