Dear CEDAR Attendees,

We would like to encourage your participation in the CEDAR Grand Challenge Workshop: Coupling and Transport Processes from the Upper Mesosphere through the Middle Thermosphere (80-200 km), MLT extended (MLT-X). Monday, June 22, Monday Afternoon 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 pm; 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., Kane 130.  See http://cedarweb.vsp.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2015_Workshop:MLT_X_Grand_Challenge

This Grand Challenge Workshop is working toward establishing the necessary measurements, theory, and modeling of the thermosphere and ionosphere to address a broad class of processes in the 80-200 km region. To provide focus, the MLT-X Workshop addresses two processes that have profound effects on planetary atmospheres on Earth, as well as other planetary atmospheres; 1) Plasma-neutral atmospheric coupling and 2) wave-induced transport and turbulence.  More detail can be found at http://cedarweb.vsp.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2014_Workshop:Coupling_and_Transport_Processes

This four-year, GC Workshop is in its second year. The first year consisted of talks and discussions surrounding the two focused science questions. Jeff Thayer will summarize those discussions in an opening presentation at this year's workshop. The focus of this year's workshop is to consider the necessary measurement scenarios to address the science questions and investigate the existing and planned instrumentation, facilities, and campaigns to advance the science goals of the MLT-X region. Therefore, a broad range of speakers covering lidar, ISR, FPI, imagers, rockets, satellites and field sites has been arranged with time built-in for community input about future campaign prospects and collaborations to advance the science.

Please try to attend this important community discussion and provide a voice in the future direction of MLT-X science.
