Dear all,

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to session SM 014 at the 2016 Fall AGU meeting. This session is cross-listed in SPA Aeronomy and SPA Magnetospheric Physics.

Ion Upflow/Outflow Physics and Their Effects on the Coupled Magnetosphere-Ionosphere System

The Earth’s ionosphere is a significant source of plasma to the magnetosphere and a strong influence on the dynamics of the geospace environment. The ionospheric source is contributing plasma to the plasmasphere, the plasma sheet, and the ring current and through wave-particle interactions is playing a major role in the formation and dynamics of the radiation belts. Hence, understanding of the strength and dynamics of the ion upflow/outflow particles up into the magnetosphere is of critical importance to understanding how the magnetosphere is populated and influenced by these initially low-energy particles.
In this session, we invite papers that attempt to improve understanding (1) on the influences of low-altitude ionosphere-thermosphere conditions on ion upflow/outflow into the magnetosphere, (2) on the energization processes of the ion upflow/outflow population for the polar wind, and (3) on the effects of ion outflow population on magnetospheric dynamics. Papers on data, theory, and modeling are invited.

Best regards,
On behalf of session conveners
