Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract to the Fall AGU session:

Developing Critical Measurement Strategies in Ionosphere/Thermosphere/Mesosphere Research  -  Ideas and Priorities
Submit an Abstract to this Session<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm16/sa/papers/index.cgi?sessionid=13957>
Session ID#: 13957
Session Description:
The National Academy Heliospheric Decadal Survey recommends science priorities for Ionosphere/Thermosphere/Mesosphere research.  Many of these priorities involve study of the coupled ionosphere-atmosphere-magnetosphere system from multiple vantage points, providing "global" measurements of this tightly coupled system.  In particular, distributed measurements of the behavior of both the electrodynamic/plasma environment and the coupled dynamics/neutral gas properties constitutes a consistent, recognized theme considered critical for achieving significant advances.  At low and mid-latitudes, the Decadal Survey articulated the need to measure lower atmosphere forcing with high temporal and spatial resolution to significantly advance our understanding of this important driver of the I-T system.  The purpose of this session is to foster community dialogue and interaction and to ensure that new observing strategies, including both ground-based and space-based concepts, consider current scientific understanding and newly-developed techniques in measurement, modeling, and theory.  Contributions that highlight outstanding problems as well as results that motivate further investigation, are encouraged.

Invited papers from Tim Fuller-Rowell and Rob Pfaff will address issues from a modeling and measurement perspective. We also will have an interactive panel discussion of advancing our science in collaboration with the satellite, groundbased, LCAS (suborbital, balloons, cubesat, rideshare, etc) and modeling community.
