Dear Colleagues


Tomorrow (4.03.2016) is the abstract submission deadline for AOGS 2016 in
Beijing (31.07.2016-5.08.2016).

Please, do not lose the last chance to inform scientific community about you
investigations in frame of the session AS03 devoted to Airglow and Emission




Kind regards,

Session convener

Michael Grygalashvyly





AOGS 2016: July 31 - August 5, 2016 in Beijing. 


AS-03:            Airglow Layers on Earth and Terrestrial Planets


Conveners: Michael Grygalashvyly (Leibniz-Institute of Atmospheric Physics
(IAP), Germany), William Ward (University of New Brunswick, Canada), Prof.
Patrick Espy (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway), Dr. P
K Rajesh (National Central University, Taiwan)



Airglow Layers on Earth and Terrestrial Planets


The observations of O2(exc.), O(exc.), Na(exc.) and OH* airglow emissions is
a tool extensively used to infer temperatures in MLT (mesosphere - lower
thermosphere) and information about dynamical processes, such as gravity
waves, planetary waves, and tides. The airglow measurements are used to
determine O, O3, and H which are very difficult to measure by other methods,
and, in perspective, can be used to retrieve the water vapor. A number of
investigations are focused on temperature trends. Recently, airglow
emissions were detected on Mars and Venus that give rise new abilities.

Notwithstanding large application, less attention was devoted to parameters
of the airglow layers such as thickness, altitude, and concentration.
Concerning the airglow layers a number of questions arise. How do the
altitudes, intensities, concentrations of the layers change? Which
variations in temperature corresponds to the layers variations? How do the
variations dependent on chemistry, dynamics and Solar activity? What is the
relative behavior of the layers? What are the dependences between the
heights and emissions intensities (concentrations)? These and other
questions can be asked in the framework of seasonal-latitudinal, short-term,
and long-term variability. The questions on formation-relaxation processes
of the airglow layers are represent an additional field of interest.

A session will be dedicated to O2(exc.), O(exc.), Na(exc.) and OH* airglow
emissions in the atmospheres of the Earth and Terrestrial planets.
Presentations which deal with the details of the formation-relaxation
processes, morphology, temporal variability, photochemistry and the nature
of its response to dynamical disturbances will be collected, including
ground based and satellite observations, model simulations, as well as new
observation techniques and theoretical research that can help advance our
knowledge of the airglow layers parameters, formation and relaxation. This
session is intended to support discussion and collaboration on the
understanding of airglow emissions.
