Dear Colleagues

We write to alert you to our session at the IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA scientific 
assembly, 27 August – 1 September 2017, Cape Town, South Africa: Session 
A14 - Energetic Particle Precipitation into the Atmosphere: Sources and 
Atmospheric Impacts (DIV II – DIV III – VERSIM/ ICMA).

Abstract deadline: 12 March
Convenor: Craig Rodger
Co-Convenors: Mark Clilverd, Bernd Funke, Hilde Nesse Tyssoy

Invited speakers:
Dan Baker (Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics)
Clare Watt (University of Reading)
Emma Douma (University of Otago)
Alessandro Damiani (Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and 
Pavle Arsenovic (Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science)

Session description:
This symposium is targeted at both satellite and ground-based and 
experimental observations, as well as theoretical investigations, into 
the precipitation of energetic particles into the D-region ionosphere 
and below. Particle precipitation into the atmosphere is one of the 
mechanisms for energetic electron loss from the Van Allen radiation 
belts. This is particularly significant during and after geomagnetic 
storms, when the loss rate, and the source population, can both 
increase. Submissions describing other examples of energetic particle 
precipitation affecting the mesosphere and stratosphere, for example 
solar proton events or hard-spectrum substorm precipitation, are also 
relevant for this symposium. Papers considering the precipitation 
drivers, the nature of the particle fluxes, or the impact of the 
precipitation on the ionosphere or atmosphere are welcome. We 
particularly welcome observations of atmospheric chemical changes caused 
by energetic particles, new measurements from the Van Allen Radiation 
Belt Storm Probes or BARREL balloon campaigns showing energetic electron 
loss examples, or approaches showing how electron precipitation impacts 
can be applied by the atmospheric community. Results from the SCOSTEP 
SPeCIMEN and ROSMIC programmes, as well as from SPARC’s SOLARIS-HEPPA 
activity are solicited.
This symposium is co-sponsored by the International Commission on the 
Middle Atmosphere (ICMA) of IAMAS.
