Dear colleagues,

We wish to draw your attention to session JM-3, Thunderstorm Coupling to the Upper Atmosphere, at the upcoming IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA scientific assembly in Cape Town, South Africa from 27 August to 1 September, 2017.

The deadline for abstract submission is 12 March 2017.

Submissions are solicited on all aspects of thunderstorm coupling to the upper atmosphere, including (but not limited to) electromagnetic coupling, chemical effects, and acoustic and gravity waves.  The session description is given below and also can be found at http://www.iapso-iamas-iaga2017.com/index.php/thunderstorm-coupling-to-the-upper-atmosphere-iamas-iaga.

The link to abstract submission can be found at http://www.iapso-iamas-iaga2017.com/index.php/abstract-submission.

We hope to see you in Cape Town!

IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA Joint Assembly, Cape Town, South Africa, 27 Aug – 1 Sep, 2017

Session JM-3: Thunderstorm Coupling to the Upper Atmosphere (IAMAS, IAGA)

Convenor: Colin Price
Co-convenors: Steve Cummer, Paula Fagundes, Andrew Collier

Description: While thunderstorms occur in the troposphere, sensitive to conditions at the Earth's surface, their impact can expand through the stratosphere, mesosphere, ionosphere and into the magnetosphere. This session focuses on this coupling between thunderstorms and the upper layers of the atmosphere.  This coupling could be dynamical (gravity and acoustic waves), electromagnetic (ELF/VLF waves, EMPs), electrostatic (sprites), chemical (NOx production, airglow emissions), or a combination (heating of the lower ionosphere). Furthermore, the EM energy couples through the lower ionosphere and into the upper ionosphere and magnetosphere. These topics are related to present and future satellite and ISS experiments. We welcome papers on all aspects of the coupling between thunderstorms and the upper atmospheric layers.
