Tue Aug 7 08:19:32 MDT 2018

Dear colleagues,

Please consider submit your papers to the JGR special section. It is important to avoid delays in manuscript submissions and revisions. We encourage authors to act in a timely manner and remain responsive throughout the review process.

Call for Papers for “Long-term changes and Trends in the Middle and Upper Atmosphere”

Submission Open: 01 August 2018
Submission Deadline: 31 January 2019

Special Section Organizers:
Jia Yue, Hampton University, University of Maryland College Park; Tao Li, University of Science and Technology of China; Shunrong Zhang, MITLiying Qian, NCAR; Jan Lastovicka, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, CAS

This special issue is inspired by the recent 10th Trend Workshop in May 2018, but is open to all relevant submissions. Long-term changes to Earth’s middle and upper atmosphere are becoming more and more relevant to the future of our world and it is paramount that we quantify and understand changes occurring at all levels within the coupled atmospheric system. The increasing concentration of greenhouse gases, stratospheric ozone depletion, varying solar and geomagnetic activity, secular change of Earth’s magnetic field, and changing dynamics propagating up from the troposphere are some of the possible causes of long-term changes in the stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere and ionosphere. The goals of this workshop are to review the current state of knowledge about trends in these atmospheric regions, and to discuss what research is necessary for resolving inconsistencies, reducing uncertainties, and achieving a deeper understanding of middle and upper atmospheric climate change – especially the relative influences of anthropogenic and solar effects. Topics on long-term variations of the middle and upper atmosphere and ionosphere such as QBO, ENSO, MJO are all welcomed.

Authors are to submit through the GEMS site for JGR: Space Physics at https://jgr-spacephysics-submit.agu.org or for JGR: Atmospheres at https://jgr-atmospheres-submit.agu.org. When authors submit a manuscript, they must select the appropriate special section designation.  For additional information please contact jgr-spacephysics at agu.org<mailto:jgr-spacephysics at agu.org> and jgr-atmospheres at agu.org
