We welcome the CEDAR community to participate in the CEDAR Light Atoms Across Atmospheric Regions workshop to be held on Thursday, June 28th from 10 AM - 12 PM. We have room for additional short presentations and are also planning time for discussion. A description of the workshop is below. Please let us know if you would like to give a short presentation and/or if you have a topic or question you would like us to discuss during the session.

Light Atoms Across Atmospheric Regions
Knowledge of light atoms is important to understanding processes shaping the neutral atmosphere and the ionosphere and plasmasphere. This workshop contributes to the following CEDAR plan strategic thrusts: Strategic Thrust #1:Encourage and Undertake a Systems Perspective to Geospace Strategic Thrust #2: Explore Exchange Processes at Boundaries and Transitions Strategic Thrust #3: Explore Processes Related to Geospace Evolution Strategic Thrust #4: Develop Observational and Instrumentation Strategies for Geospace System Studies
Light atoms play key roles in determining the dynamics and composition of the middle and upper atmosphere, as well as for the ionosphere and plasmasphere through charge exchange reactions. Neutral hydrogen is a by-product of methane and water vapor below, two principal gases involved in the radiative balance of the Earth’s atmosphere. We invite presentations relating to modeling and observational studies of light atoms (H, O, He) in and/or across any of the atmospheric regions. There will also be time for informal discussion.
