Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to attend the CEDAR Workshop: Integrative Space Weather at Low Magnetic Latitudes.
The workshop is divided in two sessions.

The first session will take place at the room Mesa C/Hilton on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 from 10:00 AM until noon.
This session will be focussed on the general theme of space weather at low magnetic latitudes including topics ranging from ionospheric instabilities and irregularities (i.e., equatorial spread F) to plasmaspheric drainage and refilling to magnetospheric coherent scatter to solar sounding.

The second session will take place at the room Mesa C/Hilton on Thursday, June 28, 2018 from 10:00 AM until noon.
This second part will be more focused, concentrating on a planning a NASA sounding rocket campaign in Peru anticipated for 2021.

Further information about the program of the workshop can be found in the following link.

We will be very happy to see you at the workshop.

Best regards,

Dave Hysell (david.hysell at cornell.edu)

Workshop description

The equatorial ionosphere was once regarded as being isolated from much of the rest of the ITM system, exhibiting its own unique form of space weather in the form of a variety of ionospheric instabilities and irregularities mostly unique to the region, e.g., equatorial spread F (ESF). However, ESF has proven difficult to forecast reliably, and this paradigm is too limiting. It is now widely appreciated that ionospheric stability in the equatorial zone is influenced by external thermospheric and geomagnetic drivers. As we consider higher altitudes and consider the equatorial plasmasphere and magnetosphere, the isolation between latitude regimes becomes even more tenuous. New experimental capabilities at the Jicamarca Radio Observatory make it possible to examine the coupling of the equatorial ionosphere to regions below and above the F region as well as the coupling to the thermosphere, the plasmasphere, the magnetosphere, and the sun. This workshop seeks to explore the capabilities and the coupling.
