SM009: Dynamical Processes of the Cusp/Polar Cap Ionosphere

Session Description:
The Polar Cap ionosphere is strongly affected by active solar wind 
Coordinated observations, theory and modeling are needed to decode the 
of the cusp and polar cap dynamics, relevant for GNSS and communication 
Recently there has been an explosion of distributed array of 
(GPS receivers, ionosondes, sounding rockets, satellites, magnetometers, 
instruments, ground-based radars) in the high-latitude region. This 
session focuses
on all aspects of high-latitude dynamics and electrodynamics, including 
and macro-scale physics, field-aligned currents and flow dynamics, 
generation of
waves, instabilities, and scintillation phenomena. Topics involving 
observations and those relating the plasma physics to the observational 
are particularly welcome.
