Notification of session J10 (Energetic particle precipitation into the 
atmosphere: sources and consequences) which is part of the upcoming IAGA 
scientific assembly to be held in Merida, on the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. 
Please consider presenting work at our session.

The J10 session has been scheduled to run on the afternoon of Friday 30 August 
and all-day Saturday 31 August 2013. The session description is: Particle 
precipitation into the atmosphere is one of the mechanisms for energetic 
electron loss from the Van Allen radiation belts. This is particularly 
significant during and after geomagnetic storms, when the loss rate, and the 
source population, can both increase. This session is targeted at both 
ground-based and satellite experimental observations, as well as theoretical 
investigations, into the precipitation of energetic electrons (>20 keV) into 
the D-region ionosphere and below. Papers considering the precipitation 
drivers, the nature of the particle fluxes, or the impact of the precipitation 
on the ionosphere or atmosphere are welcome. We particularly welcome early 
results from RBSP, showing energetic electron loss examples and processes and 
how it can be applied by the atmospheric community.

The important conference deadlines are:
* March 31, 2013. Grant application deadline --> abstract submission 
* April 13, 2013. Abstract submission deadline.
* April 30, 2013. Decision about grants.
* May 31, 2013. Reduced rate registration.

There is also a another radiation belt session earlier in the IAGA assembly 
(Wave and particle dynamics in the radiation belts and ring current) which is 
clearly very relevant to our joint-science area.

We believe that the IAGA meeting in Mexico has a strong range of relevant 
sessions and should be an excellent meeting. For further information on this 
meeting, please look at the website: http://www.iaga2013.org.mx/

We hope you can join us and present your work at our session!
