Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to send an abstract and participate in the session SM016 on Magnetosphere - Ionosphere Coupling Processes. The deadline is August 5.

Session ID#: 7579

Session Description:
The Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere are strongly coupled.  The magnetosphere is an important energy source for the ionosphere. During storm times, the magnetosphere deposits significant energy into the high-latitude ionosphere in the form of auroral particle precipitation and Poynting flux. The subsequent high-latitude ionization, ionospheric electric field variations, Joule heating, and ion-drag forcing alter the global ionosphere - thermosphere dynamics. In turn, the ionosphere is an important plasma source for the magnetosphere. Ionospheric ion outflows contribute to the plasma populations in various magnetospheric regions including the plasmasphere, ring current, plasma sheet, and lobes. Cold dense/heavy plasmas of ionospheric outflow or plasmaspheric plume origin control the magnetospheric dynamics at/near the magnetopause, and in the radiation belts, magnetotail, etc. This session addresses details of the magnetosphere - ionosphere coupling using observations, modeling, or both.
