Dear all,


The AGU Fall Meeting submission season is upon us, so here begins the slew
of proclamations electronically beating you on the head to submit.  I would
like to announce the below session, relevant for ionospheric modification
from natural and anthropogenic sources.  The abstract deadline is August 5.
Submissions can be made at http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2015/.  See you at


Best regards,

AE004: Ionospheric Modification by Lightning, Solar Flux, and Active

Session ID#: 8874


Session Description:


The ionosphere is known to be modified from its ambient conditions by
several thunderstorm-related phenomena, including the EMP and quasi-static
fields from lightning, and thunderstorm-driven gravity waves. Ionospheric
modification also results from solar disturbances, including flares and
eclipses. Many observational techniques exist, including VLF remote sensing,
GPS TEC, and HF sounding. 


Active and controlled experiments to modify the ionosphere have for decades
been a promising complement to observations of natural ionospheric
modification, turning the ionosphere into an expansive laboratory. Primary
techniques include high power radio waves from HF arrays or other ground
sources and high altitude particle releases. Physical phenomena stimulated
include electron heating, density irregularities, plasma turbulence, optical
emissions, ELF/VLF wave generation, and magnetospheric coupling.


We solicit papers presenting observations, modeling, and/or experiments
related to ionospheric modification. Papers may focus on natural or active
ionospheric modification, or on comparisons of the underlying physics that
drive both.
