Dear Colleagues,
We invite you to submit contributions to our session on active experiments in space. 

Session ID: 23989 
Session Title: SM005. Past, Present and Future of Active Experiments in Space 
Section/Focus Group: SPA-Magnetospheric Physics 
Link:  https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/preliminaryview.cgi/Session23989

Session Description:
Since the 1960s space active experiments have been performed to (1) probe basic plasma physics phenomena, (2) elucidate aspects of magnetospheric and ionospheric physics, and (3) understand how to control the effects of the environment on space assets. Recently, a renewed interest on active experiments has arisen, as called for in the 2012 Decadal Survey of the National Research Council, driven by important scientific and national security applications such as magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling and radiation belt remediation.
This session aims at bringing together researchers interested in a broad area of active experiments in space, including relevant basic plasma physics, wave-particle and wave-wave interaction interactions, non-linear phenomena, generation of density irregularities and triggering large-amplitude responses in the strongly coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere system. Contributions ranging from historical perspectives on past active experiments to what fundamental scientific questions and applications could be tackled by new active experiments are welcome.
