Dear Colleagues

We are very pleased to announce that the Geophysical Research Letters (GRL)
will be soon accepting paper submissions to the Special Section on the 21
August 2017 solar eclipse. We would like to  invite you to submit your work
addressing solar eclipse effects on geospace  to this special section.

Title of the special section: New understanding of the solar eclipse
effects on geospace: the 21 August 2017 Solar Eclipse

Submission window: October 1 - December 31, 2017.

Special section description:
A solar eclipse generates dramatic changes throughout the Earth's geospace
due to the fast reduction and recovery of solar EUV irradiation. It
modifies local and global energetics, dynamics, and the ionospheric
ionization supply, leading to substantial changes in the coupled
magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere-mesosphere (geospace) system. It is
an idealized "active experiment" to explore the impulse-response dynamics
of geospace and to address some of the fundamental scientific questions in
geospace. The 21 August 2017 solar eclipse provides an unprecedented
opportunity for this because of the large amount of observational data
obtained during the eclipse with recent major advances in sensitivity,
spatial/temporal resolution, and global coverage of measurements, as well
as the development of sophisticated geospace modeling tools. This special
issue aims at quantifying the new understanding of the solar eclipse
effects on geospace. This new understanding includes, but not limited to,
global ionospheric and thermospheric changes, responses of neutral
composition, temperature, and winds, traveling ionospheric disturbances,
geomagnetic and electric field disturbances, localized and meso-scale
structures,  lower ionospheric changes and associated impacts on VLF/LF/HF
radio propagation.

Please use AGU GEMS system (https://grl-submit.agu.org/cgi-bin/main.plex)
to submit your manuscript. When preparing your manuscript, it is important
to follow the regular GRL data
  and length
See also GRL submission checklists and templates page
 for new and revised submissions.

Finally, please note that AGU and its editors are also willing to extend
this collection to articles that may be appropriate for JGR-Space Physics [Read
full aims and scope
and Space Weather [Read full aims and scope
