10:15 – 11:15   Session 1: Seasons and Solar Cycles
    -- Sandra Chapman: Reproducible aspects of the climate of space weather over the last five solar cycles
    -- Colin Forsyth: Seasonal and temporal variations of field-aligned currents and ground magnetic deflections during substorms
11:15 – 12:00   Posters and refreshments

The full set of abstracts is available at ftp://ftp.nerc-bas.ac.uk/helpdesk/System_Scale_Data_Analysis_Joule_Heating_Abstracts_20180330.pdf.

If you wish to attend, we kindly ask that you preregister on the following site:https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/system-scale-data-analysis-to-resolve-thermospheric-joule-heating-tickets-42453674082. Registration is open until 23rd April.  The registration site also has practical details for attendees, including hotel information, and travel advice for getting to the British Antarctic Survey.  Note that financial support is available for attending postgraduate students.

The programme of oral presentations is now finalised, but we are accepting submission of poster abstracts until the close of registration on 23rd April – please submit your poster abstracts here: https://goo.gl/forms/HWxTUEmG6XNge0LV2. The abstract submission form also contains some additional practical advice for how to focus your contributions.

The list of poster presentations to date is:
-- A probabilistic model of ground-based ultra-low frequency waves in Earth’s magnetosphere, parameterised by solar wind properties (Sarah Bentley)
-- The climatological case versus short scale variability -  The impact of thermospheric neutrals (Daniel Billett)
-- Statistical evidence for intensification of Regions 1 and 2 Birkeland currents after substorm onset (John Coxon)
-- Contributions to observations on MIT coupling by the ESA missions Swarm and GOCE (Eelco Doornbos)
-- Quantifying the interaction of the neutral atmosphere and the ionosphere at high-latitudes during polar darkness (Gareth Dorrian)
-- Dynamical Networks Characterization of Space Weather Events (Lauren Orr)
-- The contribution to the variability of polar ionospheric equivalent currents from different components of the interplanetary magnetic field - an EOF approach (Robert Shore)

If you have any queries please contact robore at bas.ac.uk

We look forward to seeing you there,
