Dear colleagues,

We solicit presentations at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting on a variety of
issues in the M-I-T system, particularly on multi-scale coupling and energy
transfer processes.

Session Title:
SA004. Cross-scale Coupling and Energy Transfer in the
Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere System

Session Description:
Determining the effects of energy deposition and transport, and momentum
exchange across different spatial and temporal scales is an important
objective in the M-I-T system, due to the clear evidence of multi-scale
forcing. Coupling over multiple scales is also a critical challenge since
observational and modeling methodologies for bridging different scales do
not presently exist. This session solicits presentations on a wide range of
coupling processes in the high-latitude M-I-T system from global to
small-scale processes and related solar wind forcing. Relevant topics
include (but are not limited to) (1) density structures and temperature
gradients (polar cap, cusp, plume, trough, irregularities); (2) convection
(flow channels, SAPS) and FAC; (3) energy transfer and deposition by
precipitation and ULF waves, conductivity, aurora, and heating; and (4)
coupling and feedback into the magnetosphere. Discussions of relevant
multi-scale observations by means of multiple instruments, including space
and ground-based, modeling and data science are encouraged.

Best regards,

Toshi Nishimura
