Please consider submitting an abstract to the following AGU session on 
the role of Wave Processes in Coupling the 
Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere system.

*SM027: Wave Processes in Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere Coupling*


*Invited Speakers: Dr. Hanli Liu and Dr. Oleksiy Agapitov*

*Session Description: *
The magnetosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere are coupled via neutral 
gas, charged particles, and electromagnetic fields across many spatial 
and temporal scales. Now is an exciting time to study this coupling as 
near-Earth space becomes more accessible, physically via observations, 
and computationally by faster, more capable models.

Coupling phenomena include those carrying energy away from Earth (ion 
outflow, gravity/planetary wave breaking, terrestrial VLF sources), and 
those carrying energy toward Earth (particle precipitation, Earthward 
Poynting flux). All these can be modulated and/or mediated by a diverse 
set of waves.

This session solicits observational, analytic, and modeling studies of 
wave properties and dynamics as they impact coupling between the 
magnetosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere. Of particular interest are 
studies bringing new information to persistent problems (e.g. wave 
transmission via density ducts, Joule heating dynamics, thermospheric 
neutral gas wave dynamics), and studies that set the stage for 
near-future missions such as Geospace Dynamics Constellation (GDC).
