Dear colleagues,

I would like to draw your attention to the Geospace sessions at the ESA Living Planet Symposium. The symposium will be held on 13-17 May, 2019 in Milan, Italy. For more details, the symposium website is available at http://lps19.esa.int/. The Geospace session descriptions from this website are copied below.

Please kindly consider to contribute to a session and/or to distribute the information about this symposium to your colleagues. The deadline for abstract submission is 11 November 2018.

Kind regards,

Eelco Doornbos

A.7 Geospace

A7.01 Geospace system science: thermosphere, ionosphere, magnetosphere and their coupling

Regular Contributed
This session deals with geospace science on all temporal and spatial scales. It includes new results based on ESA (such as but not limited to Swarm and GOCE) and Third-Party missions and affiliated observing systems, and also novel physics-based modelling approaches for improved understanding of geospace and space weather. Specifically, we solicit contributions on the first-order questions in thermosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere science, with particular emphasis on coupling between the various elements. Elements linked to ESA's ambitious 4D Ionosphere activities and their link with world-wide R&D activities are particularly welcome.

Convenors: Claudia Stolle (GFZ), Eelco Doornbos (TU Delft), Jonathan Burchill (U. Calgary), Rune Floberghagen (ESA), Roger Haagmans (ESA))

A7.02 Upper/lower atmosphere coupling

Regular Contributed
This session invites contributions dealing with the coupling between the lower and the upper layers of the Earth's atmosphere. Nowadays, many phenomena occurring in the troposphere and stratosphere are regularly observed in-situ by satellites equipped with suitable sensors measuring key parameters of the charged and neutral particle environment. Whistlers, TLEs, gravity waves, planetary waves, atmospheric tides and even observations of high-risk extreme events such as earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoon are steadily reported in the literature. In view of for example ESA's Swarm mission a number of such findings have been reported.However, few meetings offer a platform to discuss these findings with an adequate view to defining research priorities and objectives to arrive at a better physical understanding of this type of coupling phenomena and how it can be used to better understand our home planet and its interaction with the geospace environment.

Convenors: Ian Mann (U. Alberta), Ewa Slominska (OBSEE), Rune Floberghagen (ESA), Roger Haagmans (ESA)

A7.03 Space weather

Regular Contributed
Space weather can have profound effects on the science and operations of European Earth observation satellite missions. These can range from ionospheric effects on satellite radar and tracking signals to thermosphere drag affecting orbit and formation maintenance.
Often, the mitigation measures available on board Earth observation satellites, such as dual frequency radiometric systems, can also provide interesting information on space weather events.
Missions like Swarm and GOCE have already provided direct space weather related data products and inputs to space weather and space climate models.
This session aims to bring together contributions on these topics, in particular related to current limitations, new developments, and data products, related to space weather.

Convenors: Eelco Doornbos (U. Delft), Guram Kervalishvili (GFZ)
