Dear Colleagues

We write to alert you to our session at the 27th IUGG General Assembly, 
8 - 18 July 2019, Montreal, Canada: Session A06 - Energetic Particle 
Precipitation into the Atmosphere: Sources and Atmospheric Impacts.

Abstract deadline: 18 February 2019
Convener: Craig Rodger (New Zealand)
Co-Conveners: Mark Clilverd (UK), Bernd Funke (Spain), Hilde Nesse 
Tyssøy (Norway)

Invited speakers:
Cora Randall (University of Colorado Boulder)
Drew Turner (Aerospace Corporation)

Session description:
This symposium is targeted at both satellite and ground-based and 
experimental observations, as well as theoretical investigations, into 
the precipitation of energetic particles into the D-region ionosphere 
and below. Particle precipitation into the atmosphere is one of the 
mechanisms for energetic electron loss from the Van Allen radiation 
belts. This is particularly significant during and after geomagnetic 
storms, when the loss rate, and the source population, can both 
increase. Submissions describing other examples of energetic particle 
precipitation affecting the mesosphere and stratosphere, for example 
solar proton events or hard-spectrum substorm precipitation, are also 
relevant for this symposium. Papers considering the precipitation 
drivers, the nature of the particle fluxes, or the impact of the 
precipitation on the ionosphere or atmosphere are welcome. We 
particularly welcome observations of atmospheric chemical changes caused 
by energetic particles, new measurements from Arase, the Van Allen 
Radiation Belt Storm Probes, BARREL balloon campaigns showing energetic 
electron loss examples, or approaches showing how electron precipitation 
impacts can be applied by the atmospheric community. Results from the 
SCOSTEP SPeCIMEN and ROSMIC programmes, as well as from SPARC’s 
SOLARIS-HEPPA activity are solicited.
