Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract for the session on geomagnetic 
indices at IUGG 2019 in Montreal.

*Session description*
A18 - Dependable, Long-Term Geomagnetic Indices and Modern, Index-Based 
Services: 70th Anniversary Of the Kp Index

70 year ago, in 1949, Julius Bartels introduced the geomagnetic Kp 
index. This symposium is dedicated to the production, prediction and 
application of geomagnetic indices.
These indices, derived from geomagnetic observations, quantify phenomena 
like the energy transfer from the solar wind or the strength of the ring 
current. They are used as space weather indicators and as input for 
empirical models of the space environment. Due to their long-term 
stability they can be used to quantify space climate. Next to the 
established IAGA-endorsed geomagnetic indices there also exist 
researcher-driven indices to address specific scientific questions.

*Abstract submission*
On http://iugg2019montreal.com/abstract-submission.html latest by 
February 18.

Best regards,
Jürgen Matzka, Anatoly Soloviev, Jeff Love
