Dear Colleagues,

First of all, we would like to thank everyone who contributed to our
session "Next Gen Thermospheric Wind Observations" in 2019 CEDAR Workshop.
In the same vein, we are going to convene the following session at the AGU
Fall Meeting, 9-13 December 2019 in San Francisco CA.

*Session Title:* SA012 - Next Generation Thermospheric Winds

*Section:* SPA-Aeronomy

*Session Link:* https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/81614

*Conveners:* Sovit Khadka/ New Jersey Institute of Technology, Patrick
Dandenault/ Johns Hopkins University, Andrew J Gerrard/ New Jersey
Institute of Technology

*Session Description:* Thermospheric neutral winds play a decisive role in
controlling various geospace processes, the coupling between different
layers in the upper atmosphere, the redistribution of plasma and neutral
composition, the generation of waves and density structures, etc. These
phenomena perturb the space environment/medium and can severely impact
modern space-based technologies. Measurements and understandings of
thermospheric wind dynamics over a full diurnal cycle are required to
resolve these issues. The availability of space-based (NASA-GOLD, ICON,
etc.) and ground-based observations creates new opportunities for
multi-disciplinary and multi-instrument collaborations to advance the
current understandings of the thermospheric wind dynamics, and to validate
existing wind models. This session welcomes contributions on all aspects of
research aimed to address the current challenges associated with our
understanding of thermospheric winds, as well as efforts for advancing our
understanding such winds across local, regional, and global-scales from
theoretical, observational, and modeling perspectives.

Please consider submitting an abstract of your research work to above
session. Abstract submission is now open and the deadline for abstract
submission is July 31, 2019.
