Dear Colleagues,

We ask that you consider contributing an abstract to a Fall 2019 AGU
session on plasma convection in the subauroral ionosphere and coupled inner
magnetosphere (details given below). The link for submitting abstracts is
https://www2.agu.org/Fall-Meeting/Pages/Submit-an-abstract/ and the
submission deadline is July 31.

Session Title:
SM034 - Plasma Convection in the Subauroral Ionosphere and Coupled Inner

Session Description:
Plasma convection in the subauroral region is influenced by different
driving forces such as the neutral winds, penetration electric fields, and
polarization electric fields (SAPS). Ionospheric conductivity plays an
important role in modulating the relative importance of these different
drivers. The electric fields interact with the inner magnetosphere,
affecting plasma dynamics over a broad energy range. Significant increase
in observations from several instruments, such as Van Allen Probes, AMPERE,
GPS TEC, and radars, as well as advances in modeling techniques, such as
self-consistent coupling between the ionosphere, thermosphere and
magnetosphere, provide an outstanding opportunity to study the subauroral
region. This session solicits theoretical, numerical, and/or experimental
contributions that address the (1) physics of
convection in the subauroral ionosphere and/or conjugate inner
magnetosphere, (2) influence of ionospheric conductivity and the neutral
winds in modulating convection, and (3) significance of convection in terms
of plasma dynamics across the energy spectrum.
