Dear Colleagues

I am pleased to announce that there is a special issue on the joint 19th International EISCAT Symposium and 46th Annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods, that took place in August 2019.  The deadline for submissions is 1st April 2020


The intent of this special issue is two-fold:

1) A unified record of work presented at the joint symposium

2) An opportunity for others who were not able to attend the meeting, but have completed work related to (or even inspired by) the meeting and the topics covered therein to publish their work alongside their colleagues.

Overall this will provide a snapshot of the state of the art in both EISCAT (and general Incoherent Scatter Radar) science and Atmospheric studies using optics.

The joint meeting covered a range of science areas that can be addressed by EISCAT and/or optical techniques:
Auroral physics, magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere coupling, space weather impacts, polar cap dynamics,
Mesopheric dynamics and chemistry, the D-region, airglow, noctilucent clouds and meteors,
Active experiments and plasma physics,
Aerosols and clouds, transient luminous events and atmospheric electricity.

In addition there was a session dedicated to novel instruments and methods, including EISCAT 3D
and optical instruments.

We welcome submissions on all of these topics. As stated above it is intended that this provide a snapshot of the
state of the art in EISCAT and Optical research and as such this call is open to all colleagues
working in this area, even if you could not attend the joint meeting.  As long as your work is related
to EISCAT and/or Atmospheric research using optics you are welcome to submit to this Special

Please follow the standard submission process and when you submit your paper, you will be presented with a question as to whether it should be part of the special issue.

Your manuscript will be subject to the same, high level of peer review that you would expect from an 'ordinary' submission to Annales.  When it is accepted for publication, it will be published on the website as soon as the process is complete, no waiting for later submissions.  All papers will be tagged and have links on a dedicated web page so that they can be viewed as a collection.

I look forward to seeing your submissions!

Best regards
Andrew  Kavanagh
