Call for papers in special section "Coupled Feedback Mechanisms in the Magnetosphere-Ionosphere System"

From: Scott Thaller (scott.thaller at lasp.colorado.edu), Jean-Francois Ripoll, Toshi Nishimura, and Philip J Erickson

We are soliciting manuscript submissions to our special section in the Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science journal titled "Coupled Feedback Mechanisms in the Magnetosphere-Ionosphere System", which covers a broad range of topics related to magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, including but not limited to:

* advection/convection in the inner-magnetosphere and ionosphere;
* mesoscale convective subauroral phenomena, including STEVE, subauroral polarization streams (SAPS), subauroral ion drifts (SAID);
* SAR arcs;

* diffuse electron and proton aurora;

* discrete aurora;

* Poynting flux associated with steady convection, MHD waves, kinetic and inertial Alfvén waves, and the transport of energy into and out from the ionosphere;
* ring current ions and electrons, and injected plasma sheet particles;
* shielding of the inner-magnetosphere;
* field aligned currents;
* wave propagation between magnetosphere and ionosphere;
* ionospheric plasma outflows and upwelling;
* magnetospheric particle precipitation into the ionosphere;
* plasmasphere erosion, refilling, and the ionospheric footprint of the plasmasphere (e.g. trough, SED, plume, etc.);
* hemispheric asymmetries in the ionosphere, their causes and impact on the magnetosphere;
* wave-particle or wave-plasma interactions in the inner-magnetosphere, in particular those associated with precipitation and modification of ionospheric conductance.

The deadline for manuscript submission is May 24, 2021 and an abstract indicating the nature of the study is requested by December 31, 2020. The manuscript will be peer-reviewed and published online with free and open access.Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science is indexed in the Web of Science via the ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation index); all articles submitted via the journal will appear in Web of Science.  This special section in Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science is cross-listed in Frontiers in Physics, which has an Impact Factor of 2.638. Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science and Frontiers in Physics have Cite Scores of 2.5 and 2.3 respectively.

More information can be found on the special section website.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
