Dear Colleagues,

The General Assembly and Scientific Symposium of the International Union of 
Radio Science (URSI GASS) to be held in Rome, 28 August - 4 September, 2021, 
(https://www.ursi2021.org/) will take place in hybrid form, allowing both on-
site and remote participation.   

We would like to call your attention to the session of Commission G: Radio 
Studies of Mid and Low Latitude Aeronomy. The description of this session is 
as follows:

Contrary to the low latitude ionosphere, the mid latitude region has been 
considered as quiet region with an easily predictable behavior. However, 
recently, the dynamics of the mid latitude ionosphere have been deeply 
studied to observe and model the development of plasma instabilities (MSTIDs,
Sporadic E-layer, etc). Moreover, the effect of MIT coupling and of the 
disturbances due to the interaction with the high latitude ionosphere (PPEF) 
and with the neutral atmosphere (DD), make the mid latitude ionosphere a 
complex system that deserves to be deeply investigated. This session welcome 
presentations dealing with the investigation of low and mid latitude 
instabilities using active and passive radio instruments during quiet and 
disturbed geomagnetic conditions. Studies on magnetic conjugate points by 
means of ground based and space born instrument network are encouraged. This 
includes E and F region coupling, computer simulation and modeling, 
climatological studies, ionospheric irregularities, neutral atmosphere 
processes and wave phenomena. The session also seeks presentations that 
highlight the importance of install and maintain regional continuous network 
of multi-sensors stations to improve the capabilities of modelling small and 
large scale plasma instabilities at low and mid latitudes.

The deadline for submitting a paper is January 31, 2021, and Notification of 
acceptance is March 15, 2021. We look forward to receiving your contributions 
and thank you very much for your attention.


Conveners: M. Muella, C. Cesaroni, and C. Olwendo
