URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (GASS2020)

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to inform you that the next URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (GASS2020) will take place in Rome on Aug. 29 - Sept. 5, 2020. Please visit the web page at https://www.ursi2020.org/.

Call for papers is now open (deadline 31 January 2020) and I would like to draw your attention to the session G10 Radio Studies of Mid and Low Latitude Aeronomy.

Conveners: Marcio Muella, Claudio Cesaroni, Joseph Olwendo

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 welcomes 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.

Please note the URSI GASS2020 include the possibility to submit Extended Abstracts, Summary Papers (select the option to include the paper in IEEEXplore or not) and Student Paper Competition Full Papers. Please see details here: https://www.ursi2020.org/author-info-abstract-submission/.

Looking forward to seeing you in Rome.
