As with last year, our session will only be as good as those who sign up to present in it. Knowing our community and friends, it will not disappoint! However, that means we need you to submit to our session to guarantee it's awesomeness. As we get confirmation from our invited presenters I'll add a new post stating who these headliners will be.
Below is a copy of our session abstract and information. Please feel free to also identify a presentation buddy in the comments to us. We understand that in either a talk or a poster, one can not address everything. If you and a conference friend would like to present comparative works, say one presenting on EMIC waves from Ampte, another from CRRES, another from THEMIS and perhaps even a fourth from Van Allen (Just think a comparative work on EMIC waves from four solar cycles), let us know! We can make sure to either put all your posters together, or give you talks that are back to back so that you guys could really compare the results, side by side.
Comparative studies of the storm-time inner magnetosphere
Session ID#: 7597
Session Description: Geomagnetic storms are manifestations of strong coupling between the solar wind and Earth’s magnetosphere which result in dynamic changes of the ring current and radiation belts environment. Different solar cycle phases are associated with a variety of solar wind structures that drive geomagnetic storms. This session’s goal is to investigate energetic particles’ and fields’ evolution in the inner magnetosphere during storms. We solicit contributions describing new insights from in situ, global and ground based observations, as well as simulations of storm-time intervals for Solar Cycle 24 (e.g. during ongoing missions such as the Van Allen Probes, THEMIS, TWINS, IBEX, GOES, Cluster). We also encourage contributors to compare to storms from previous solar cycles (e.g. the CRRES era). With the current solar cycle entering its declining phase, this session will consider solar cycle dependences and variations of storms and how energetic particle populations contribute to and are affected by them.
