Call for Papers for “Energetic Electron Loss and its Impacts on the Atmosphere”
Submission acceptance begins: 1 September 2015
Submission deadline: 29 January 2016
Guest Editor: Mike Liemohn
Organizers: Robyn Millan, Pekka Verronen and Alexa Halford
Manuscripts are invited for a joint special issue between JGR-Space Physics and JGR-Atmospheres on recent advances in energetic (~10 keV - 10 MeV) electron loss in the magnetosphere and the impacts of energetic precipitation on the atmosphere.
We welcome submissions on the study of processes that cause energetic precipitation and quantify the relative importance of precipitation versus magnetopause loss for the radiation belts and ring current.
There is evidence that energetic precipitation may have significant impacts on the atmosphere through the production of odd hydrogen (HOx) and odd nitrogen (NOx), which can affect ozone chemistry, and lead to modification of atmospheric dynamics in the polar regions.
This special issue welcomes observational studies that use historical or recent data sets as well as theoretical studies of electron loss and its impacts.
Manuscripts should be submitted through the JGR: Atmospheres or JGR: Space Physics web sites. For additional information please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
