Abstract submissions open for special Swarm session at 2018 AGU Fall Meeting

26 July 2018

We invite abstract submissions for the "New and Emerging Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere Coupling Science from Remote and In Situ Spacecraft Measurements: The First 5 Years of Swarm" session at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting which will take place from 10 to 14 December in Washington D.C.

The Swarm constellation recently became a quartet with the addition of the CASSIOPE Enhanced Polar Outflow Probe (e-POP); which is referred to as Swarm-E. Since their launch in the Fall of 2013, Swarm and Swarm-E have formed the vanguard of remote and in-situ diagnostics of the coupled Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere (MIT) system. As a quartet, Swarm will enable new insight into MIT coupling processes and wave-particle interactions across multiple spatiotemporal scales.

We encourage contributions focusing on the major theoretical, modelling, and experimental MIT science results from the first five years of Swarm and Swarm-E, as well as contributions that identify new and emerging MIT science targets for the mission. Papers regarding MIT coupling processes at all latitudes are welcome. In particular, we seek contributions that focus on multi-point, multi-instrument (including ground-based instruments), and/or multi-spacecraft measurements, including those from other spacecraft missions.

The abstract deadline is 1 August 2018 at 23:59 EDT so act soon to submit your paper.
