SM018:
Toward a comprehensive understanding of the storm-time geospace





Session ID#: 26466

Session Description:
Despite decades of research, multitude of spacecraft missions and advances in theory and simulations, comprehensive understanding of the storm-time geospace is still elusive. We know that many regions and plasma populations of the magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere get activated during disturbed conditions, e.g., the ring current, high- and mid-latitude ionosphere electrodynamics, ionospheric mass outflow, magnetotail convection, injections, and substorms. Each of these processes and, in some cases, their coupling has been a subject of vigorous investigation. However, comprehensive understanding requires studying them as parts of a complex interconnected system with strong feedback loops between all of the components. This session solicits presentations that attempt such a systems-level exploration of the storm-time geospace with the emphasis on the interconnectedness of the components. All types of investigations are welcome, including data analysis, theory, modeling, and particularly approaches that utilize these methods in a concerted fashion.
