  Information - ST7 Solar, heliospheric and atmospheric coupling with near-Earth space

Event Information
Solar radiation and energetic charged particles provide mechanisms which are responsible for causing changes in the Earth's thermosphere, ionosphere, mesosphere and stratosphere due to changing conditions on the Sun, in interplanetary space, in the magnetosphere and in the troposphere. The understanding of the short- and long-term effects of these mechanisms is important for applications and fundamental science: Can these mechanisms have direct or indirect consequences on technological systems, on human health and the Earth's climate ?

This session is concerned with the influence of the heliosphere on the different layers of the atmosphere, as well as effects of thunderstorms and lightning on the middle atmosphere. These effects include changes to the chemistry of the stratosphere and troposphere, cloud microphysics, the distribution of dust, aerosols, clouds, rainfall, etc. and the effects of atmospheric electrodynamics on the global electric circuit in the Earth's atmosphere. New modelling, data analyses, observations and instrumentation, as well as papers on applications are solicited.
