  Information - ST13 Cross-scale coupling between inner magnetospheric plasma populations in the solar system (co-listed in PS)

Event Information
Dynamics of plasma populations in the inner magnetosphere: plasmasphere, ring current, and radiation belts are closely related to the solar wind conditions (Earth) and internal interchange processes (giant planets) and are strongly coupled by means of electromagnetic fields, currents and wave-particle interactions. We would like to invite contributions (theoretical, modeling and observational) that provide insight into the processes which determine the evolution of plasma populations and various feedback mechanisms which operate in the inner planetary magnetosphere. The session will provide a forum for discussion on a number of topics which are central to the understanding of the inner magnetospheric environment: coupling between the plasmasphere, ring current and radiation belts; coupling between plasma populations and magnetic field, cross scale and energy coupling in the inner magnetosphere, and the influence of the solar wind and interchange instability on the inner magnetospheric plasma populations. Papers suggesting new methods and ideas in preparation for new and upcoming missions: THEMIS, RBSP, and Juno as well as analysis of current and past missions such as Cluster, CRRES, and Cassini are also welcome.
