Special Session SS28 3 – 6 April 2018 (TBD)

The causes and consequences of space weather

Aims and scope

Space weather is an overarching term that covers a wide discipline including solar, interplanetary and solar-terrestrial physics. The source of space weather may be solar flares, co-rotating interaction regions, coronal mass ejections, solar energetic particles or more routine solar wind, all of which vary on time scales of the solar cycle and longer and may in turn be driven by interior processes that can be studied by techniques such as helioseismology. However, seemingly similar solar drivers can produce vastly different magnetospheric and ionospheric effects, meaning that both the solar driver and current state of the magnetosphere-ionosphere system must be understood before we can fully understand the coupled Sun-solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere system. We solicit contributions from this wide-ranging field, with specific focus on understanding multiple parts of this coupled system. We will also accept posters for those who do not wish to present talks.
