  Call for Papers for ""Fifteen Years of THEMIS Mission”

  Open for Submissions: 1 April 2022

  Submission Deadline: 31 January 2023

  Special Collection Organizers:

  Vassilis Angelopoulos, University of California, Los Angeles

  The THEMIS mission, launched in 2007 and then bifurcated into THEMIS (in Earth orbit) and ARTEMIS (in lunar orbit), comprises five identical spacecraft (probes) and a network of ground-based magnetometers and all-sky-cameras. Although THEMIS was originally focused on the location and nature of substorm onset in the Earth’s magnetotail, it now explores a much broader range of space plasma topics: from the radiation belts and magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling to solar wind-magnetosphere interactions and the lunar plasma environment. THEMIS and ARTEMIS help quantify the solar wind-magnetosphere energy cycle, including energy entry into the magnetosphere, storage within the magnetotail, release via charged particle acceleration, and injection into the inner magnetosphere. The two ARTEMIS probes contribute to our understanding of the lunar environment, revealing the physics of plasma interactions with the Moon's surface, crustal magnetic fields, exosphere, and wake. THEMIS and ARTEMIS also provide context to and connections between other magnetospheric missions, enabling a global framework of assets, the Heliophysics System Observatory. This special JGR collection covers the wide range of topics where THEMIS and ARTEMIS spacecraft and associated ground-based networks provide measurements crucial for our understanding of space weather phenomena and fundamental plasma physics. Studies including THEMIS/ARTEMIS conjugate measurements with low-altitude satellites, ground-based observatories, and other magnetospheric missions, as well as simulations driven by such measurements are also encouraged.



  Call for abstracts to PRE 9, Dublin, 26-28 Sept. 2022

  From: Georg Fischer (georg.fischer@oeaw.ac.at)

  The 9th International Workshop on Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions (PRE 9) deals with the most recent developments in the study of non-thermal radio emissions from the Sun, the radio planets, the heliosphere, and from extrasolar sources like exoplanets or brown dwarfs. Special emphasis is put on current and future spacecraft missions (Juno, Solar Orbiter, JUICE), but also new developments in ground-based radio telescopic observations (e.g. with LOFAR) will be matters of discussion.

  PRE 9 is the continuation of a series of workshops that took place in and near Graz/Austria in 1984, 1987, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2005, 2010, and 2016. However, PRE 9 has now moved to Dublin/Ireland! 

  For more information please visit our website at https://pre2022.dias.ie/. The abstract deadline is on 3 June 2022, and the workshop will take place 26-28 September in Dublin. It will be primarily an in-person meeting with some hybrid options. The organizing committee is looking forward to your abstract submission.

  13-1th SCOSTEP/PRESTO Online Seminar

  Title: Mesoscales and their Contribution to the Global Response: A Focus on the Magnetotail Transition Region and Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling

  Author: Dr. Christine Gabrielse

  Affiliation: The Aerospace Corporation, USA

  Date/time: May 18 (Thu), 2022, 22:00-23:00 UT

  Zoom Registration URL (pre-registration is necessary):



  How do mesoscale phenomena contribute to the global response of the system?

  This question has risen to the forefront of the space physics community in recent

  years, and has been the topic of a Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) Focus

  Group since 2017. Specifically, community members have been studying if and

  how much mesoscale transport in the tail contributes to the more global response

  at the dipole-stretched transition region with respect to magnetic flux and

  dipolarization, particle transport and injections, and the substorm current wedge.

  How this relates to the coupled ionosphere is also an important consideration.

  This talk will summarize some results that were compiled to answer this question,

  and poses more questions to the audience to consider with regards to further

  understanding how mesoscale phenomena contribute to the system global response.

  The Ionosphere, Thermosphere, Mesosphere Physics Laboratory (“ITM Lab”) at NASA Goddard seeks to hire two full-time researchers studying aspects of ITM dynamics, coupling, and chemistry:

  1)    A senior (GS-15 – roughly equivalent to full professor) researcher with experience in developing whole atmosphere models and using them to address critical problems in ITM science. This is a “permanent” position, meaning it comes with civil service tenure after a one-year probation period. The application period for this position will be open May 20, 2022 through May 24, 2022. Applications are through USAJobs, and the vacancy announcement is located here:


  2)    An early-career (GS-13 – roughly equivalent to assistant professor) researcher with experience in using satellite and ground-based observations to address critical problems in ITM science. This is a six-year “term” position that has the potential to be converted to a tenured position. The application period for this position will be open from May 20, 2022 through May 26, 2022. Applications are through USAJobs, and the vacancy announcement is located here: 


  The ITM Lab, formed in 2018, consists of ~45 government and university researchers, and addresses a wide range of problems in the middle and upper atmospheres and ionospheres of Earth and other planets. Our lab cultivates strong collaborations with the Solar, Heliospheric, Geospace, and Space Weather Labs at NASA Goddard, providing great potential for interdisciplinary collaborations in Heliophysics. The ITM Lab also enjoys strong collaborations with NASA Goddard’s Earth Science, Planetary Science, and Astrophysics Divisions.
