Session ST2.5: Identifying Dominant Acceleration, Loss, and Transport 

Processes Affecting The Dynamics of Electron and Proton Radiation Belts



While electrons and protons experience the same radial diffusion from 

field fluctuations, their dynamic behaviour in the radiation belts 

differs mainly because of local wave-particle interactions for electrons 

and charge exchange for protons. Comparing dynamics of protons and 

electrons should help us understanding better the balance between 

acceleration and loss processes during magnetic storms as well as during 

quiet times.


This session shall focus on recent studies of the effects of 

wave-particle interactions, radial transport, charge exchange, etc., on 

the Earth and other planetary radiation belts. We encourage the 

submission of papers on related modelling, studies revisiting previous 

missions, ongoing missions such as Van Allen Probes, THEMIS, MMS, and 

future missions such as ERG and small satellites /cubesat missions and 

Juno that will explore high latitude radiation environment on Jupiter.

Abstract submission is now open, the deadline is 13 January 2016.

From: Jan Lastovicka <jla - at - ufa.cas.cz>




Dear colleagues,




Issue 57(1) of Advances in Space Research (ASR - COSPAR official journal) published on paper in January 1, 2016,will remain available free-of-charge without any paid subscription to this journal for a complete year, courtesy of Elsevier, at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/02731177/57/1. This issue contains a couple of papers related to space weather.  



I remind you that ASR publishes 24 issues per year (2 issues of 20 or more papers each per month), that accepted papers appear online with a DOI in “accepted proofs” only a couple of days after acceptance and that this journal accepts electronic supplements and supports OpenAccess. Review process takes on average about 9 weeks before the first decision is sent back to the authors (4 weeks to find proper reviewers and 5 weeks to get their report and make a first decision). Published articles are referenced in ISI Web of Science, Scopus and many other scientific databases. This journal also accepts Special Issues. Its Impact Factor has been steadily increasing in the past few years and is now 1.385.  Submissions can be done electronically at any time using the EES System (http://ees.elsevier.com/asr). Published articles can be found online at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/02731177.
