Dear ISWI Participant:
Save the date!
SCOSTEP conducts quadrennial symposia to review the status of the field and
highlight current results in the field of solar terrestrial physics (STP) - an important
field that has important societal implications on Earth. The next quadrennial
symposium will be the 13th in the series (STP13) and will be held in Xi’An China (the
place of Terra Cotta Warriors) during October 12–17, 2014. STP13 will be all inclusive
on solar terrestrial physics from solar interior to Earth’s atmosphere. The sessions
will be organized along the connectivity chains between Sun and
Earth: electromagnetic chain (irradiance, affecting climate and flares causing space
weather), mass chain (mass ejections and fast solar wind leading to geomagnetic
storms), energetic particle chain causing space weather and atmospheric impact
(ozone depletion, etc). Additional topics will be included to cover all the aspects of
STP including new initiatives in space and on the ground.
Professor Chi Wang (National Space Science Center, Chinese Academy of Sciences)
and SCOSTEP/China have agreed to host STP13. The web site is now open and you
can register: http://stp13.csp.escience.cn.

(Thanks to Dr Nat Gopalswamy for sending it in.)
Best Wishes for the New Year,
