Whole Atmosphere Modelling Workshop

Developments in the context of Space Weather


This workshop is intended to focus on the scientific and technical issues associated with developing atmospheric models that extend from the ground up to and including the thermosphere at about 600km. The goal of this effort is to develop models for improved ionospheric and thermospheric space weather forecasting, which include comprehensive representations of forcing from the lower atmosphere, as well as solar and geomagnetic forcing. Themes of the workshop shall include:

  • Atmospheric models: capabilities and limitations
  • Developing whole atmosphere model building blocks
  • Dynamic drivers of the thermosphere and ionosphere
  • Data assimilation and model validation
  • Ionosphere and magnetosphere interactions
