The Arctic: An AGU Joint Special Collection

Submit an article
Last updated:
24 August 2017
The Arctic has become the focus of many new investigations and studies across a number of disciplines. In many cases, this research is integrating diverse new data sets, observations, and modeling, and making connections among and across the biosphere, oceans, atmospheres, space, and geophysical environments. These papers include historical and new research on the Arctic and represent the following AGU journals: Earth’s Future, Earth and Space Science, Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems (G-Cubed), Geophysical Research Letters, Global Biogeochemical Cycles, JAMES (Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems), JGR: Oceans, JGR: Atmospheres, JGR: Solid Earth, JGR: Space Physics, JGR: Biogeosciences, JGR: Earth’s Surface, Reviews of Geophysics, Space Weather, and Water Resources Research.

2013 Equatorial Ionospheric Sounding Rocket Campaign from Kwajalein Atoll

Published:
28 April 2016

This special section provides a collection of papers regarding the 2013 Equatorial Ionospheric Sounding Rocket Campaign from Kwajalein Atoll. In April/May 2013, a total of four sounding rockets were launched from the Kwajalein Atoll as part of a joint campaign focused on equatorial ionospheric dynamics. The Equatorial Vortex Experiment (EVEX) was designed to provide simultaneous E and F Region measurements to examine the evening pre-reversal vortex and its role as a controlling factor in the development of equatorial spread-F.The Metal Oxide Samarium Cloud (MOSC) experiment provided comprehensive diagnostics of an artificially created ion plasma cloud through the release of samarium vapor in the upper atmosphere.

This special issue focuses the ionospheric effects on radio propagation. It focuses on all aspects of satellite signals observed on the ground and by receivers on-board satellites, in particular ionospheric electron content and scintillation effects. In this context, the submission of papers on the following topics are encouraged: recent studies and techniques on ionospheric tomography, occultation techniques, assimilation models, distributed arrays of ionospheric measurements, and space weather activities and satellite based navigation and communication systems.
