Call for Papers: Space Climate 5, Oulu, Finland
The Space Climate 5 symposium will be held in Oulu, Finland, 15th to 19th June 2013, just before the summer solstice.
Space Climate is an interdisciplinary science that deals with the long-term change in the Sun, and its effects in the heliosphere and in the near-Earth environment, including the atmosphere and climate. A special focus will be on studies of the causes, consequences and implications of the present, unusually low solar activity since solar cycle 23 that, most likely, indicates the imminent end of the Modern Grand Maximum of solar activity.
Other topics include solar dynamo, solar irradiance variations, solar wind, geomagnetic field and activity, cosmic rays and cosmogenic isotopes, and solar effects on different layers of the atmosphere and on local and global climate, as well as possible solar effects on human health and on the development of human cultures.
Revised abstract deadline: 15th March 2013.
Deadlines for special-price accommodation and for reduced registration fee are also 15th March 2013!
