Layered Phenomena in the Mesopause Region (LPMR) workshop is being held at the University of Leeds from the 29th July to 1st August 2013. This meeting will continue a biennial series designed to advance understanding of phenomena which occur in the atmosphere between about 80 and 120 km. These phenomena include noctilucent clouds, metallic layers and aerosols produced by meteoric ablation, plasma layers, and perturbations caused by space weather.
The workshop will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of new results and ideas on topics ranging from the microphysics of mesospheric particles to the global processes controlling the state of the mesosphere. It is anticipated, based on previous meetings, that participants will include researchers involved in ground-based, rocket-borne and satellite measurements; laboratory studies; and modeling on all scales of this coupled dynamical, radiative, chemical, and plasma environment. A particular focus of the workshop will be to promote discussion of future directions for international, interdisciplinary cooperation.
The website (www.lpmr.leeds.ac.uk) is now open for registration and abstract submission. Please note the following dates:
Abstract submission deadline is 30th April 2013.
Early-bird registration and application for support of PhD students ends on 1st May 2013.
