Freitag, 21. Juli 2017…”The main focus of this Priority Programme is to quantify terrestrial transport mechanisms and solar-terrestrial interactions. […] In order to improve the understanding of interconnections and coupling processes, proposers are encouraged to bring in further sources of information such as data from other satellite missions, ground-based observations, and empirical and physical models.
In the second phase, we particularly encourage multi-disciplinary approaches and projects that clearly link between two or more subtopics of the programme. Also, applications by university groups are encouraged. The Priority Programme’s subtopics are:the geomagnetic field: study of its dynamics and evolution; analysing its different sources, including the Earth’s core, mantle induction, lithosphere, magnetosphere, ionosphere and oceanic currents; data analyses, empirical modelling, and geodynamo simulationsthe gravity field: global variations of mass and mass balances, interaction and exchange mechanisms (hydrological cycle, ice melting in the polar regions, sea-level fluctuations, groundwater, relationship with anthropogenic influences, tides of oceans and atmosphere), length-of-day variation, and high-resolution models of the gravity fieldthe ionosphere/magnetosphere system: E-region ionospheric current systems and field-aligned currents at higher latitudes, coupling of the ionosphere and magnetosphere, contributions of ionospheric and field-aligned currents to the energy budget of the atmosphere, near-Earth verification of magnetospheric currentsthe thermosphere/ionosphere system: quantification of solar contributions (EUV, solar wind) and influence of the lower and middle atmosphere (waves and tides) on the variability of the upper atmosphere, interaction between ionospheric plasma and neutral gas, E- and F-region ionospheric currents from high to low latitudes, understanding and predicting ionospheric and atmospheric irregularities from equatorial to polar latitudes including signal disturbances for communication and navigation systems”…
