Session - Monitoring, Modelling and Predicting Space Radio Weather

M. Messerotti, V. Pierrard, S. Pohjolainen

Space radio weather refers to the physical state of the Heliosphere, i.e. the Sun, the Interplanetary Medium, the planetary magnetospheres and atmospheres, as observed in the radio domain of the electromagnetic spectrum. Radio emissions from plasmas are originated by a large variety of nonlinear processes that operate at different physical conditions and involve particle and wave interactions. Furthermore, magnetic fields play a significant role in both the generation and the propagation of radio waves. Hence, monitoring and modelling the radio signatures of plasma processes constitute powerful diagnostic means to identify the triggering phenomenon and the plasma state at the source as well as the plasma characteristics along the propagation path. A complex zoo of radio emissions has been observed in the different environments, e.g. electron beams are accelerated in solar flares and their radio signatures are solar type III radio bursts, propagating hydrodynamic shocks in the solar corona can originate solar type II radio bursts, and electron beams accelerated by CME shock fronts are associated with interplanetary type III radio bursts. Radio emissions also characterise processes occurring in planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres. Furthermore, solar radio emissions can impact on radio communications as increased background noise can severely affect GNSS localisation in the whole sunlit hemisphere. Hence, monitoring, modelling and predicting radio emissions are key operational components for any consolidated Space Weather workflow.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts dealing with one or more of the following topics focussed on Space Weather applications:

- Monitoring techniques and instruments for radio signatures;
- Models of radio emission processes and propagation effects;
- Prediction techniques using radio emission.
