This workshop aims to focus mainly on the scientific challenges in ionospheric plasma bubble forecasting, and organize in depth discussion by eminent scientists working on ionospheric irregularities all over the world.
The topics include,
？ The coupling processes in the atmosphere-ionosphere and ionosphere- magnetosphere systems that affect the seeding and development of equatorial plasma bubbles.
？ The current status, challenges and future directions in ionospheric plasma bubble forecasting.
？ The techniques for remote sensing the ionosphere such as coherent and incoherent scatter radars, coordinated campaigns to investigate the variability of low latitude ionosphere using multiple instruments, and plasma bubble model simulations.
？ Novel optical and radio measurements of plasma bubbles, such as airglow imaging observations from satellites and ground, and total electron content and scintillation observations using beacon radio waves transmitted from low-earth orbits. Study of 3D tomography of plasma density is also welcome.
？ The social impacts of plasma bubbles on space-based high technology
To achieve the intended goals of the workshop we invite key scientists who have been working as pioneers on different aspects of the field, for their presentation and participation in open discussion during the workshop. A special issue will be published based on the workshop.
