Micro- and Mesoscale Phenomena in Space Plasmas Conference



A detailed assessment of many of the important mesoscale and microscale processes in geospace was the purpose of the Chapman Conference on “Micro- and Mesoscale Phenomena in Space Plasmas,” held at Kauai, Hawaii, from February 11 to 16. The practical goals of the conference were to facilitate the exchange of information on small- and medium-scale phenomena in space plasmas and to increase awareness of the needs of experimentalists and theorists, with a certain focus toward the ongoing Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) and Space Physics Theory programs. The conference was organized by Maha Ashour-Abdalla (UCLA), Tom Chang (MIT), and Paul Dusenbery (U. Colorado).
