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.
· The social impacts of plasma bubbles on space-based high technology.
