Aiming to develop space-earth environmental research, the Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research (ISEE) is presenting an ISEE Award to a prominent research activity that is based on the ISEE Joint Research Program. ISEE seeks nominations for this new award.
ISELION2018 was held at Bandung, Indonesia on 5-9 March 2018. Forty students and young scientists joined this school from 7 countries of Egypt, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, and Vietnam.
The Arase satellite for the first time identified the pulsating aurora electrons scattered by chorus waves in the magnetosphere.
The ISEE/PSTEP international workshop on "The Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Workshop in Nagoya" was held at ISEE, Nagoya University from 27 November to 2 December 2017.
How does the upper atmosphere change by auroral breakup, this is an outstanding question in the Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere coupling study. We published a paper in JGR Space Physics analyzing data taken from a sounding rocket and ground-based instruments. The paper was chosen as an article of Eos Research Spotlight.
