We solicit new research findings about the ionospheres, atmospheres and deep interiors of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. A special focus of our session is on the processes that reflect the interior rotation rate of Saturn. The sources of data to be covered in our session include the continuing observation by the Cassini spacecraft, now in its 10th year in orbit around Saturn. We also cover results of the recent Saturn Aurora Campaigns that coordinated observations by Cassini, the Hubble Space Telescope, and ground-based observatories. For Jupiter, we solicit long-term monitoring using ground- and space-
based telescopes, and studies in anticipation of the Juno spacecraft’s arrival in August 2016. Observations of Uranus and Neptune are also within in our session’s scope. In addition, we solicit modeling and theoretical presentations that address these observational findings.
