AGU SESSION PS1850 – DYNAMICS OF THE IO-JUPITER SYSTEM (P & SPA CO-SPONSORED)

AGU Fall Meeting
December 15-19, 2014
San Francisco, CA

Abstract submission deadline: August 6, 2014

A large coordinated observing campaign in late 2013 and early 2014 has probed the Io-Jupiter system at multiple wavelengths using more than a dozen ground- and space-based facilities, including the EUV spectroscope Hisaki, HST, Chandra, Apache Point, Keck and IRTF. These concurrent observations examined Io’s volcanic activity, atmosphere and plasma torus variability, as well as Jupiter’s atmosphere, synchrotron emission and auroral dynamics. This session aims to interconnect these observations in order to explore the interactions between Io, Jupiter, the magnetosphere and the surrounding solar wind. Integrating the products of these diverse measurements will help develop a better understanding of how mass and energy are transferred through the system on different timescales. We invite observers from this campaign to report their results and also welcome presentations of relevant models
and additional data sets.
