High Energy Particle Precipitation in the Atmosphere
SOLAR Influences for SPARC (Stratospheric Processes and their Role in Climate)

Welcome to the 7th International HEPPA-SOLARIS Workshop which will be held on 11-15 June 2018 at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center in Roanoke, Virginia, USA.

The workshop will focus on observational and modeling studies of the influences of solar radiation (SR) and energetic particle precipitation (EPP) on the atmosphere and climate. Broad topics to be covered include

  1. the causes and phenomenology of SR and EPP variability
  2. mechanisms by which SR and EPP forcing affect atmospheric composition and dynamics
  3. contributions of SR and EPP forcing to variations in space, atmosphere, and climate
  4. the current state of the art and outlook for relevant observations and models.

Sessions: There will be several plenary sessions and a poster session. All presentations will be short and informal with an emphasis on discussion.

Support for early career scientists: A limited amount of funding is available for students and scientists in need of assistance. See Student Support for application Instructions.
