Scope The whole atmosphere concept is becoming the key for the next breakthrough in solar-terrestrial science. This international session focuses on physical/chemical processes occurring in the mesosphere, thermosphere, and ionosphere (MTI) at all latitudes. Both quiet and disturbed states in response to lower atmospheric forcing or solar forcing are important for the understanding of the MTI region and its coupling to other regions. Presentations on observational and model results, and new observation techniques related to the MTI coupling studies are solicited in this session.
