Scope The Earth's dynamical inner magnetosphere comprises several different plasma
populations including the radiation belts, ring current, plasmasphere and
ionosphere. Partly as a result of the rapid development of space weather
science, there has been a resurgence of interest in radiation belt dynamics in
the last decade culminating with the launch in August,2012 of the NASA
Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RPSP) mission. As well,the Japanese ERG satellite
program, designed to explore the radiation belts,has recently been approved by
JAXA with a planned launch date of December,2015. This session invites
submissions on the radiation belts and how they relate to the other plasma
populations in the inner magnetosphere. More generally,this session also
welcomes observational, theoretical,and simulation studies on any aspect of
inner magnetosphere physics.
