Special Issue on STP-15 in Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics Journal

We are pleased to announce the Special Issue of SCOSTEP’s 15th Quadrennial Solar-Terrestrial Physics Symposium (STP-15) in Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics (JASTP). The Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) runs Predictability of the variable Solar-Terrestrial Coupling (PRESTO) program in 2020-2024. The PRESTO program (https://scostep.org/presto/) identifies predictability of the variable solar-terrestrial coupling performance metrics through modeling, measurements, and data analysis and to strengthen the communication between scientists and users. The STP-15 symposium was held on February 21-25, 2022, via full online with the host of Indian Institute of Geomagnetism. Eminent scientists from solar, magnetospheric, ionospheric and atmospheric physics communities were gathered to discuss and deliberate on the cutting-edge sciences pertaining to STP, especially the coupling across disciplines to understand predictability of variable solar-terrestrial coupling. The symposium has three sessions corresponding to the three PRESTO Pillars, as well as overarching topics in the sun-earth connection, space weather prediction and implementation, modelling, database, data analysis tools, new ground and space-based initiatives for solar-terrestrial physics. A special session on geomagnetism - the connecting link between sun and earth was also held. This special issue welcomes scientific results on all these topics of solar-terrestrial physics and PRESTO achievements.
