South auroral oval and polar rain simulated in laboratory using the Planeterrella experiment (J. Lilensten et al., UJF/CNRS, Grenoble, France, online). The Planeterrella was redesigned after K. Birkeland’s original terrella experiments, which in the 1900s helped him unveil the mechanisms at the origin of polar aurorae. A magnetised aluminium sphere is placed in a vacuum chamber. An electric current is then established between the sphere (anode) and the electrode at the top of the figure (cathode) producing emissions in the visible and UV ranges.

The public call for sessions for the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2012 has been issued. The EGU GA 2012 will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) from 22 April to 27 April 2012. The details are below, the web page to visit to submit sessions is Call for Sessions page of the EGU General Assembly 2012 website.
We hereby invite you, from now until 16 Sep 2011, to take an active part in organizing the scientific programme of the conference.
Please suggest (i) new sessions with conveners and description and (ii) modifications to the skeleton programme sessions. Explore the Programme Groups (PGs) on the left hand side, when making suggestions. Study those sessions that already exist and put your proposal into the PG that is most closely aligned with the proposed session’s subject area.
If the subject area of your proposal is strongly aligned with two or more PGs, co-organization is possible and encouraged between PGs. Only put your session proposal into one PG, and you will be able to indicate PGs that you believe should be approached for co-organization.
If you have questions about the appropriateness of a specific session topic, please contact the Officers for the specific EGU2012 Programme Group. To suggest Union Symposia, Great Debates, Townhall Meetings or Short Courses, please contact the Programme Committee Chair (Gert-Jan Reichart).
In case any questions arise, please contact EGU2012 at Copernicus.
