IAGA Division II - Aeronomic Phenomena

Division II aims at improving the understanding of the dynamics, chemistry, energetics and electrodynamics of the atmosphere-ionosphere system as well as the coupling processes by extensive observations, sophisticated data analysis techniques and simulations with whole atmosphere-ionosphere models.
