Teacher/Group Leader Information:The Sky Above—Earth's Upper Atmosphere

Solar Week always devotes a day -- and online discussion time -- to a special solar-related theme. This time (spring 2018), it’s Earth's upper atmosphere, which includes the ionosphere.  Our essential question is: What is the unique role of the ionosphere in the Sun-Earth system?

In addition to our usual wonderful and knowledgeable solar scientists answering your questions about the Sun-Earth connection, we've invited some ionosphere experts to join our panel during the week of March 19-23. And we have provided some helpful links to a couple of websites which provide information, videos and activities on the ionosphere.
