The 42nd Annual Apatity Seminar “Physics of Auroral Phenomena”

From March 11 to March 15, 2019, the 42nd annual Apatity seminar “Physics of Auroral Phenomena” was held at the Polar Geophysical Institute (Apatity). More than a hundred people (including 40 from other cities of Russia, about half of whom were young scientists) from 17 research institutes and universities took an active part in the seminar. Among the speakers were four representatives of foreign research institutes (from China, Finland and Norway). At the seminar 71 oral and 52 poster presentations were presented. The seminar was dealt with the discussion of the latest results obtained by Russian and foreign scientists in the field of research of geophysical processes, most intensely manifested at the latitudes of the auroral and subauroral zones.

The seminar was held in the following sections:

1. Storms and substorms
2. Fields, currents, particles in the magnetosphere
3. Waves, wave-particle interaction
4. Sun, solar wind, cosmic rays
5. Ionosphere and upper atmosphere
6. Lower atmosphere, ozone
7. Heliobiosphere

As part of the cultural program of the 42nd Apatity Seminar “Physics of Auroral Phenomena”, the already traditional concert was held, in which the youth choir “Victoria” under the leadership of Victoria Filin presents a large program.

Excursions to the Kirovsk Museum, to the Snow Village and the Mysterious Forest were also held.

The seminar was financially supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research at the expense of the grant No. 19-05-20045.
