Understanding of the Climate and Weather of the Sun-Earth System (CAWSES II) - SCOSTEP’s International Program (2009 – 2013)

CAWSES (Climate And Weather of the Sun-Earth System)-II is an international program conducted from 2009-2013 by the Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP). CAWSES-II aims to significantly enhance our understanding of the space environment and its impact on our life and society. This collection of review articles summarizes the research activities carried out under CAWSES II .
The papers are based on presentations at the recent International CAWSES-II Symposium held on November 18-22, 2013 at Nagoya University, Japan.
