The terrestrial magnetosphere extracts energy from the dynamic solar wind, which propagates throughout the coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere-
In this meeting we aim to address and understand the key factors in controlling the propagation of energy in the coupled magnetosphere - ionosphere - thermosphere system. The meeting will bring together observational, modelling, and machine learning results, to understand how solar wind energy is partitioned within the MIT system and how this varies with the quantity of energy, type of solar wind driving, and pre-existing magnetospheric conditions. The afternoon session will include an open discussion focused specifically on the September 2017 geomagnetic storm and the multiple associated Space Weather impacts as a case study, and explore how this event informs our understanding of Space Weather energy pathways.
