The Final Proceedings for 3rd IAGAICMA Workshop on Vertical Coupling in the AtmosphereIonosphere 18 September 2006 - 22 September 2006. The 3rd IAGAICMA Workshop will focus primarily on those forcing mechanisms that originate in the lower atmosphere on their transmission into the atmosphere-ionosphere system and the ways in which these are influenced by changing solar geomagnetic and anthropogenic drivers. The workshop will address recent studies on atmospheric coupling with special emphasis on the following topics i coupling by mean circulation atmospheric tides and planetary and gravity waves ii coupling by transport of atmospheric constituents and feedback of chemistry on dynamics iii electrodynamic coupling and atmospheric electricity iv modelling utilized for understanding the coupling processes. The workshop aims to stimulate the integration of observations and models to provide physical explanations for and new insights into the range of phenomena that result from coupling and feedbacks in the atmosphere-ionosphere system. The symposium will provide the next opportunity for the international research community to review the progress made so far and suggest some future directions in the investigation of all significant couplings dynamic and electrodynamic radiative transport and chemistry of atmospheric constituents trigger mechanisms and feedback processes.
