Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to this special issue on "Symposium on the Future of Heliospheric Science: From Geotail and Beyond".
Geotail is a joint NASA-ISAS satellite launched in July 1992 to investigate various physical phenomena in the Earth's magnetosphere, especially in the magnetotail region. The satellite was terminated in November 2022 due to the malfunction of the data recorder. In March 2023, we will hold the “Symposium on the Future of Heliospheric Science: From Geotail and Beyond” to present the results obtained by this satellite and to discuss what kind of missions and research should be conducted in the future of magnetospheric physics by expanding on these results. The number of presentations is expected to be 30-40. The proceedings of this symposium will be collected and we hope to publish them as a special issue of EPS.
