Slide1: The International Heliophysical Year (IHY) in Brazil Alisson Dal Lago1 and Walter D. Gonzalez1 1INPE - Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais / National Institute for Space Research Five Coordinated Investigation Programs (CIPs) have been proposed by scientists from brazilian institutions: 13 - Jean-Pierre Raulin: High Energy Processes and Dynamics of the Low Solar Atmosphere During Explosive Events 14 - J.-P. Raulin, E. Correia, V.S. Makhmutov: Ionospheric effects of the solar activity variations, solar flares, lightnings and energetic particle precipitations 16 - Luis Eduardo Antunes Vieira: Investigation of the of the cosmic rays modulation of the cloud properties and net radiative flux in the southern hemisphere magnetic anomaly (SHMA) 18 - Emília Correia: Spatial and temporal TEC characterization of the ionosphere in the South Atlantic Magnetic Anomaly 37 - Walter D. Gonzalez: Interplanetary causes of intense magnetic storms For further details, please visit our website: http://www.alage.org/IHYLA/cip.html Proposed CIPs IHY Inauguration Ceremony – February 19, 2007 WEBSITE: http://www.alage.org/IHYLA/ihyla.html IHY in Brazil IHY Brazilian activities are being planned and conducted in colaboration with Latin-American Institutions.
