The Earth accepts vast input of energy and material from the Sun. The Earth's environment is maintained by the balance between their inputs and outputs. It is therefore important to study energy and mass transport on the Earth. This is an international session that discusses studies of the coupling processes in the Sun-Earth system based on the project "Study of coupling processes in solar-terrestrial system" that was approved by the Master Plan 2014/2017 of Science Council of Japan. We continue proposing the project to the Master Plan 2020. The facilities and networks included are Equatorial MU Radar (EMU) in Indonesia to study the whole equatorial atmosphere, the EISCAT_3D radar system in northern Scandinavia to study detailed structures and elementary processes of the magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling in the polar region, and global networks of various ground-based instruments and observation data. We will show the current status of the project and discuss sciences by soliciting variety papers. This session is open to the world, and we strongly encourage submission of papers related to other facilities and projects, i.e., atmospheric or incoherent scatter radars, observation networks, satellites, and simulation or theoretical studies, etc.
