Remote influences between different latitudes and heights are an essential feature of the earth's atmosphere. Vertical coupling processes between the troposphere and middle atmosphere are a primary driver for the short-term and long-term variabilities in the middle atmosphere. Several kinds of teleconnection patterns in the troposphere have much impact on the surface weather and climate. In addition, an interhemispheric coupling process (i.e., connection between the stratosphere in the winter hemisphere and the mesosphere in the summer hemisphere) was recently identified and attracted much attention. This session focuses on the interhemispheric and intrahemispheric coupling processes in the earth's atmosphere. A wide variety of studies based on observations and modeling for the interhemispheric and intrahemispheric coupling are welcome.
