This paper discusses the connection between changes in Earth\textquoterights thermosphere and ionosphere induced by changes in the Earth\textquoterights local space environment (or \textquotedblleftspace weather\textquotedblright) and the phenomena observed in far ultraviolet images of the Earth. Two new experiments, the Global Ultraviolet Imager (GUVI) and the Special Sensor Ultraviolet Imager (SSUSI), will provide a new capability for monitoring changes in thermospheric composition and ionospheric density as they change in response to space weather. These sensors provide a ten-fold improvement in spatial and temporal resolution and a greater than ten-fold improvement in sensitivity over that provided by sensors on the POLAR and IMAGE satellites. These sensors are expected to provide new insights into the mesoscale coupling between the ionosphere and thermosphere, as well as allowing us to develop a better specification of the high latitude convection electric field pattern.
