The MIST email list uses the JISCMAIL system; this is the National Academic Mailing List Service provided by JANET(UK). There are currently 328 subscribers. The list is for messages and announcements of interest to the UK MIST (Magnetosphere Ionosphere and Solar Terrestrial physics) community.

The list is currently maintained by Rob Fear, Emma Woodfield and Mario Bisi on behalf of the MIST council.
