SPM1.29

Space plasma turbulence meeting (public)
Wed, 25 Apr, 10:30–12:00 / Room SM8
Add this session to your Personal programme

Magnetized plasmas in the solar system exhibit complex dynamical behavior over a huge range of scales. The fundamental mechanisms of energy transport, redistribution and conversion occur in multi-scale manner, while the driving mechanisms include energy accumulation, dissipation or self-organization. Associated plasma processes, such as magnetic reconnection, wave-particle interactions and turbulence represent fundamental physical ingredients occurring in the near-Earth space or the solar wind.

The splinter meeting on space plasma turbulence aims to highlight in extended depth physical aspects of theoretical and numerical approaches proposed and performed for solar system plasmas.
