PS5.0/ST6.1Planetary Plasma Physics, including electrodynamics of induced magnetospheres (co-organized)
|Convener: Esa Kallio | Co-Conveners: Philippe Garnier , Hermann Opgenoorth , Mark Lester|
The emphasis of the session is on all aspects of planetary plasma physics, particles, fields and waves, including
(1) magnetospheres, ionospheres, auroras, of solar system and extrasolar planets and satellites
(2) the solar wind interaction with inner planets, moons, asteroids, dust and comets, and
(3) intercomparisons of planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres.
Contributions are welcome which address previous (e.g. CHANDRAYAAN-1, KAGUYA), present (e.g. CASSINI, MARS EXPRESS, VENUS EXPRESS, ROSETTA, MESSENGER), forthcoming (e.g. BEPI COLOMBO) and planned (e.g. JGO) observations from space and from the ground. Theoretical modelling and simulations are also strongly encouraged, both in themselves and as a basis for intercomparisons and interpretation of results.
