Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions (co-organized)

The session provides an opportunity for the presentation and the discussion about non-thermal radio emissions emanating from the five magnetized planets, the Sun, the heliosphere, and extra-solar planets. Particular attention is given to observations and interpretations of radio wave phenomena based on techniques (e.g. wave polarization
measurements) and methods (e.g. direction finding) of radiophysics. Theoretical investigations, including numerical simulation, are recommended especially for comparative studies between magnetized bodies in the solar system. This session also aims at the evaluation of the results concerning the ongoing missions (e.g. Cassini/RPWS,
Cluster/WBD, Demeter/ICE, Stereo/SWAVES, Wind/WAVES) as well as the plans for future ones (e.g. Juno, Resonance, Solar Orbiter) and their relevance for a better understanding of the solar and planetary radio emissions. New advances in the field of ground-based giant radio telescopes (e.g. LOFAR, FASR) are supported with main emphasis, on the one hand, on the development of new generation of radio reception systems (antennas and instruments) and, on the other hand, on the applied methods towards a synergy between space and ground-based stereoscopic observations.
