ST1.53D structure and physical nature of the global heliosphere
|Convener: V. Izmodenov | Co-Conveners: P. Wurz , H. Fichtner|
In this session will be discussed recent observations from the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX), Voyager 1 and 2, and other relevant spacecraft (like SOHO, HST, Ulysses etc.), which are challenging many areas of our current knowledge about the heliospheric boundary, the heliospheric interaction the local interstellar medium, and particle populations in these regions. We invite contributions that present recent IBEX and Voyager
observations as well as other complementary in-situ or remote sensing measurements of the heliosphere and the neutral interstellar flow. Contributions are also solicited for theory and modeling of the solar wind interaction with the local interstellar medium, and for comparison with observations.
List of invited (confirmed) speakers: E. Stone (Voyager), T. Krimigis (Voyager/LECP), J. Richardson (Voyager/PLASMA), N. Schwadron (IBEX), M. Bzowski (IBEX-Lo: helium flow), E. Roelof (Cassini/INCA), H. Fahr(IBEX: theory), R. Kallenbach (SOHO/CELIAS)
