Poster Summaries & DiscussionsPSD23.5 

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. Theoretical investigation and numerical simulation are especially recommended. Latest results from recent spacecraft missions (e.g. Cassini/RPWS, Cluster/WBD, Demeter/ICE, Stereo/SWAVES, Wind/WAVES) will be addressed that focus on radiophysics of the ionosphere, the magnetosphere, the Solar corona, its extension in the interplanetary medium, and the way the Solar Wind acts together with the magnetized environments of the Earth and the giants planets. Particular attention is given to recent laboratory and experimental studies devoted to the comprehension of the generation mechanism (e.g. cyclotron maser instability). Further preparations, evaluations, investigations, analyses of forthcoming space missions (like JIMO, Juno, Resonance, Solar Orbiter, Solar Probe) are also encouraged. New radiophysics advances in the field of ground-based giant radio telescopes (e.g. FASR, LOFAR, LOIS) 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.
