Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions (co-organized)
Convener: Patrick Galopeau  | Co-Convener: Mohammed Y. Boudjada 
 / Mon, 28 Apr, 13:30–15:00
 / Attendance Mon, 28 Apr, 17:30–19:00

The session provides an opportunity for the discussion about non-thermal radio emissions emanating from the five magnetized planets, the Sun, the heliosphere, and extra-solar planets. Results from spacecraft missions (e.g. Cassini, Cluster, Demeter, Stereo, Ulysses and Wind) 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. Theoretical investigation and numerical simulation are recommended, and particular attention is given to recent laboratory and experimental studies devoted to the comprehension of the generation mechanism (e.g. cyclotron maser instability). 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. Further preparations, evaluations, investigations, analyses of forthcoming space missions (like JIMO, Juno, Resonance, Solar Orbiter, Solar Probe) are also encouraged.
