ST4.2Solar system plasma turbulence
|Convener: Zoltan Voros | Co-Conveners: Yasuhito Narita , Marius M. Echim|
This session focuses on the physics of multi-scale plasma turbulence, addressing both fundamental and applied questions, such as energy transfer between scales, the role of coherent structures and boundaries, scale invariance, intermittency, criticality, anisotropy, collisionless and coarse-grained dissipation. The novelty of the proposed session is that we encourage experimental, numerical and theoretical contributions that investigate the (non-) universal features of turbulence in planetary plasma environments with or without intrinsic magnetic field in comparison to spatio-temporal evolution of solar wind turbulence. We also focus on the solar-cycle dependence of intermittent properties of turbulence, repeatedly affecting solar wind – planetary interactions, geomagnetic activity and indices, transport across boundaries and plasma heating.
