Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions (co-organized)
Convener: Patrick Galopeau  | Co-Convener: Mohammed Y. Boudjada 
 / Thu, 16 Apr, 10:30–12:00

The session is intended to give an opportunity to explore our understanding of non-thermal radio emissions emanating from the Sun, the magnetized planets, and extra-solar planets. New advances in theoretical investigation are recommended and particular attention to simulation techniques that allow incorporation of more physics. Laboratory and experimental studies devoted to the comprehension of the generation mechanisms (e.g. cyclotron maser instability) and the acceleration processes (e.g. Alfven waves) are encouraged. Results from radio plasma wave experiments onboard spacecraft (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. 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 Juice, Juno, Resonance, Solar Orbiter, Solar Probe) are also welcome.
