The magnetosphere is a complex nonlinear dynamical system. Large regions of the magnetosphere are connected by fundamental processes operating on vastly different scales. It is necessary to understand how turbulence transports energy from large scales to small scales, how small-scale processes control large-scale phenomena, and how thin boundary layers are formed and sustained in spite of the presence of plasma turbulence in these regions. We invite papers utilizing the combination of ground-based instruments and spacecraft such as Cluster, THEMIS/ARTEMIS, Geotail, Double Star, the Van Allen probes and the newly launched MMS mission in conjunction with simulations and theory to advance our understanding of space physics.
