PS4.4/ST4.4Planetary Space Weather (including Arne Richter Award for Outstanding ECS Lecture) (co-organized)
|Convener: Anna Milillo | Co-Conveners: Philippe Garnier , Zhonghua Yao|
The emphasis of the session is on all aspects of planetary space weather, that is, plasma physics and interactions of the interplanetary medium with the Solar System bodies, including:
(a) magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling dynamics and aurorae
(b) the solar wind interaction with planets, moons, asteroids and comets
(c) plasma interactions with exospheres, dust and surfaces
(d) surface space weathering
(e) potential impact of planetary environment on technological space systems
(f) comparisons amongst Earth and other planetary environments.
We warmly welcome contributions that are based on previous (e.g. CASSINI, CHANDRAYAAN-1, KAGUYA, MESSENGER, ROSETTA, VENUS EXPRESS), present (e.g. JUNO, MARS EXPRESS, MAVEN), forthcoming (e.g. BEPI COLOMBO) and planned (e.g. JUICE) missions. Analyses of ground-based observations of neutral and ionized environments are welcome. Theoretical modeling and simulations are also strongly encouraged, both in themselves and as a basis for comparisons and interpretation of measurements. Laboratory studies aiming to simulate the interactions on planetary analogues in space are considered as well.
