ST04 ‘MHD Wave Processes in the Solar Atmosphere’, AOGS 2021 (Virtual meeting)

January 11, 2021, from Viktor Fedun

We would like to draw your attention to the ST04 session: ‘MHD Wave Processes in the Solar Atmosphere’ in the framework of Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) conference.

The 18th Annual AOGS will be a virtual event: 01 – 06 August 2021. The further details regarding abstract submission, registration and relevant deadlines can be found on the meeting website:

Abstract submission deadline is 23 February 2021.

ST04 ‘MHD Wave Processes in the Solar Atmosphere’
Dr Viktor Fedun (The University of Sheffield, United Kingdom),
Dr Sergiy Shelyag (Deakin University, Australia),
Dr Gary Verth (The University of Sheffield, United Kingdom),

Session Description
A wide and complex variety of solar magnetic configurations support the propagation of a wide range of MHD waves at different spatio-temporal scales. Thankfully, due to current (and near future) high-resolution instruments (SST, DST, DIKIST, EST, COSMO, Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe) we have observational data with a quality newer achieved before. For a better understanding of observable signatures of MHD waves, associated plasma processes and to fully utilise the diagnostic capabilities of such high-resolution observational instruments, the development of advanced mathematical models (analytical and numerical) is crucial. This session will provide a timely platform for joint discussions between world-leading experts, early career researchers and PhD students in the fields of solar observational analysis and numerical analytical / modelling, in order to exploit different approaches in the investigation of MHD plasma wave processes in the solar atmosphere. The session will cover the following research topics: multi-scale (non-)linear MHD wave excitation and propagation; wave mode conversion; resonant absorption, turbulence and magnetic reconnection; coherent plasma motions (e.g. e.g., vortex, source/sink type motions and laminar flows); energy transport.

With our Best Regards,
Viktor Fedun, Sergiy Shelyag and Gary Verth
