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.

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
