A Topical Issue in the Frontiers in Astronomy & Space Sciences :: Data-driven MHD: Novel Applications to the Solar Atmosphere

September 9, 2019, from Abhishek K. Srivastava

This Research Topic in the Frontiers in Astronomy & Space Sciences (FRASS) provides an opportunity for solar physicists to publish Review and Original Research articles on the theme of ‘Data-driven MHD: Novel Applications to the Solar Atmosphere’. We solicit articles that bring cutting edge observational data and related MHD modelling together to answer/clarify fundamental but focused issues of the solar atmosphere. The aim is to bring new insights into the solar and heliospheric physics community, especially when the era of ultra-high resolution observations are on our horizon. Key themes include, but are not limited to:

(i) Energy and mass transport candidates (e.g., waves and plasma reconnection) and their role in the localized heating and mass transport in the various layers of the solar atmosphere using the MHD approximation;

(ii) Origin and transport processes in magnetic flux tubes (e.g., various chromospheric jets, spicules, and coronal jets);

(iii) The role of MHD waves in solar wind source and acceleration regions;

(iv) Active region dynamics, their modelling in the framework of MHD;

(v) MHD oscillations and refined solar magneto-seismology (SMS) using novel photospheric, chromospheric, transition region and coronal observations;

(vi) Modelling large-scale solar eruptive phenomena and their space weather aspects.
