Dr Suzana S. A. Silva (The University of Sheffield), Dr Nitin Yadav (Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Thiruvananthapuram), Dr Chia-Hsien Lin (National Central University), Dr Luiz A. C. A. Schiavo (Northumbria University), Prof Viktor Fedun (The University of Sheffield)

Session Description
Solar atmosphere exhibits intricate plasma dynamics, showcasing a variety of phenomena associated with the excitation of different kinds of plasma flows (e.g. vortices, jets, shear), energy transport, and heating. These dynamic processes within the solar atmosphere are intimately connected to magnetic fields, which are inherently intertwined with the flow patterns in the photosphere and chromosphere. Consequently, developing realistic models for the solar atmosphere becomes imperative to accurately capture the intricate interplay between magnetic fields and plasma flows. This interplay can lead to the propulsion of plasma jets, the formation of vortex motions, the onset of instabilities, solar flares and the generation of turbulence, among other phenomena in Quiet Sun and Active regions. The new cutting-edge ground- and space- based observations (SST, BBSO, DKIST, Solar Orbiter, Parker Solar Probe, Aditya-L1) provide us with a wealth of data for validation of our current theoretical understanding of the behaviour of magnetic fields and flows in the photosphere and chromosphere, thereby significantly improving MHD models. In light of these developments, our proposed session invites contributions centred on analysing observational data and developing theoretical approaches, including high-performance computing (HPC) simulations and analytical methods. The proposed session aims to enhance our insights into the solar atmospheric dynamics across various scales and explore synergies between the fundamental facets of solar plasma physics. It will also provide a platform for engaging discussions among esteemed scientists, early-career researchers, and PhD students. The following research topics will be covered: photospheric magnetic fields; Coherent plasma structures (e.g., vortices, source / sink type motions and laminar flows; spicules, swirls, Ellerman bombs, magnetic bright points, pores and sunspot structures/flows); Energy transport between lower and upper solar atmosphere layers; Turbulent plasma processes.
