Call for Abstracts — IAGA session “A16 Waves and Turbulence in the Solar Corona and Wind” at IUGG General Assembly

The 2023 IAGA Division IV sessions will be held during the 28th IUGG General Assembly, July 11-20, Berlin, Germany.

We are welcoming abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations for our session (details at the end of the message).
Abstracts will be reviewed by the Symposia Conveners and will be selected for oral or poster presentations. The preference for oral/poster presentation may be indicated while submitting the abstract. Contributed talks will be 15 minute long.

Please note the possibility of active virtual participation is not foreseen.

Important deadlines:
Abstract Submission: February 14, 2023
Early bird registration: April 28, 2023
Travel Grants Program deadline: February 14, 2023 (see below for further details)
All presenting authors are required to register by 6 April 2023 to be included in the final program.

Please feel free to forward the information about the IAGA symposium and our session to the members of your team and your collaborators.
Participation by early-career scientists is particularly encouraged.

In this regard, IUGG has a Travel Grants Program in place to support students, early career scientists, and attendees from low and low-middle income countries with an accepted abstract. The deadline for applications for the IUGG 2023 Travel Grants Program is 14 February 2023. The IUGG 2023 Secretariat will notify successful applicants by 17 March 2023.

If you need any additional information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Berlin!

Best wishes,
Luca Franci on behalf of all the co-conveners

Session title: “A16 Waves and Turbulence in the Solar Corona and Wind”
Convener(s): Luca Franci (Imperial College London, UK,

Turbulence is ubiquitous in space and astrophysical plasmas, and it is a fundamental ingredient in their dynamics. It is directly responsible for transferring energy from macroscopic fluid scales down to sub-electron scales and it also plays a role in particle heating and acceleration and in energy dissipation, all processes of great interest for the astrophysical community. Plasma environments that are directly accessible to spacecraft such as the solar wind, and more recently the solar corona, represent unique natural laboratories to probe the plasma dynamics. In situ spacecraft observations, combined with theoretical models and numerical simulations, are key to advancing our understanding of the different phenomena at play. This session will focus on current research on plasma turbulence in the solar corona and the solar wind. It will address its properties and evolution, its interaction with magnetic reconnection, instabilities, wave-particle interactions, and the solar wind expansion, and its role in the particle dynamics and in energy dissipation. We welcome diverse and complementary contributions from theory, simulations, and observations which focus on different aspects (e.g., spectral properties, cross-scale energy transfer, intermittency, and all related mechanisms).
