Session Description
In recent years new ground- and space-based high-resolution and high-cadence observational instruments have become operational, e.g., DKIST, Solar Orbiter, Parker Solar Probe. In combination with established facilities such as SST, DST, IRIS, Hinode, COSMO and HPC magnetohydrodynamic codes (MURaM, Bifrost, CO5BOLD and R2D2), this has opened a brand new era for solar science, providing us with excellent opportunities to conduct the most comprehensive analyses of plasma waves and flows driven by MHD processes. The main challenge now is to combine state-of-the-art observational data with cutting-edge theoretical (analytical and numerical) results. In the framework of the proposed session, we will focus on the most important aspects of energy transport between solar atmospheric layers due to MHD waves and plasma flows. 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, analytical and numerical modelling. Additionally, we anticipate that the results of the proposed session will benefit future space missions e.g., Multi-slit Solar Explorer (MUSE) and the Solar-C EUVST which will provide UV/EUV spectral images at high spatial and temporal resolution as well as Sunrise III that will provide high-resolution images of photospheric and chromospheric magnetic fields. The following research topics will be covered: MHD wave excitation and propagation; wave mode conversion; coherent plasma motions (e.g., vortex, source/sink type motions, jets, laminar flows); resonant absorption, phase mixing, MHD plasma instabilities; plasma flow reorganisation before and after strong energetic events; energy transport through the solar atmosphere.
