Session Description
The intricate dynamics of the lower solar atmosphere involves a complex interplay of plasma phenomena, such as magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) wave excitation and propagation, energy transport, and heating. These phenomena are intricately connected to magnetic fields, driven by photospheric plasma motion. Magnetic configurations are observed across various scales, from small-scale flux ropes to solar prominences. Advanced solar observation facilities such as The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope, COronal Solar Magnetism Observatory, Parker Solar Probe, and Solar Orbiter, will provide an unprecedented view of the dynamical processes in the lower solar atmosphere and beyond. This progress can enable significant advancements in our MHD modelling capabilities, particularly in elucidating the complex interaction between magnetic fields and flows in the Sun. We welcome contributions that address multi-scale MHD phenomena in the lower atmosphere from observational, analytical and numerical analysis, including but not limited to, MHD waves, jets, vortices, energy transport, and plasma heating.

With our Best Regards,
Suzana Silva, Samuel Skirvin and Viktor Fedun
