Session Description
The variety of space and ground-based high-resolution and high-cadence instruments such as DKIST, SST, DST, IRIS, Hinode, Solar Orbiter, COSMO, and Solar Probe as well as HPC modelling with MURaM, Bifrost, CO5BOLD, R2D2 numerical codes opened new possibilities for detailed study of various plasma-waves and flows related processes in the magnetised solar atmosphere. Solar magnetic structures exhibit complex characteristics and dynamics, support generation and propagation of a wide range of plasma-waves and couple different layers of the solar atmosphere, thus enabling the channelling and transfer of mass, momentum and energy from the solar surface up to the low corona. The main challenge now is to accurately interpret the true nature of observed magnetohydrodynamic waves and flows to quantify their contribution to energy transport and dissipation. The proposed session will address points above and 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 and numerical analytical / modelling, in order to exploit different approaches in the investigation of MHD plasma wave and flow processes in the solar atmosphere. The following research topics will be covered: multi-scale (non-)linear MHD wave excitation and propagation; wave mode conversion; resonant absorption, turbulence, and magnetic reconnection; coherent plasma motions (e.g., vortex, source/sink type motions and laminar flows); plasma flow reorganisation before and after strong energetic events; energy transport through the solar atmosphere.
