Advances in Data-Constrained Modeling of the Solar Magnetic Field

Session ID#: 22886

Session Description:
Routine observations of the solar photospheric magnetic field provide important clues to both the dynamo processes in the interior and the eruption processes in the corona. These observations have been used, either directly or as a template, to model the genesis and re-organization of surface magnetic field, the coronal magnetic energy storage and release during flares, and the launch and propagation of CMEs in the heliosphere. This session focuses on the recent progresses and future prospects of these data constrained modeling of the solar magnetic field. For example, how has the data-assimilation approach in surface flux transport models influenced our prediction of the solar cycle strength? How can we incorporate a sequence of vector magnetograms in MHD models and self-consistently generate eruptions? What new observational and numerical capabilities are useful for validating and improving the existing models? What new physics will we learn from these improved models?
