SM006:
Dayside Processes and Solar Wind-Magnetosphere Coupling





Session ID#: 23546

Session Description:
Investigating the coupling processes of plasma and energy from the solar wind to the magnetopause and into the magnetosphere provides valuable pathways for understanding our dynamic Earth system. In recent years, a significant number of spacecraft and ground-based instruments have sampled the various upstream regions and boundaries of Earth’s magnetosphere – foreshock, bow shock, magnetosheath, and magnetopause - with both in situ and remote observations. Modeling and theoretical efforts have also contributed to advance our recent understanding of the physics occurring in these regions.  This session will focus on the processing and dynamics of plasma within these dayside regions and boundary layers, and how those processes impact the solar wind-magnetosphere interaction and the generation of magnetospheric and ionospheric disturbances. Topics of interest for this session include magnetic reconnection and magnetosheath current sheets, plasma instabilities at the magnetopause and in the magnetopause boundary layers, and magnetosheath and foreshock wave-particle interactions.
