SM010:
Imaging the Global Dynamics of the Solar Wind - Magnetosphere Interaction





Session ID#: 25183

Session Description:
Recent years have seen a host of novel imaging techniques employed to define the state and dynamics of the global solar wind-magnetosphere interaction, and their ability to validate the predictions of global simulations for the solar wind’s interaction with various obstacles within the heliosphere including Venus, Mars, comets, and the Earth.  This session is devoted to reviewing the information that can be learned from past, present, and potential future heliophysics, planetary, and astrophysics missions, using global numerical simulations to define the expected images, and describing future imaging techniques. Presentations describing results from previous/current missions, simulations, techniques and ideas for future missions are welcome.
