SH027:
Physical Phenomena in the Outer Heliosphere and Beyond





Session ID#: 26436

Session Description:
The Voyager 1/2 mission is performing in situ investigation of the physical phenomena that accompany the solar wind interaction with the local interstellar medium. In partially ionized plasmas, charge exchange, ionization, kinetic and fluid instabilities, and magnetic fields play important roles in determining the heliospheric structure. This session addresses the most challenging issues related to Voyager observations: (1) the effects of charge exchange, interstellar magnetic field draping, and time dependent phenomena on Voyager observations; (2) physics of non-thermal ions; (3)  ion acceleration at the termination shock and in the heliosheath; (4) galactic cosmic ray transport throughout the heliosphere and LISM; (5) roles of plasma waves, turbulence, instabilities, and magnetic reconnection; (6) relation of Voyager measurements to remote observations from IBEX, Cassini, SOHO, HST, and air shower observatories. We solicit papers addressing these and other phenomena occurring in the outer heliosphere and LISM.
