Splinter Meeting Plasma

Space Plasma Processes in Stellar and Planetary Environments

Time: Tuesday September 19, 14:00-16:30

Room: D+E+F MPS

Convenors: Thomas Wiegelmann and Joachim Saur

Fundamental plasma physics processes like magnetic reconnection, formation of current sheets, heating and the acceleration of solar and stellar winds take place in environments like stellar and solar coronae, planetary and brown dwarf magnetospheres. Stellar and solar winds, originating in the coronae of stars, play an important role for shaping the heliosphere and astrospheres. Their interaction with magnetized planets forms magnetospheres. Aim of the meeting is stimulate discussions of space plasma physicists from different communities, e.g.

  • physics of solar and stellar atmospheres
  • planetary physics including exo-planets and brown dwarfs
  • Earth and planetary magnetospheres
  • comets and minor bodies.

This splinter meeting is supported by the AEF (Arbeitsgemeinschaft extraterrestrische Forschung) and DPG-EP.
