STORM - Solar system plasma Turbulence:  Observations, inteRmittency and Multifractals

EGU Session on Solar System Plasma Turbulence

STORM@EGU2014: Session on solar system plasma turbulence.

Members of STORM (Zoltan Voeroes, Emiliya Yordanova, Yasuhito Narita, Roberto Bruno, Marius Echim) will convene at the forthcoming EGU meeting in Vienna (April 2014) a scientific session devoted to solar system plasma turbulence. The session raised strong interest within the community and attracted 35 submitted abstracts. This is an ideal opportunity to disseminate the results of STORM at an international level, during a world-class scientific event. The session focuses on the physics of multi-scale plasma turbulence, addressing both fundamental and applied questions, such as energy transfer between scales, the role of coherent structures and boundaries, scale invariance, intermittency, criticality, anisotropy,  collisionless  and coarse-grained dissipation.  The novelty of the proposed session is that we encourage experimental, numerical and theoretical contributions that investigate the (non-) universal features of turbulence in planetary plasma environments with or without intrinsic magnetic field in comparison to spatio-temporal evolution of solar wind turbulence. We also focus on the solar-cycle dependence of intermittent properties of turbulence, repeatedly affecting solar wind – planetary interactions, geomagnetic activity and indices, transport across boundaries  and plasma heating.
