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

Investigation of solar system plasma turbulence

The research activities in STORM are organized as a structure of nine work packages. Two packages are devoted to the scientific and administrative management of the project, one to the dissemination of the scientific results and six main research work packages.

Turbulence, Intermittency and Multifractals in the solar wind, at solar maximum and solar minimum

This work package is devoted to the analysis of solar wind intermittent turbulence in the solar wind and will provide on the one hand a quantitative description of the turbulence, of its inertial range and the properties of energy transfer and on the other hand will provide an estimation of the turbulence upstream the outer layers of the planetary plasma environment – an input for space weather events in case of the Earth.

Intermittency and multifractals in ground-based magnetic measurements

This work package is devoted to the analysis of the intermittency of geomagnetic indices fluctuations and comparison with quantitative measures of the intermittency in the magnetosphere and the solar measured simultaneously by satellites.

Turbulence, Intermittency and Multifractals in the planetary plasmas

This work package is devoted to the analysis of the intermittent turbulence in the planetary plasmas of Venus and the Earth, using data from Cluster and Venus Express data, and also in the vicinity of comets (Halley, Grig-Skjelerupp, 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko), Mars and Saturn.

Data driven insight on multifractals, ROMA and the (Forced) Self Organized Criticality

The main component of this WP is fundamental theoretical research driven by data analysis.
