[edit] 16:30, 25 January 2017: Russian-British seminar SW2017

Russian-British seminar “Dynamical plasma processes in the heliosphere: from the Sun to the Earth”

18- 21 September 2017, Irkutsk, Russia

The main topics are the interdisciplinary challenges of solar and space physics and geophysics: • Magnetohydrodynamic waves. Analogies and differences between the coronal, solar wind and magnetospheric plasmas; and the ionospheric and chromospheric plasmas. • Magnetic reconnection and impulsive energy releases: solar flares and geomagnetic storms. • Charged particle acceleration and dynamics, key observables. • Advanced modelling techniques, high-performance computing. • Advanced data analysis techniques. • Modern instrumentation. These topics provide the participants with a solid ground for knowledge transfer, multidisciplinary collaboration based upon knowledge synthesis, and cross-fertilisation of different research fields. All topics are directly relevant to the study and forecasting of extreme events of space weather, and plasma diagnostics - the key tasks of the recently international efforts in Space Weather, including the Russian National Heliophysics Centre in Irkutsk.


[edit] 10:30, 27 October 2016: Second VarSITI General Symposium (VarSITI-2017)

[edit] First announcement

Dates: 10-15 July 2017 (Student Tutorial Session on 9 July 2017)

Place: Irkutsk, Russia



Variability of the Sun and Its Terrestrial Impact (VarSITI) is the current scientific program of SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics) for the period 2014-2018 ( VarSITI focuses on the recent and expected future solar activity and its consequences for the Earth, over various time scales from thousands of years to milliseconds, and at various locations from the solar interior to the Earth’s atmosphere. In particular, VarSITI focuses on the interconnections in the Sun-Earth system. Four scientific projects are being carried out under VarSITI: (1) Solar Evolution and Extrema (SEE), (2) International Study of Earth-Affecting Solar Transients (ISEST/MiniMax24), (3) Specification and Prediction of the Coupled Inner-Magnetospheric Environment (SPeCIMEN), and (4) Role Of the Sun and the Middle atmosphere/thermosphere/ionosphere In Climate (ROSMIC). Data from relevant space- and ground-based missions will be utilized in combination with theory and modeling efforts to facilitate the implementation of these projects.
