Solar Wind Structures and their Effect upon the Magnetosphere, Ionosphere and Atmosphere: Space Weather  – 7  Marzo  2019  alle ore 11:00 – Aula Convegni –  Area della Ricerca di Roma Tor Vergata

Bruce Tsurutani
Pasadena, California-USA

Interplanetary and solar phenomena and their respective concomitant geomagnetic activities at Earth will be discussed. Of particular importance are: solar flares, collisionless shocks, sheaths, coronal mass ejections (CMEs), interplanetary coronal mass ejections (ICMEs), magnetic clouds (MCs), solar filaments, corotating interaction regions (CIRs), high speed streams, Alfvén waves, and the heliospheric current sheet/plasma sheet. Geomagnetic activity topics are: sudden ionospheric TEC enhancements, geomagnetic storms, substorms, convection events, chorus generation, Sudden

Impulses (SI+s), dayside auroras, the formation of new radiation belts, relativistic electron acceleration and losses, prompt penetration electric fields (PPEFs), the dayside ionospheric superfountain effect, and supersubstorms. The various topics will be ordered by solar cycle phases: solar maximum, the declining phase and solar minimum. Extreme space weather will also be covered including past historical events and predictions of possible even larger events.
