DynaSun Network workshop:

Waves, Reconnection and Particle Acceleration in Solar Flares

The solar atmosphere is a dynamic system with phenomena including solar flares, coronal mass ejections, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves, plasma oscillations and time-dependent heating. In Solar Physics, we are now living in the era of data intensive observations and so, with the right techniques and understanding, we can start to address fundamental questions around the physical scenarios of energy releases and plasma heating.

The European Commission has recognised this challenge (and scientific opportunity) and so has created the DynaSun Network: Dynamics of the solar corona in the era of data intensive observations. This international network will discuss key challenges in solar physics, including understanding of mechanisms for plasma heating, and energetics and physical scenarios of energy releases such as flares and coronal mass ejections. The first DynaSun Network workshop will be held on 2-6 September 2024 at Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. This first workshop will focus on waves and oscillations associated with solar flares, and will include tutorials on advanced techniques associated with data intensive observations. We will also present the latest research in this area, but also welcome presentations around MHD wave phenomena; examining how they drive and contribute to the observed dynamics from the photosphere to the corona, and how they can be exploited to probe plasma conditions.

Co-sponsored by DynaSun (Dynamics of the solar corona in the era of data intensive observations). The DynaSun project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation program under grant agreement No 101131534.
