Workshop on Cross-Scale Coupling in Plasmas
Start date: 09 Mar 2009
Address: Università della Calabria, Rende (Cosenza), Italy
Space, astrophysical, and laboratory plasmas are dominated by processes, such as shocks, magnetic reconnection, and turbulence, that are intrinsically variable and coupled on disparate scales. This workshop will discuss and refine the science background and mission design for Cross-Scale, a candidate ESA Cosmic Vision mission dedicated to the study of these fundamental phenomena.
