Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

This meeting is postponed. More details to follow.

Royal Society Theo Murphy International meeting organised by Dr Julia Stawarz, Dr Daniel Verscharen and Dr Christopher Chen.

This meeting will bring together experts on plasma turbulence in the solar wind and Earth's magnetosphere to discuss the latest cutting-edge results on the role of collision-less plasma processes in turbulent energy dissipation from the revolutionary Magnetospheric Multiscale and Parker Solar Probe spacecraft. These discussions will provide crucial input for the ongoing science operations of these and future space missions. 

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
