Commission H - Waves in Plasmas (including space and laboratory plasmas)

/ Updated on 17.11.2022

The goals of the Commission are:

  • To study waves in plasmas in the broadest sense, and in particular:
    • the generation (e.g. plasma instabilities), propagation, and detection of waves in plasmas,
    • wave-wave and wave-particle interactions,
    • plasma turbulence and chaos,
    • spacecraft-plasma interaction,
    • instabilities, heating, and diagnosis of laboratory plasmas;
  • To encourage the application of these studies, particularly in the areas of solar/planetary plasma interactions, space weather, and an increased exploitation of space as a research laboratory.
