Commission H: Waves in Plasmas

The goals of the Commission are:

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