Information - ST5 The 3D heliosphere at solar minimum
The session will focus on the 3-dimensional structure of the heliosphere with particular emphasis on the current, near-minimum, phase of the solar cycle. The fleet of solar and heliospheric spacecraft presently in orbit, or soon to be launched, is uniquely placed to address questions related to 3-D structure. Ulysses is carrying out its third southern high-latitude pass, while ACE, SOHO and the recently launched Solar-B (Hinode) continue to monitor conditions close to the Earth in the ecliptic and at the Sun. Voyager 1 is returning data from the heliosheath, as Voyager 2 approaches the termination shock. The two STEREO spacecraft were launched at the end of October 2006, and first results are expected by the time of the 2007 General Assembly. Contributions are therefore solicited that address relevant observations from space and from the ground, as well as the results of theoretical and modelling studies.
