  Information - ST6 Multi-point measurements of solar-terrestrial plasma: results and future perspectives

Event Information
During the initial period of in-situ space measurements our studies and knowledge were based on single point measurements. Inability to separate between local temporal and spatial variations pushed scientific community towards two and multi-satellite missions ISEE, AMPTE and Cluster. These missions led to the breakthrough in understanding of local plasma processes and boundaries of the magnetosphere. These multi-point missions also led to a conclusion that understanding of global coupled solar wind- magnetosphere system is impossible without full integration of multi-point measurements both on the local and global scale including ground based observations. Future missions such as Resonance are planned to conjugate ground-based ionospheric measurements with multi-satellite measurements. Alongside this progress from a single- to a multi-point experiments, numerical analysis tools and simulation techniques has also evolved from the studies of a single space plasma boundary or a process to complex global simulations of the sun-solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere system. This cross-field symposium will be devoted to the review of the achievements in multi-point measurements, modern data analysis tools, innovative analytical methods and their future perspectives for solar-terrestrial science.
