7th Solar Orbiter Workshop: Exploring the solar environs


The Solar Orbiter mission will bring the community an excellent opportunity for doing unique science that embraces most solar topics from the interior up to the heliosphere employing novel vantage points. The combined use of results from its four in-situ and six remote-sensing instruments will provide an unprecedented view of the Sun and the interplanetary medium. Aimed at discussing most of these topics, the 7th Solar Orbiter Workshop entitled “Exploring the solar environs” will be held in Granada, Spain, from the 3rd through the 6th of April, 2017. Overviews, prospects, and new science about the solar interior, the photospheric structure, dynamics, and magnetic fields, the chromosphere, the corona, the solar wind, and the heliospheric magnetic fields and particles are scheduled. Synergies with other missions and ground-based observatories will also be covered. Theoreticians, observers, and instrumentalist astronomers are encouraged to attend.
