Coronal and Stellar Mass Ejections (IAU S226)
The Sun and other stars eject large clouds of plasma and magnetic fields on a continual basis. They are accelerated to high speeds and then become capable of producing highly energetic charged particles and disrupting the magnetospheres of planets such as the Earth. This proceeding reflects recent a..

Whistler and Alfvén Mode Cyclotron Masers in Space
The subject of wave-particle interactions occurring in space plasmas has developed strongly, both observationally and theoretically, since the discovery of the Van Allen radiation belts of energetic charged particles trapped in the Earth's magnetosphere over forty years ago. These wave-particle inte..

Solar Activity and its Magnetic Origin (IAU S233)
The variability of the Sun's magnetic field is the main driver of solar activity. IAU S233 was held to further our understanding of solar magnetic processes and its interplanetary consequences. The Symposium was organised into seven sessions covering: the generation and transport of solar magnetic f..
