IAGA Division IV - Solar Wind and Interplanetary Field

Turbulent motions inside the Sun supply energy to produce not only the magnetized atmosphere at 1 million Kelvin but also enormous energy release events. The solar wind and the heliosphere are thus a natural plasma laboratory energized by constant free energy input from the Sun. Division IV represents all research fields related to these phenomena.
