Astrophysical Processes in the Heliospheric Environment

The BMBF promoted project "Astrophysical Processes in the Heliospheric Environment" is coordinated by the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Project partners are Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg as well as the Max-Planck-Institut für Sonnensystemforschung in Göttingen.

The transit time is from April 1st, 2015 up to March 31st, 2018.

Abstract: To enhance the understanding of the heliosphere and her surrounding as astrophysical system, the project includes the development, expansion, and refinement of theory and modelling of turbular (inter)stellar plasmas and the transport of energetic partlices in it.
