Session 6 - The transition from the corona to the heliosphere

Conveners: David Berghmans (ROB), Marc DeRosa (LMSAL)

This session will focus on the outer edge of the AIA FOV, and beyond, where the plasma pressure increasingly dominates the magnetic pressure and the topology of streamers and pseudo-streamers fades in the solar wind. Both solar max and solar min configurations, and the evolution between, can be addressed by the near solar cycle coverage of SDO. Contemporary and upcoming EUV imagers with extended FOV and/or coronagraphs with low occultor are welcome to provide contributions to expand the insights obtained from SDO results.

Plenary speaker: Dan Seaton (NOAA)
