Space Plasma Physics

Experimental measurements and their analysis have always played an important role in the solution of physical problems. This also applies to the study of the dynamics of space plasma, where often multi-satellite measurements are used. Numerous missions in the past 40 years contributed significantly to our understanding of physical interactions in near-Earth and interplanetary space.

The research field of Space Plasma Physics accommodates two groups that focus on the study of the magnetospheres of different planets as well as the heliosphere.
