Theory & Modeling and Data Exploitation Working Group
Back to Heliophysics Home Page
Working Group Leads:
James F. Drake, Jr., University of Maryland
Jon A. Linker, Predictive Science, Inc.
The “Theory & Modeling and Data Exploitation” cross-disciplinary working group will examine the role that theory and modeling plays in exploring the key science issues of space and solar physics
Specific Questions this Working Group addresses:
- What role does theory and modeling play in unraveling the complex temporal and spatial dynamics revealed by satellite and ground-based observations?
- Can theory and modeling serve as a bridge between the “heliophysics laboratory” and the plasma universe?
- How can we use advances in computational power to increase the physics fidelity of models and obtain deeper insights?
- Can laboratory based experiments explore key science issues underpinning the dynamics of the heliosphere?
