on-Neutral Coupling in Solar Prominence Structure and Dynamics

ROSES ID: NNH09ZDA001N      Selection Year: 2010       Duration: 4 years

Program Element: Focused Science Topic

Principal Investigator: Holly Gilbert

Affiliation(s): NASA Goddard Space Flight Center


The proposed work involves extending and testing previous work conducted by Gilbert et al. (2002, 2008) on cross-field diffusion of neutrals in prominences. Additional modeling of ion-neutral interactions in prominence plasma will be conducted, with the objective of understanding how ion-neutral coupling affects formation, structure, dynamics, longevity, and stability of prominences.

Gaining a better understanding of the ion-neutral coupling in prominences will enhance our more general understanding of ion-neutral coupling in a magnetized medium.
