Preparing for Solar Probe Plus: Probing the Solar Wind Acceleration Region with Remote Sensing of MHD Waves

ROSES ID: NNH14ZDA001N      Selection Year: 2014      

Program Element: Physics of the Inner Heliosphere

Principal Investigator: Craig DeForest

Affiliation(s): Southwest Research Institute
