Summary:We propose to develop a sophisticated modeling capability to capitalize on the unique measurements expected from Solar Probe Plus (SPP) and Solar Orbiter (SolO). The model will help to integrate these measurements with those from other spacecraft, including STEREO and SDO, and Earth-based observations, into a coherent picture of the inner heliosphere. We will refine an existing 3D MHD model of the corona and solar wind, together with a focused set of tools, so they can be used to interpret observations and to plan observing campaigns for SPP and SolO. We will improve our Wave-Turbulence-Driven (WTD) model to accurately capture the physics of the solar wind. An accurate model will provide a global context to connect in situ and imaging observations, and will allow researchers to investigate the relationship between different observed quantities, and their consistency with solar wind models.
