We invite you to participate in a special issue of the Planetary and Space Science journal, entitled “Solar Wind Interaction with the Terrestrial Planets”. Topics will include all aspects of planetary plasma physics and interactions in the inner Solar System, e.g.:
(a) magnetospheres, ionospheres, auroras
(b) the solar wind interaction with planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars) and their moons, or with asteroids/comets
(c) plasma interactions with exospheres, dust and surfaces
(d) intercomparisons of planetary environments
Contributions are welcome that address previous, present, forthcoming and planned observations from space, as well as ground-based observations, theoretical modelling or simulations. Laboratory studies on planetary analogues aiming to simulate the surface-plasma interaction will be considered as well.
The deadline for submission in the 1st of July 2014, leading to a publication in end of 2014. Regular papers are expected, and the usual refereeing process will be applied for publication in PSS. Please inform us if a shifted deadline would be more convenient for
Please indicate your interest in contributing to the special issue, together with a preliminary title of the intended paper by March 17. An approximate abstract, if available, would also be appreciated.
