International Team on Partially Ionized Plasmas in Astrophysics (PIPA)

The primary goals of the team are to exchange ideas, establish collaborative links and develop joint strategies for tackling current problems related with solar and astrophysical partially ionized plasmas. Therefore, we will meet at ISSI to discuss the latest developments in these fields, to interpret existing ground- and space-based observations, and decide modelling strategies to be carried out between the meetings. The expected outcome of the research will be a better understanding of the different astrophysical environments in which partially ionized plasmas play a significant role, and the establishment of scientific links between different astrophysical communities.
