Solar physics at the advent of the European Solar Telescope

Scientific rationale

Solar physics is at the advent of a new age marked by the construction of solar telescopes of the 4-m class. The European Solar Telescope will bring an order of magnitude improvement in photon fluxes and will explore scales of tens of kilometers. Such are the requirements of the new trends in solar physics that, beyond the traditional questions on coronal heating and solar dynamo, starts focusing on the intimacies of plasma and magnetic field joint dynamics (waves, reconnexions, turbulence), the energy transfer and the relation between turbulent local conditions and large scale magnetic features in the sun.
As part of this european project, this joint workshop of the spanish and french communities will examine and discuss their common scientific and technical interests and ideas for this new and exciting time.
