The nearSun streamer belt solar wind: turbulence and solar wind acceleration The fourth orbit of Parker Solar Probe (PSP) reached heliocentric distances down to 27.9 R$_\ensuremath\odot$, allowing solar wind turbulence and acceleration mechanisms to be studied in situ closer to the Sun than previously possible. The turbulence properties were found to be significantly different in the inbound and outbound portions of PSP s fourth solar encounter, which was likely due to the proximity to the heliospheric current sheet (HCS) in the outbound period. Near the HCS, in the streamer belt wind, the turbulence ...

Applicability of Taylor s hypothesis during Parker Solar Probe perihelia We investigate the validity of Taylor s hypothesis (TH) in the analysis of velocity and magnetic field fluctuations in Alfvénic solar wind streams measured by Parker Solar Probe (PSP) during the first four encounters. The analysis is based on a recent model of the spacetime correlation of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence, which has been validated in highresolution numerical simulations of strong reduced MHD turbulence. We use PSP velocity and magnetic field measurements from 24 h intervals selected from each of the fir ...

How Alfvén waves energize the solar wind: heat versus work A growing body of evidence suggests that the solar wind is powered to a large extent by an Alfvénwave (AW) energy flux. AWs energize the solar wind via two mechanisms: heating and work. We use highresolution direct numerical simulations of reflectiondriven AW turbulence (RDAWT) in a fastsolarwind stream emanating from a coronal hole to investigate both mechanisms. In particular, we compute the fraction of the AW power at the coronal base ($P_\textrm AWb$) that is transferred to solarwind particles via heating between ...

Turbulence Characteristics of Switchback and Nonswitchback Intervals Observed by Parker Solar Probe We use Parker Solar Probe (PSP) in situ measurements to analyze the characteristics of solar wind turbulence during the first solar encounter covering radial distances between 35.7R and 41.7R. In our analysis we isolate socalled switchback (SB) intervals (folded magnetic field lines) from nonswitchback (NSB) intervals, which mainly follow the Parker spiral field. Using a technique based on conditioned correlation functions, we estimate the power spectra of Elsasser, magnetic, and bulk velocity fields separately in the SB an ...

Twotime energy spectrum of weak magnetohydrodynamic turbulence In this work a weakturbulence closure is used to determine the structure of the twotime power spectrum of weak magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence from the nonlinear equations describing the dynamics. The twotime energy spectrum is a fundamental quantity in turbulence theory from which most statistical properties of a homogeneous turbulent system can be derived. A closely related quantity, obtained via a spatial Fourier transform, is the twopoint twotime correlation function describing the spacetime correlations arisi ...

On the Interpretation of Parker Solar Probe Turbulent Signals In this Letter we propose a practical methodology to interpret future Parker Solar Probe (PSP) turbulent time signals even when Taylor s hypothesis is not valid. By extending Kraichnan s sweeping model used in hydrodynamics we derive the Eulerian spacetime correlation function in magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence. It is shown that in MHD, the temporal decorrelation of smallscale fluctuations arises from a combination of hydrodynamic sweeping induced by largescale fluid velocity delta u(0) and by the Alfvenic propagation ...

In this Letter, we present an analysis of twopoint, twotime correlation functions from highresolution numerical simulations of Reflectiondriven Alfven Turbulence near the Alfven critical point r e . The simulations model the turbulence in a prescribed background solar wind model chosen to match observational constraints. This analysis allows us to investigate the temporal decorrelation of solar wind turbulence and the validity of Taylor s approximation near the heliocentric distance r(c), which Parker Solar Probe (PSP) i ...

A MODIFIED VERSION OF TAYLOR\textquoterightS HYPOTHESIS FOR SOLAR PROBE PLUS OBSERVATIONS The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) spacecraft will explore the nearSun environment, reaching heliocentric distances less than 10 R_{☉ }. Near Earth, spacecraft measurements of fluctuating velocities and magnetic fields taken in the time domain are translated into information about the spatial structure of the solar wind via Taylor\textquoterights \textquotedblleftfrozen turbulence\textquotedblright hypothesis.
