Turbulence Transport in the Solar Wind: Theory and Observations

Turbulence is ubiquitous in solar wind plasma. Turbulence is thought to be responsible for several interesting phenomena, such as coronal heating and solar wind acceleration, solar wind heating, and scattering of the solar energetic particle in the solar wind. In this talk, I will discuss the evolution of turbulence and its implication from the solar surface to the outer heliosphere. I will present the comparison between the theoretical results and the spacecraft measurements (such as Parker Solar Probe, Solar Orbiter, and Voyager 2).
