Manuscript Submission Deadline 24 April 2023

The recently launched Parker Solar Probe (PSP) and Solar Orbiter (SolO) have opened a new era in the exploration of the Sun and inner heliosphere. Both the spacecraft carry remote-sensing instruments capable of imaging the solar corona/near-Sun environment and shedding light on the coronal heating and solar wind acceleration processes. PSP is equipped with a telescope called Wide-Field Imager for Solar Probe (WISPR) which observes the corona in white light. It provides off-Sun centered images from distances of some tens of solar radii from the Sun. SolO has onboard different remote sensing instruments, such as the Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI), which provides images of the corona at 174 Å, 304 Å and in the Lyman-alpha line; the METIS coronagraph which observes in white-light and in the Lyman-alpha line, and the Solo/Heliospheric Imager (HI) capturing images of the outer corona and inner heliosphere in white-light.

We propose a research topic aiming at collecting scientific contributions mainly based on the exploitation of image data from PSP/WISPR and SolO/EUI-METIS-HI. Also, we welcome contributions highlighting the links between in-situ plasma measurements and remote sensing observations from PSP and SolO, joint studies with other space missions, and comparison with theoretical and numerical modelling.

We welcome original research articles, review contributions, mini-reviews, and perspective articles on the state of knowledge.
The issue is open to any contribution exploiting remote-sensing observations from PSP and SolO. We encourage contributions to the following subjects:
- characterization of the physical properties of eruptive events (flares, CMEs, coronal jets) observed from PSP and SolO;
- studies on the propagation and dissipation of MHD waves in the solar corona;
- assessment of the links of plasma properties observed both in the EUV and white light emissions;
- presentation of new techniques of analysis for the exploitation of multi-spacecraft/instrument observations;
- determination of the three-dimensional structuring of the solar corona/solar wind with multi-instrument observations;
- joint remote-sensing and in-situ plasma observations;
- studies of the developments of plasma instabilities observed in the solar corona and solar wind;
- comparison of global magnetic field models and numerical simulations with observations;
- sungrazing comets and small bodies observed with PSP and SolO.

Keywords: Solar Corona, Parker Solar Probe, Solar Orbiter, Solar wind, Observations, Modelling, Eruptive events, heliosphere, turbulence, waves


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
