The main objective is to improve our understanding of the solar dynamo and the solar cycle. This requires a synergy between observations and numerical simulations/modeling. Any relevant studies, including but not limited to observations by the instruments onboard Solar Orbiter, are welcome.


  • Structure of the flow fields, such as meridional flow, differential rotation, and convective flows

  • Roles of the flow fields in the solar dynamo

  • Distribution and evolution of magnetic flux at high latitudes

  • Magnetic flux emergence

  • Causes of cycle variability

  • Long-term observations

  • Connection with stellar magnetic activity studies
