It is the aim of this project to continue the collaborative research about solar wind parameter variation effects on Jupiter auroral radio emissions. During the visit, will be done studies with radio emission data from Nançay radio-telescope and from Cassini spacecraft radio detector. This study will be performed during the Cassini Jupiter flyby, from the end of 2000 to the beginning of 2001. The radio emission parameters will be correlated with solar wind data from Cassini and with solar wind MHD propagation models since 1 AU. (AU)
