Recent years, the subject of cosmophysical plasma jets attracts more and more scientists working with non-equilibrium magnetized plasma. The phenomenon of plasma jets was reported in various space domains: chromospheric and coronal jets, erupting filaments, high-beta jets in the magnetosheath and reconnection exhausts in the magnetotail. A number of mechanisms of jet generation were proposed: magnetic reconnection, stochastic generation in a region of not-fully developed plasma turbulence, and induced by interaction of MHD discontinuities with boundary layers. Jets have been found as an important driver of plasma transport and plasma penetration across the boundary layers by means of such mechanisms as reconnection, impulsive penetration, and kinetic effect of ions with a finite gyroradius. The Session encourages presentations of new observational and modeling results related to jet generation, propagation and interaction with boundary layers.
