1/30/2018 - The Magnetic Sun


3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Geology 3656

Presented By:
Vasyl Yurchyshyn - BBSO


In this talk I will introduce the 1.6 meter Goode Solar Telescope (GST) and the novel instrumental work on adaptive optics that the BBSO team is doing in Big Bear. The presentation will also briefly review several studies performed by the NST team that are focused on fine-scale structures of quiet Sun, solar flares, and sunspots. The research areas that will be discussed include moving magnetic features, Ellerman bombs, formation of sunspot penumbra and waves, sunspot evolution, a white light flare, small-scale dynamics in the penumbra, as well as small scale phenomena such as magnetic field dissipation, chromospheric spicules, and jets.
