HAO along with researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, The University of Göttingen, and NorthWest Research Associates have now shown that magnetic flux concentrations forming active regions on the sun emerge at a rate much slower than predicted by the prevailing current model.
Director Scott McIntosh is giving the next NCAR Explorer Series Lecture detailing the anticipated great American eclipse of 2017. The Explorer Series is NCAR’s new public lecture series appropriate for ages 12+.
Former HAO Senior Scientist Tim Brown has received a prestigious award from the National Academy of Sciences for landmark research that he conducted while at NCAR in the 1990s and early 2000s.
In June 2013, the two scientific instruments onboard the second Sunrise mission witnessed, in detail, a small-scale magnetic flux emergence event as part of the birth of an active region.
We present the first global 3D simulations of thermal convection in the oblate envelopes of rapidly-rotating solar-type stars.
The study of Sun-like stars helps us to put the Sun in context. HAO Newkirk Fellow Ricky Egeland has co-authored a new publication with Space Science Institute scientist Travis Metcalfe and Carnegie Fellow Jennifer van Saders.
