Congratulations to Mausumi Dikpati for her recent promotion to Senior Scientist. Mausumi received her PhD in physics from the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore. She came to HAO as an Advanced Study Program Postdoctoral Fellow and she has since continued her career trajectory within NCAR.
Nicholas Pedatella of the High Altitude Observatory is the recipient of the SCOSTEP Distinguished Young Scientist Award for 2016. The award is for his work on atmospheric variability and data assimilation and ground-breaking contributions to our understanding of the influence of lower atmospheric waves on the spatial and temporal variability of the mesosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere.
Michael is a current post-doc with HAO since 2014 in a joint appointment with RAL. He works with Art Richmond, Wiebke Deierling, and others at HAO, CISL, CU Boulder, Penneylvania State, and the UCAR Center for Science Education as part of the NSF Frontiers in Earth System Dynamics (FESD) Electrical Connections and Consequences Within the Earth System (ECCWES) collaboration.
The AAS Nova site is featuring a recent publication in the AAS journal by Paul Bryans of HAO. In the past sungrazing comets have produced extreme ultraviolet emissions as they passed through the sun's corona.
A paper was published today in Science by a team from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Chiba University in Japan, and the University of Tokyo. It is titled "Large-scale magnetic fields at high Reynolds numbers in magnetohydrodynamic simulations."
Fan and Fang's recent publication shows significant advances in global-scale fully dynamic 3D convective dynamo simulations of the solar convective envelope. These simulations demonstrate the role magnetic field plays in the self-consistent maintenance of the solar differential rotation.
