Mausumi Dikpati of HAO has won a 2017 Wenner-Gren guest professorship award of Stockholm. This prestigious award is given annually to 6–8 scientists worldwide from all areas of science. About 30–50 scientists get nominated each year.
HAO won three of four outstanding accomplishment awards at the UCAR staff annual holiday celebration and awards presentation. UCAR President Antonio Busalacchi announced the winners to be Stan Solomon for “Mentoring”, and Mark Miesch for “Education and Outreach.” HAO also received the “Scientific and/or Technical Advancement” award for the TIE-GCM model.
On November 5, 2016 UCAR/NCAR held its annual Super Science Saturday event at the Mesa Lab in Boulder. Kids of all ages were treated to a variety of interactive exhibits including hands-on activities, Science Wizard shows and demonstrations that illustrated fundamental scientific discovery in a fun and engaging environment.
We develop a three-dimensional kinematic self-sustaining model of the solar dynamo in which the poloidal field generation is from tilted bipolar sunspot pairs placed on the solar surface above regions of strong toroidal field by using the SpotMaker algorithm and then the transport of this poloida
The linearly polarized solar limb spectrum caused by the absorption and scattering of anisotropic radiation has a very rich diagnostic potential, given its sensitivity to the thermal, dynamic and magnetic structure of the solar atmosphere.
In 1964 (Solar Cycle 20; SC 20), Patrick McIntosh began creating hand-drawn synoptic maps of solar magnetic features, based on H-alpha images.
