Boulder Solar Day (postponed until further notice)

Tuesday, December 29, 2020

Regrettably, we are having to postpone this year’s Boulder Solar Day. Due to concerns about the contagious nature of the Coronavirus NCAR/UCAR are recommending canceling or postponing large meetings. New date TBD.
*December date above is just a placeholder*

2020 Boulder Solar Day Highlights:

  • Keynote—“When the Sun Goes Rogue” by Delores Knipp, Univ. of Colorado

Boulder Solar Day provides an overview of solar research being accomplished at local institutes. The one-day meeting offers a relaxed setting that encourages informal interactions with both local and visiting researchers. The day's oral presentations will be bookended with a "Director's Update" kickoff talk by Daniel Baker, LASP, and concluding with Delores Knipp giving a special Keynote titled "When the Sun Goes Rogue." The Keynote is followed by our usual well-catered reception to encourage continued discussions. Both this reception and the extended breaks between sessions during the day allow lengthy poster viewing.

If you can't make it in person but you'd still like to see the Keynote talk, we will be webcasting it and recording it for posterity! Click on this link to watch it live.

This informal 1-day meeting brings together researchers from HAO, LASP, NOAA, NSO, NWRA, and SwRI, as well as visitors from other solar institutes to discuss current progress on solar instrumentation, observations, and models.

Boulder Solar Day will once again be hosted by HAO in their Center Green Building 1 with sponsorship courtesy of HAO, LASP, NSO, NWRA, and SwRI. Participation is free and open to anyone interested in local solar research. As a courtesy to the organizers and to allow planning for space and refreshments, please register here [Registration].


Boulder Solar Alliance (BSA): Boulder is fortunate to have one of the greatest concentrations of solar physics institutes in the world. To encourage communication among researchers from these institutes, we have formed the BSA with representation from CU/CIRES, CU/JILA, CU/LASP, CU/SWx, NCAR/HAO, NOAA/NESDIS/NCEI, NOAA/NWS/SWPC, NSO, NWRA/CORA, and SwRI.
