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.

Beyond sunspots: Studies using the McIntosh Archive of global solar magnetic

Thursday, December 15, 2016

In 1964 (Solar Cycle 20; SC 20), Patrick McIntosh began creating hand-drawn synoptic maps of solar magnetic features, based on H-alpha images.

Approximating a model’s “true” state by applying Kalman filtering to solar cycles, a technique first developed in the 1950s and 1960s to help Apollo 11 settle safely on the Moon.

Coronal and Heliospheric Evolution

The magnetic field in the Sun's atmosphere continuously evolves through processes of emergence, diffusion, and reconnection, resulting in ongoing reorganizations of the global coronal/helio- spheric magnetic morphology, as well as in the slow buildup of magnetic energy in twisted or sheared magnetic fields.
