Grand Challenge Research on Subauroral Polarization Streams

Joule heating of the ionosphere simulated by the NCAR TIE-GCM

A team from the NCAR High Altitude Observatory, Johns Hopkins University, and Rice University, led by HAO scientist Wenbin Wang, was awarded a prestigious NASA Heliophysics Grand Challenge Research Grant to study the magnetosphere-ionosphere interaction known as subauroral polarization streams.

What might happen to the well-known 11-year solar cycle if the Sun were spun up to rotate more than two times faster? To investigate such questions of the dependence of the Sun's internal dynamo on parameters such as rotation we must look to other stars with different physical conditions.
