On the Connection between Propagating Solar Coronal Disturbances and Chromospheric Footpoints

SDO/AIA 171Å sub-fields
Wednesday, September 14, 2016

The Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore the (thermal) interface between the chromosphere, transition region, and the coronal plasma observed by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

The Sun, the Moon, and us: American eclipse of 2017

The Sun's seasonal weather patterns

Scott McIntosh details the Sun's seasonal weather patterns and demonstrates how understanding the formation, interaction and instability of the Sun's activity bands will considerably improve forecast capability in space weather and solar activity over a range of timescales.

A different picture of the interior of the sun

Friday, September 5, 2014

New observational work provides more information about the evolution of the Sun's interior and origins of its enigmatic 11(-ish) solar cycle. The research potentially opens the door to improved forecasting of decadal-scale solar variability.

On the watch for solar superstorms

NCAR solar physicist Scott McIntosh is raising awareness. While the current peak in the 11-year cycle of sunspot activity is on the weak side, the Sun might still produce a major storm at any point.

New Observational Technique Can Peer Deep into the Sun’s Ocean

Image of Sun’s photospheric magnetic field

Led by Scott McIntosh of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, the scientists used a device on the SDO spacecraft to map the magnetic fields that are woven throughout the sun, and all around it.

The Eclipse Megamovie Project

Eclipse team in Palm Cove, Queensland

A team, of HAO scientists and other collaborators that included Joan Burkepile, Scott McIntosh, Paul Cally, and Lucia Kleint, met in Palm Cove, Queensland to witness the first total solar eclipse over Australia since 4 December 2002.
