The Effect of Small-Scale Magnetic Structures on Inferred Solar Continuum Brightness

Average intensity of magnetic structures
Monday, December 3, 2018

Solar irradiance models indicate that irradiance variations are dominated by changes in disk-coverage of magnetic structures, whose brightness is thought to be determined by their size and average magnetic flux density.

Meridional Circulation Dynamics in a Cyclic Convective Dynamo

Meridional flow variations induced by magnetic cycles.

Surface observations indicate that the speed of the solar meridional circulation in the photosphere varies in anti-phase with the solar cycle.

Lisa Upton

Lisa is a Visiting Scientist here at HAO since September 2014 and also is currently working for Space Systems Research Corporation. In the spring of 2017, Lisa will begin a NSF postdoctoral fellowship at HAO, working as a collaborator with the dynamo group.

Mausumi Dikpati

Dr. Mausumi Dikpati is a Senior Scientist in the High Altitude Observatory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Her main research interest is in modeling dynamics and MHD of the solar interior and the solar dynamo.

Sunspots and Photospheric Dynamics

Sunspots are the most prominent manifestations of magnetic field in the visible layers of the solar atmosphere. Their origin is a dynamo process operating in the solar convection zone.

Magnetic Flux Emergence

Understanding the process of magnetic flux emergence through the solar convection zone is crucial for understanding the link between the observed magnetic activities at the surface and the dynamo-generated magnetic fields in the interior.

Long-Term Solar Variability

Overview and Research Goal

2013 Synoptic Network

Purpose: The workshop is being held to discuss and gather community input on science requirements, capabilities and instrumentation for a next-generation synoptic network of solar observing instruments.
