Welcome to 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:

HAO Colloquium Series presents Joseph Huba, NRL

Joseph Huba

Modeling the Plasmasphere with SAMI3: The study of the plasmasphere is extremely important to understanding space weather phenomena; for example, it plays a critical role in the regulation of radiation belt dynamics.

Bill Lotko

Bill Lotko has been an HAO affiliate scientist since 2010. He is a professor of Engineering Science at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College and is a past interim dean of the school.

Mark Rast

Mark Rast has been an HAO affiliate scientist since 2006. He was an ASP postdoc from 1993 to 1995, and an HAO scientist from 1998 to 2005.

Martin (Marty) Mlynczak

Marty Mlynczak has been an HAO affiliate scientist since 2000. He is a senior research scientist in the Climate Science Branch at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA.

HAO Scientist receives William Bowie Medal

HAO Scientist Ray Roble

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) announced this week that it is granting top honors to HAO senior scientist Ray Roble. Ray has been awarded the William Bowie Medal, AGU’s highest honor, for his pioneering research into Earth’s upper atmosphere.

Synoptic Network Workshop Overview

Synoptic Workshop

The High Altitude Observatory recently partnered with the National Solar Observatory to hold a 3-day workshop to discuss and gather community input on science requirements, capabilities and instrumentation for a next-generation synoptic network of solar observing instruments.

Earth's Magnetosphere

This image is a snapshot from the Lyon-Fedder-Mobarry (LFM) Global Magnetosphere Model. The LFM helps scientists study the interaction between the Sun's magnetic field plasma and the Earth's magnetic field.
