Into Africa, A Scientist’s Journey

“Chui”was the word on the radio; Swahili for leopard. The Masai are still the best wildlife spotters on the Mara, but they are not averse to using modern technology when it suits them.

CSAC Stokes Forward Modeling

The interpretation of spectro-polarimetric data is never straightforward, whether because of the caveats of the data themselves (photon noise, polarimetric calibration accuracy or other instrumental effects), or limitations in our knowledge of how to solve the radiative transfer problem (this is

The Birth of New Ideas and a Future Scientist

A very important aspect of HAO’s science is the HAO Visitor Program. Recently, HAO was fortunate to host a five-month visit by visiting scientists Drs. Jiuhou Lei and Xiaoli Luan from the School of Earth and Space Sciences, University of Science and Technology of China.

Observing the Quiet Sun: A Weak Cycle Offers Opportunity for Expanding Solar Understanding

Observing the Quiet Sun

Since the dawn of the Space Age in the 1950s, solar maxima have coincided with strong upticks in sunspot activity but the current cycle, Cycle 24, which was expected to peak in Spring of 2013, has been unusually quiet.

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.
