Supercomputer 3D modeling of magnetic fields could help mitigate damage from geomagnetic storms.
The path of a solar eclipse through Earth’s ionosphere, which can be quite different than it is at ground level, appears to explain patterns of ionized particle depletions.
The field of space weather forecasting could take cues from its Earthly counterpart to increase the reliability of models as well as warning times ahead of inbound solar storms.
The same algorithms that help control self-driving cars and speech-to-text functionality have helped build a virtual instrument to study the Sun.
Maps reveal how the Sun’s magnetic field evolves through solar cycles.
Short-term funding strategies present serious problems for programs like solar activity studies, where observations and analysis span decades or longer.
