Magnetic Fields on the Sun: All That Stuff From E&M Really Works!

Presenter Full Name
Dr. Brian Welsch

Year & Semester
2013 Fall
Presentation Date
September 9, 2013

Dr. Brian Welsch from UC Berkeley will present this talk. Essentially all solar activity is modulated by the Sun's magnetic field, ranging from dramatic solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) to longer-term radiance variations that can affect terrestrial climate. As it happens, several concepts discussed in courses covering electricity and magnetism (E & M) have direct application in modeling solar magnetic fields. [Available on DVD in the SSU library.]
