For the first time torsional Alfvén waves have been directly observed in the solar corona by a team of researchers from the University of Oslo and the University of Warwick. The discovery sheds light on the origin of magnetic waves and their role in the heating of the Sun’s outer atmosphere, the corona.
Coronal rain is one of the most striking features of the solar atmosphere. With the higher resolution of the European Solar Telescope, solar physicists will better understand their structure and formation.
We need the extreme capabilities of the European Solar Telescope in order to fully understand the role of spicules in the mass transport and heating of the outer solar atmosphere.
The Rosseland Centre for Solar physics continues growing and attracting young, talented researchers. Get to know four new PhD students at the beginning of their scientific ventures.
Solar physicists have uncovered how the Sun’s magnetic waves strengthen and grow as they emerge from its surface.
After ten months spent at the provisory offices at Ullevål Stadium, the astrophysicists are back to Svein Rosseland’s house, and all together celebrate the inauguration of the new premises for Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, one of the nine Centers for Excellence at UiO.
With the advent of the 4-m European Solar Telescope, the surface of the Sun will be observed with unprecedented detail. Such measurements will help us understand the twisting motions responsible for the generation of vortex flows and waves that propagate higher up in the solar atmosphere.
Helle Bakke, second year Ph.D. student of the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, is the winner of the "Audience choice" award at this year's PhD poster session.
The European Solar Telescope (EST), a new 4 meter class solar telescope to be built in the Canary Islands (Spain), will help solar researchers to discern the ultimate details of reconnection at the finest spatial scales thanks to its superb spatial resolution.
