WaLSA: Waves in the Lower Solar Atmosphere

WaLSA is an international science team with a focus on wave activity in the lower atmosphere of the Sun. The Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics (funded by the Research Council of Norway; project number 262622) has supported formation of the WaLSA Team by providing a generous grant for the kickoff and a followup meetings of the team (in Oslo, in January and August 2019) as well as for data storage facilities.

About WaLSA

WaLSA science team aims at obtaining a comprehensive picture of wave propagation in the lower solar atmosphere, ranging from the generation of waves in the sub-photospheric layers to their channelling and eventual dissipation in the magnetised outer atmosphere. These studies will be performed using high-resolution observations interpreted, in tandem, with theoretical models and simulations.
