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.
The Spanish Astronomical Society awards the prize for the best PhD thesis in astrophysics of 2018 to Dr. Daniel Nóbrega Siverio, one year-old postdoc at RoCS.
