Heliophysics Summer School 2016 & 10th Anniversary Celebration
“Explosive Energy Conversions and Particle Acceleration”
26 July - 2 August, 2016 - Boulder, CO
Please view the full schedule of events here.
On Tuesday, July 26, thirty-two students, and eight faculty will begin the seven day Heliophysics Summer School. The 2016 Summer School will begin with an overview of the various components composing the Heliophysical system, and review some of the universal physical processes at work throughout the system. It will then focus in on several kinds of explosive events which serve to illustrate these universal processes that occur through the coupled Heliophysical system. The explosive events include solar flares, coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and, geomagnetic storms and substorms. The school will also cover the impacts these and other explosive events might have on infrastructure and people on Earth.
This is also the 10th anniversary of the school, and on Monday, August 1st, there will be a celebration with the following guest speakers:
