Web Advisory Group (WAG) meeting

This month's WAG meeting will feature a presentation by Nathan Wilhelmi on Agile development.  While not new, Agile frameworks have come into the spotlight in recent years for yielding significant improvements over heavyweight process. The talk will describe the Agile process, describe the experience of using Scrum for software development, and describe benefits gained from the transition to Agile.

The meeting details are as follows:

Room:   CG1-2503               
Date:     Thursday, September 19, 2013
Time:     10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Data-driven modeling of Magnetic Field Evolution in the Solar Corona

HAO Colloquium Series presents Eric Sutton, AFRL

The Role of Helium in the Thermosphere During Recent Solar Minima: The previous solar minimum exhibited sustained low levels of solar extreme ultraviolet radiation and geomagnetic activity. This affords the opportunity to study upper-atmospheric conditions that are outside the domain of the available historical data and empirical models of the thermosphere. With the decline of solar and geomagnetic activity, neutral helium becomes dominant at progressively lower altitudes.

Statistics of Local Seismic Emission from the Solar GranulationWe have applied computational seismic holography to SDO/HMI observations of high-frequency helioseismic oscillations in the quiet Sun to locate predominant sources of seismic emission with respect to the structure of the solar granulation.  The regions of greatest seismic emission are the edges of photospheric granules, thought to be the source of transonic plumes plummeting into the Sun's interior.  This is roughly consistent with our general understanding of the kinetic excitation of sound by turbulence, based

CISM Space Weather Summer School

The CISM Summer School is intended to give students a comprehensive immersion in the subject of space weather: what it is, what it does, and what can be done about it. Space weather is many things: beautiful when seen through the eyes of a sun-viewing telescope, fascinating when studied for its alien worlds of magnetic structures and phenomena, awesome when witnessed as a solar eruption or auroral storm, and devastating to the users of services it disrupts. Space weather links the Sun, the Earth, and the space in between in a branching chain of consequences.

Climate Implications of Frontal Scale Air-Sea Interaction

August 5-7, 2013

Center Green Campus, CG1 Center Auditorium

Recent studies have shown that ocean fronts, especially western boundary currents, can affect the full depth of the overlying troposphere. An important question is whether there is any remote response to this process. The workshop is aimed at improving understanding of the climate response to ocean frontal variability by bringing together modelers and observationalists. The workshop will cover existing work and discuss options for a coordinated plan to progress the research.

Heliophysics Summer School

The 2013 Heliophysics Summer School will focus on the physics of space weather events that start at the Sun and influence atmospheres, ionospheres and magnetospheres throughout the solar system. The solar system offers a wide variety of conditions under which the interaction of bodies with a plasma environment can be studied. The school will address not only the physics of all these various environments but will also go into the technologies by which these various environments are being observed.
