The Heliophysics Summer School is in session in CG1 until Wednesday, July 16th.
Students and undergraduate faculty will learn about the exciting science of heliophysics as a broad, coherent discipline that reaches in space from the Earth's troposphere to the depths of the Sun, and in time from the formation of the solar system to the distant future. At the same time, a goal of the Summer School is to provide a professional development opportunity for undergraduate faculty to incorporate heliophysics and astrophysics examples into physics, astronomy and earth science courses.
The Heliophysics Summer School focuses on the physics of space weather events that start at the Sun and influence atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere of Earth and their counterparts around the other planets throughout the solar system.
The 2014 Summer School is focusing on the foundations of heliophysics while exploring connections to adjacent disciplines from the perspective of our local cosmos: stars like the Sun, planets like those in the solar system, and formation histories not too dissimilar from those that are relevant to understanding the formation, evolution, and present state of our immediate space environment.
