Flares that are far more energetic than typical solar flares have been observed on solar-like stars, leading to predictions that the average occurrence rate of these so-called “superflares” on “stars with similar rotation periods to the Sun is about once in 500 to 600 years” (Maehara et al., 2015).… continue to the full article
99. Preflare and flare turbulence in the transition region
by Natasha Jeffrey, Lyndsay Fletcher, Nicolas Labrosse (Glasgow) and Paulo Simões (MacKenzie).
High cadence flare observations with IRIS provide evidence for transition region heating by turbulence.
UKSP Nuggets are published on a monthly basis highlighting solar physics research led from the UK.… continue to the full article

A position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available at the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics, University of Oslo.
The fellowship period is 3 years. Starting date preferably 01.10.2019 but might be negotiated.
The position is connected to the project “Exploring Millimeter Indicators of Solar-Stellar Activity“ (EMISSA), which will use the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array (ALMA) for a re-evaluation of the activity of stars by means of a comparative solar-stellar study with the Sun serving as a fundamental reference.… continue to the full article
