The next UK-SOSS talk will be held on 17th September, 2020, 10:00 am (UK time)

August 19, 2020, from Marianna Korsos

After the successful trial period of UK-SOSS, we will continue the seminar series once a month.

We have agreed and arranged with the ESPOS (European Solar Physics Online Seminar) organisers that UK-SOSS and ESPOS seminars will be not held in the same week.

The next seminar will be held on: 17th September, 2020, 10:00 am (UK time)

Speaker: Prof. William Chaplin (University of Birmingham)
Title: Probing the Solar Cycle with BiSON: The Solar-Stellar Connection
Zoom link:
Meeting ID: 953 3817 1418


In this talk I will review how we are utilizing helioseismic observations made by the Birmingham Solar-Oscillations Network (BiSON) to provide unique inferences on the solar activity cycle, using its unprecedented long timebase dataset that is now extending into a fifth cycle. I will also discuss how we are using these data together with asteroseismic data, collected on other Sun-like stars by the NASA Kepler Mission, to provide a broader perspective on stellar activity and dynamo action in main-sequence stars.

With warmest regards,

Marianna Korsos, Chris Nelson, and JiaJia Liu
