NASA’s “Living with a Star” Heliophysics Summer SchoolNovember 12, 2019, from Marianna Korsos
2020 Theme: Explosive Space Weather Events and their Impacts
July 14 – 21, 2020 – Boulder, Colorado
Application Deadline: February 21, 2020
We welcome you to apply for the 2020 NASA Heliophysics Summer School. We are seeking advanced graduate students, as well as post-doctoral students, who have completed some research in the area of space physics or related fields. You will learn about the intriguing 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.
The 2020 Summer School will follow a core set of lectures on the heliophysics system including the Sun, solar wind, planetary magnetospheres and the ionosphere/ atmospheres. Lectures will focus on the physics of explosive events such as solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and geomagnetic storms and their potential impacts. Lab activities and professional development opportunities will also be included.
