SOLARNET school “High-resolution Solar Physics”
Date & Venue: August 31 – September 4, 2020 at Institute of Physics, University of Graz, Univ.-Platz 5 8010 Graz, Austria
The Sun is the only star where fine structures down to sizes below 100 km can be observed directly. Numerical simulations of the dynamics of the solar convection zone and the photosphere have shown that processes at these small scales (and even smaller) are essential to understand the complex phenomena of solar activity like sunspots, chromospheric heating, flares etc. This School, therefore, intends to provide the students an up-to-date knowledge on observational and theoretical aspects of high-resolution solar physics by lectures on:
– Instrumentation for high-resolution solar physics
– High-resolution observations of the solar photosphere
– Spectropolarimetry and the photosphere-chromosphere connection
– Solar oscillations and wave phenomena
– High spatial and spectral observation of stars
– DKIST – A new high-resolution solar telescope
Besides the lectures, there will be space for own contributions and students are strongly encouraged to give short presentations of their research work. We expect students that are working on their thesis or young postdocs.
The total number of participants is limited to 25. Please register and specify
(i) why you think you should be ranked among the first 25 candidates,
(ii) if you need free accommodation.
Registration is open from March 1 to April 30, 2020.
