2nd Eddy Cross Disciplinary Symposium
Sun, Earth, Planet, Space, Atmosphere and Ocean
8 - 12 June 2020
8 June, 2020 to 12 June, 2020
Vail, CO, USA

As our planet becomes one among many thousands of known worlds, our needs to understand how Earth’s space and climate react to our variable star grow in urgency.   The aim of the second Eddy Symposium is to bring scientists (both early-career and more senior) together, from diverse disciplines, to help define the next decade of helio-physical research, including its implications for planetary and astrophysical objects.  

This Eddy Symposium will focus upon techniques for optimizing scientific return to broad questions such as: 

  • How do we tackle the multi-physics and multi-scale science needed to arrive at a more holistic understanding of heliophysics? 
  • What new threats does solar variability bring within a changed climate? 
  • Is there something special about our place in the Universe?
  • How do we meet the challenges of nurturing and producing a new and diverse generation of scientists in heliophysics?
