2024 NASA Heliophysics Summer School
UCAR Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science (CPAESS) is now accepting applications for this unique summer school focusing on the physics of space weather events that start at the Sun and influence atmospheres, ionospheres, and magnetospheres throughout the solar system.
The 2024 NASA Heliophysics Summer School, which will be held in person this year, August 14-22, 2024
This year’s theme is Comparative Heliophysics. During the 2024 Summer School, participants will explore how similar concepts and principles of heliophysics apply under different conditions. The summer school will focus on universal processes in heliophysics such as dynamos, plasma flows, magnetic reconnection, and particle acceleration. Examples of these processes in action will include the dynamics and evolution of the Sun and other stars, solar and stellar atmospheres and winds, and planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres. The implications for planetary atmospheres and climate, planetary evolution, and exoplanetary habitability will be considered.
Application Deadline is February 29, 2024
