NJIT Physics Department Seminar
November 17th, 2014, Monday
Research in the Space Weather Research Laboratory (SWRL) of NJIT
Prof. Haimin Wang
Time: 11:45am-12:45pm with 11:30am tea time
Room: ECE 202
In this talk, I will first give a brief review on the general topic of space weather research and solar activity. Then I will report some recent discoveries of SWRL. These include (1) negative flares, (2) rapid changes of magnetic fields and flow fields associated with flares, (3) circular ribbon flares associated with spine-fan magnetic structure. The research is enhanced significantly by using the unprecedented data from the 1.6m New Solar Telescope at Big Bear Solar Observatory.
