A new perspective on the driver of space weather: the Sun's corona as a globally coupled system

Karel Schryver
Lockheed Martin

The Sun's dynamic magnetic field is the origin of all of the variability in the heliosphere and in geospace that we refer to as space weather. This variability occurs on a hierarchy of time scales ranging from the full 11-year solar cycle that determines the Sun's global dipole field down to less than the few hours on which a large solar flare or coronal mass ejection occurs.

The full-sphere observations of the Sun that are enabled by the Solar Dynamics Observatory and the STEREO spacecraft stress the globally-connected nature of the coronal magnetic field and its coupling into the heliosphere. With expanding observational coverage of the dynamic solar atmosphere, supported by growing modeling capabilities that move towards data-driven assimilation, a new realization unavoidably dawns: understanding the solar corona requires that we learn how to deal with a continually evolving system, always relaxing from the evolution of its surface boundary and from explosive coronal mass ejections, but rarely in a state that our current modeling capabilities would have it.

Dr. Schryver will illustrate the recent lessons about the solar corona with image sequences obtained by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the STEREO spacecraft, and the Hinode mission that together enable us to trace the Sun's magnetism from the surface into the space between the planets.

Using tried and tested methods of constructing habitats from ethnobotanical and ethnozoological useful species for self sustainability on Mars

Posted by Andrew Planet on June 26, 2020 at 8:00am 0 Comments

To maximize crop yields on Mars it would be advantageous to do away with annuals and biannuals by engineering the latter into perennials as standard. Not only would that entail far less work to grow produce as the act of replanting is made obsolete, but per given cultivated area perennials bring forth more food and materials with less demand from the soil than the equivalent of annuals.

Imagine a superfood annual such as lentils engineered into a lentil tree for which there already…

This paper greatly extends the possibility of what a Goldilocks zone can be.  Its no longer the Goldilocks zone as a single expanse, its the Goldilocks zones for a particular area

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…
