LWS/SDO-3/SOHO-26/GONG-2011 Workshop - Solar dynamics and magnetism from the interior to the atmosphere
The goal of the workshop is to discuss recent advances and new problems in the exploration of the Sun's interior structure, solar dynamics and dynamo, mechanisms of sunspot and active regions formation, sources of solar irradiance variations, and links between the subsurface dynamics, flaring and CME activity.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) mission is providing a large amount of new data on solar dynamics and magnetic activities during the rising phase of the current and highly unusual solar cycle. These data are complemented by the continuing SOHO mission, and by ground-based observatories that include the GONG helioseismology network and the New Solar Telescope. This unprecedented amount of data provides a unique opportunity for multi-instrument investigations that address fundamental problems of the origin of solar magnetic activity at various spatial and temporal scales.
